Google "After reading all the reviews, and talking to people who actually wore Glass, I just see a product plagued by bugs, and of questionable use, that's generating a lot of buzz because people want so desperately to have some new gadget to latch onto, and fear being wrong about the next major technology trend." Nobody wants a computer in their home. Nobody wants a cell phone and always be connected. Nobody wants an iPhone. The current version of this line? Nobody wants Glass. "I haven't worn Glass." Oh right.

Never mind all the complaints and other negatives. Just one thing: the $1,500 price tag.

Why pay so much money to wear a gadget that needs a smart phone and isn't very powerfull and lasts only a few hours?

If it's $100 I'd give it a go, but I'm not going to pay so much money (more than an iMac!) to look silly and be a target for robbers just so I don't need to look at my phone when it receives a notification.

I'd rather have a smart watch, but again at a reasonable price.

Well, then go DIY: please meet Flass
You will still look silly ;) but you can have fun hacking it (and it won't cost you a fortune)

Mass production of a product can divide the price up to 10 times. Don't expect to buy them at 150$, since google is probably selling them at a loss currently. But mass market price is not going to be 1500$ either.
