    It's too much effort to twist my wrist and tap on a tiny screen.

    I'd rather have a set of specs (tethered to my phone) that gives me all of that voice controlled iWatch goodness presented right in front of the ol'e optical input system.

    The next big thing?

    They did the iSight, I own one still. Is it really hard to twist your wrist 1/4 of a turn? I hope not.

    First world problems :p

    Interesting idea, but Im not too keen on a device that would rely purely on voice. If I were in the office or out in public, I would prefer not talk out in space getting people to think Im crazy. The only other inputs for the iSight concept of yours would be physical buttons on the glasses themselves or control through the iphone, which to be honest is just as much work as twisting the wrist ;)

    You may be on to something there. I've noticed a lot more people appear to be talking to themselves lately. Just figured it was something in the air...

    I am a fan of controlling my xBox One via voice. I think the more devices focus on being controlled by voice the better voice recognition will become (hopefully!) which would be a good thing.

    Pretty much the reason why I never use Siri unless I'm alone. For this to be practical, we'd need to be able to control them silently (e.g. eye movement, brainwaves, etc).

    Well yeah at home alone Id probably use voice recognition like crazy. But I still look at people funny when they talk into the bluetooth headsets and not realizing they are wearing one. Im too low key to be receiving funny looks for talking to my glasses :eek:

    Hell with glasses. I want to have my eyes surgically replaced with iEyes (not to be confused with what a sailor says to their captain).

    Hah. I hear you. Not to mention fancy technology tricks like speaking to your devices never seem to work in public. Then you're stuck being that guy.. telling your phone to make a reminder 4 times while people look at you like you're crazy.. :D

    One of my brothers friends was among the first 1500 Google glass' users when they first we're doing beta testing a few years ago.
    He said it was so incredibly buggy & laggy that he actually preferred not to use them.
    Cool idea but way ahead of its time.
    I mean come on. We are just starting to make smart watches.
    Just like VR. In my opinion it's wayyy ahead of its time.
