    Post your Google Glass mockups here! (For those who don't have $1500, don't live in the US and don't have time to make a full submission)

    I found the font Roboto-Light to be the best match.

    Mine is basically Endomondo for glass.

    There are going to be just so many cool ways this device gets used. It's going to be revolutionary! #excitement

    LOL. I was thinking about animating it to "play" Happy Birthday, but I decided to just keep it as it is.

    I used to use tape and write numbers on them since I can't read sheet music very well (I know how to read notes, just my vision is horrible. :eek:).

    She's just upset that she can't afford them. :) (and has to have those horrible cheap glasses instead...)

    Wonder if you can use Google Glasses like beer goggles. That would be a reason to get them. Tonight feels like a redhead night! Then google puts a hologram of a redhead over the beast you took home from the bar.

    This is also the case for me. I really hope it's not $1500 for us as well as developers. Personally think that would be too high.

    Does anyone know how it works with a SIM? Is it the kind of thing that you would buy on contract?

    I thought these would be bluetooth 4.0, and would run off your iPhone or high end Android.

    That being the case, I don't know what tech in the glasses would make it cost $1500, maybe it's the R&D that making the cost so high up front, but will drop drastically when Apple and other competitors come out with their versions. I do think these need to be in Oakley frames with with transition lenses to really get people to wear them and keep them on.

    I kind of agree, while they look awesome, they look a little wacky. Imagine if you were the only one in your group of friends wearing them - would look a little odd. even if they just had a version with non-corrective lenses.

    The other thing that I thought about was in the cinema. Okay Glass: Hangout with all my friends so they can watch this film for free.

    You're in the U.K. so I am not sure if you have ever seen VH1's pop up video. (You can see on youtube) That could be another possibility for add-ins to a film giving you "additional information" about the movie you're watching.

    I also like what Jessica posted with what key to push on the piano. I think most of us can't even fathom what's coming in the next 5 to 10 years.

    Because it's a non mass produced prototype of a new type of device?

    This thing has so much potential it's insane. I just don't know when the technology will be available for it to reach its potential. I feel this will be limited for quite some time. Super pumped for when this becomes mainstream (AKA not exorbitantly priced).

    Although I'm not so keen on wearing it...don't really like the whole "glasses," nerdy look...

    Wow genius, that's basically what I said and that the high cost up front is because its new and its R&D. My comment was alluding to the fact that I don't think there is much tech in it besides the fact it connects to the Internet somehow and projects things on a tiny lense in front of your eye.

    LOL, that made me laugh. :D

    I'm pretty sure that won't happen. I mean, they don't do it on Android.

    In the OS, maybe not. In other ways, it's strongly encouraged. And they're definitely going to want to make money with Glass. Generally speaking, selling $1500 glasses isn't a very good way to make money. For these things to actually do well, it's going to take cheaper hardware, and advertising is Google's preferred business model.

    It might not be as blatant as in that picture, but I'm willing to bet that it'll be there somehow. You could have businesses pay to get Google Glass to encourage you to visit them, or have Google Now offer 'preferred' suggestions. Since the glasses will be on all the time, they could always expand into the blackmail business, too.
