With sales opening up today I was wondering if anyone is going to get Google Glass.  I can't think of a reason to have one right now and the price is steep.

I would love to get my hands on one, but I'm going to wait for a while.

No interest, what so ever. Also, $1500 is pretty steep.

Didn't even know it was going on sale today.

I prefer a sunglasses version and/or a contact lens version. I do not wear glasses or contact lens at all so...

Seems to me it would invite unwanted attention, harassment, and possible theft.

No interest. This would have to be $100-200 to even gain my attention. $1500 for beta testing? No thanks

No interest at that price, especially since I'm moving away from Google services in general.

Na, no interest in it.  Plus, to be one of the first to have it, price is to steep.  Will wait to see what the consumer price is and even then I wont get it unless I find a use for it.  Have enough tech as it is collecting dust.

The same was said about smart phones when then first came out. Now they are an every day thing.

 

I'd like to take Google Glass for spin, but think the novelty fact would wear of quickly.

Give me a left eyed version, then we'll negotiate a nice price!

Negative. The chances of me ever getting one are zero.

No, it sounds like an interesting experiment, but there are other tech purchases lined up for when/if I have 1500$ of disposable income to spend.
