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.

just get a piece of glass and write Google on it ... problem solved and $1500 saved!

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.

Hah so for anyone keeping track.... even the prices on the accessories are outrageous.

 

$50 for a protective pouch. (It's a bag with a string)

$75 for a protective case (it's one of those soft camera cases with a zipper)

$75 for a clear shield that you can use instead of tinted lenses or perscription (piece of plastic worth .07 cents.)

$85 for stereo earbuds (umm ok)

I'll wait for the consumer version and hopeful price drop.

Yikes!  I think we can start using the term "Google tax".

Probably just the preview/early access price for those who want it now and want to test it.  I doubt these will be the prices after it is released to the general public.  No way anything will sell if so.

The question I have here is: Why should I pay $1500 to beta-test their product for them?

No. don't have the extra $1500 to spend. IRS took it a few months ago.But will wait until pricing goes down and perhaps then.

i never actually though of that... sitting here thinking if i had one, i would actually agree with you... imagining it being in my right eye seems in-the-way.... left eye for sure

Hopefully the production version will be in left & right side versions, or switchable. I can't use anything audio-related on my right side, since I'm hard of hearing on that side.

 

Right-handed, but left-eared. :)
