Neat idea! I wonder how long it will take before they stereo it and allow users to download and watch videos. I would think that gamers would like this as an added view for 3d gaming..

Fascinating concept! The user may see something different from what the video shows given the form factor. I am really interested in knowing how comfortable wearing it. In addition to the technical challenges, the distraction to the user needs to be accessed properly. Cell phone talking while driving is already proven to impose dangerous to the road. I don't know how well people interact to the environment with multiple screens in front of them. Maybe, assisted driving and assisted walking will help.

It's a cool concept but Project Glass will have to get away from an antenna near the temple region if they don't want users concerned about SAR from wireless components. Also, based on that form factor, it will be fairly difficult to design all of the electronics into the device without investing in custom ASICs. Power supplies (including battery), wireless devices with EMI shielding, a processor, storage, audio and video codecs + analog interfacing. It will be a challenging design task for sure. Maybe some variant of the DaVinci processors would do the trick?
