Interesting. How will they pick and choose between the various "developers?"

It's official, app developers can now sign up to get Google Glasses at: http://www.google.com/glass/start/ If you get them, I hope to hear from you about what you think and will do with them.

How much value to the vendor does feedback from the developers regarding the product interface and functionality provide? Beyond the developers need to have a device in order to perfect their applications, does their feedback result in improvements to the documentation or marketing strategies?

Over email, Babak just said: "We opened the application process today to get the system to a few thousand more people in the next few months." I'm checking for details on where/how to apply

I'd love to see a pair of these. It, or something like it, probably has more to do with the future of computing than does today's smartphone. The biggest issue is probably battery life. The electronics of a typical smartphone aren't a whole lot bigger than these things appear to be, but the batteries definitely are. Other than the battery, the big question in my mind doesn't have anything to do with the technology. I'm very interested to learn about the distraction factor. Even though the display if completely head's up, the act of concentrating on a device can still cause significant distraction. For example, some studies have indicated that even a hands free phone will distract a driver.
