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.

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

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?

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.

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

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
