want to know more

I would like to know more... like how does it use Bluetooth? what kind of profiles does it use? Maybe it will create profiles of it's own. Does wifi suck the battery out of it?  Does the Android phone need an app for it?  

And after all... is wearable electronics really going to work? isn't it a little uncomfortable after sometime of wearing it?

The privacy issues will prove to be a larger stumbling block than the technology issues -- even the battery density ones.

...but they didn't fully tear it open to check on the TI part because they could not without potentially ruining the $1,500 glasses ...so the mystery remains

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
