Very neat, but I wouldn't have any real need for them.

I would need to know how distracting or not distracting that extra image on the top right corner would be, these glasses better work as sunglasses for when outside at minimum. I already wear glasses for reading, but it seems that google glasses are used mainly outside so I will be ok. They will probably have a price tag of about 100.00 which is ok and justified but I don't care for a mounted camera, I will skip. It seems like a toy really.

What reasons is there to buy them?

FWIW: Way back in the early 1960's, I was attending training on a new navy radar system which required a clearance to be in the building. They demonstrated to the class of about 8 of us, these glasses with a really small Cathode Ray Tube on the side with reflecting mirrors which placed an overlay on your line of site of a radar screen. I found that it was really slick, It was not lightweight but kinda subliminaly, you could notice changes in the radar screen in a flash. It was at the time classifided but they never developed it.

I'll be passing too. I'm prone to headaches and these (admittedly cool) glasses already have me reaching for the ibuprofen.

I'm thinking they take pictures of things they are pointed at when voice activated.
