Augmented reality one step further towards creepy maybe?
It would be cool though, but I've worn glasses since fourth grade until two three years ago when I started using lenses, and I wouldn't go back to glasses again voluntarily.
Besides those hipster glasses wouldn't look right on me.

Actually looks cool, but i see a high rise in glasses theft

And road accidents. "Google told me to turn right on X-Street, and instead of the book shop, I was hit by the bus".

"I was walking up the steps, when a messages prompt popped up blocking my view, making me miss my step, and fall flat on my face".

Not to mention break ups.

"I was looking at and talking to this hot girl, when my wife appeared on screen thus seeing what I was seeing, I was later savagely attacked upon returning home".

They forgot to show all the other people yelling get out the way Ahole! Watch where your walking!

Think about it, even just walking in a mall how many people walk into you without even looking or acknowledging it happened and stand in the middle of sidewalks blocking traffic without having crap popping up in their face. And kids! Holy moly, that's whose gonna be getting these stupid things. Imagine all the kids that will get turned into road kill.

I say go for it. This will help speed up natural selection and maybe it will finally catch up to stupid and make the world a better place!

I still believe a lot of technology is a cure looking for a disease.

Okay, it's nice. Why don't we solve some major problems instead if we're so damn smart?

It will be popular because it's cool and the users are willing to purchase cool so they will (think they will) be cool.

What me? Pessimistic?

Haven't had my coffee yet. (ha)

Ya, but you'll get richer inventing eggies and glasses with pop ups than making people healthier. And not only that, ok so you cured someone... They won't be buying that again, but when someone steals your over priced, accident causing glasses you'll be right back in that store!
