I can't stand Oakley glasses. They just reek of teenage male desperation & insecurity.

When google comes out with a chip to beam it straight into your head, tell me. Glasses, urgh.

I think this tech could be really cool, but I would be worried about having an active 3G/4G antenna next to my brain for many hours on end. That much radiation exposure can't be good.

I'd be more interested in something like those Sony goggles with 3D HD video and gaming to be honest. However if it can be built into my existing specs without adding any additional weight or eyestrain (or making you look like a pleb) I'd give them a try.
