    I guess it is an accessory?
    Anyone know if they release an iPhone App too?
    Anyone know about the Glass explorer contest on Twitter ?
    I got an invite (I hardly go on Twitter so I just noticed)
    will see what that is about ?

    I assume they've an iPhone app in the labs but doubt it would pass Apple's authorization.

    I got my answer it will work Bluetooth but not with all functions (SMS GPS ). If I decide to spend the $1500 for the explorer Glasses I might as well get an Android phone with it.

    Well done and congrats for being a winner. You had to tell them how you planned to put them to use right?

    I don't know how I feel about something being "projected" into my eye for most of the day...

    You better wear eye patches every day then because that's how vision works. What we see is a result of light being projected onto the retinas. Google Glass is completely safe.

    I guess if it was a device made by Apple or designed for the iPhone I jump right at it.

    I think not supporting the iPhone is a stab at Apple by google. Little do they realise that it could be the death of the glasses.

    I hope google doesn't support Apple, that could mean faster Apple glasses :D in truth, I wish they would make this available for visors on helmets like iron man :D

    I could link it to my desk USB toy missile system, I could target people with Glass and take em' out!

    I'm banking on a payrise at work, if I get one I'll buy some Google Glass, if I don't like them I'll swiftly sell them on eBay... because I'm sure someone else would love to have them :)

    https://www.google.com/glass/terms/
    I looks like no reselling
    Anyway I wonder why you have to have a google wallet account and maintain it ?
    I have one used it once and my debit card is expired. I may load my new debit card and make few purchases I guess?
    I am actually looking of getting the Galaxy S4

    I think I should be alright, I'll have to get mine when they're publicly available. The terms are quite normal, I think you could get pass them quite easily.

    So you can't resell them even when they become publicly available?

    It says commercially resell. Aslong as you don't commercially resell the Glass I'm sure you'll be absolutely fine.

    The terms will probably change when Glass becomes publicly available.
