Worth Noting: Google Eyeglasses

This week there have been several reports about experimental eyeglasses being developed by Google. I can’t decide whether they would be boon or bane, but here is a video from Google showing what it envisions the future will be:

The project was the subject of an article in the April 5, 2012 New York Times. In a way, this would be a counterrevolution: With the advent of laser surgery to correct vision and remove the need to wear eyeglasses, a lot of eyeglass wearers have had the surgery. Now Google is experimenting with a way that would require people who do not wear eyeglasses to wear them. How the tables turn.

If these Google eyeglasses were available now at a reasonable price, that is, at a price competitive with “regular” eyeglasses, would you buy them? Is this the type of technology you are anxiously awaiting?
