    I hardly look at hot chicks in a convenient manner....it's biological man....gotta do the double take!

    I can't wait for this. I love to drive...I really do...but our society is not allowing me to drive the way I want to anymore. Insurance is killing me....****ing cops are killing me......the only places I can really drive nowadays are in the middle of the desert or on a racetrack..... I simply cannot drive slower than 75...I just can't....

    Really there's no difference between wearing them vs. looking at all the billboards, hot chicks, accidents, weird ****, and etc...you see while driving....
    See, your bias is already bleeding through..."only" for important texts/calls from "loved ones" while driving. How important is important? Who decides it's "important"? The same idiot user who decides everything is important to them?

    I get the argument that GPS, etc actually makes driving safer as it is actually related to driving. HUD is a great idea, keeps eyes closer to the road (note I did no say "on the road"). But hacking technical devices is so common and easy, any safeguards that Google might program into Glass will be undone in days if not hours by the aftermarket crowd--Glass is not designed for driving, it is designed for internet mobility via a wearable interface. Good luck driving with the Candy Crush crowd trying for a personal best beside you.

    Yeah, my wife texting/calling me is pretty damn important to me. I'd not need to answer the phone...but to have the glasses let me know is valuable...I can then pull over and answer if needed.

    And it should be up to the driver to decide what is important. Idiots will crash and kill people one way or another....the glasses won't make a difference, IMO.
