Google glass is a project with a good intentions but have they forgotten about the majority of the world who still cannot afford anything. With this said, the said 'demand' for google glasses should not be high if the people who can afford them have any sense left in them before they waste away their lives becoming fat and unhelpful to society. -Ali
