Google's Project Glass

Google recently unveiled "Project Glass" which I thought might be a late April Fool joke. But apparently it's not. Basically, Glass is a smart phone with a heads up display built into a pair of glasses, which would function something like this:

 

 At least, in a commercial that's how it would function. A lot of people have been making fun of this ad, pointing out how there are likely to be advertisements and the dangers of falling off buildings because you're distracted by playing your ukelele.

I don't know. I think it looks like the coolest thing to come around in a long time, like something from my science-fiction induced daydreams in my youth, and I, for one, would like a pair. I would also like a jetpack and some repulsor beams and a patriotic friend who had been accidentally put into a natural state of suspended animation and another friend who was a Norse god of thunder.

All that to say... I promise to use the Glass technology only for the good of all humanity and to defend us from evil.

P.S. I would also like some bulletproof armor or something.
