    It was a picture of BMW's new HUD thingy showing speed, driving directions, etc. Here's a different one.

    Different focus and area.
    The HUD doesnt interfere with you looking at the road, the glasses would as you have to change focus to a tiny area that isnt even really in front of your eyes but slightly above.

    In a society which has the technological means to decrypt and store such huge amount of data as ours, the violation of privacy happens in both case.
    There is countless studies showing how easy it is to track someone from spare bits of data, and if you followed the Snowden case, you know it's not just paranoid theories anymore.
    I see no problem with a person snapping pictures of passer-bys or recording pedestrian traffic in an area or recording the happenings in a public establishment. By law, they are free to do so. But you also have the right to ask them to not record you if it makes you uncomfortable.
    It's free only because your society seems to have no concept of privacy. Hopefully, more civilized ones DO make it illegal to randomly get private informations about passerby.
    Pointing a big failure of your legal system doesn't suddendly makes ignoring privacy ethically okay.
    As for privacy, eh i'm not concerned.
    You just summed up the entire problem. People are too blind, dumb and careless to be concerned with privacy - until the shit hits the fan of course, but at that time it's a bit too late to suddendly realize it.

    You don't change focus. That's one of the neat aspects of it. This isn't a screen like you're thinking it is.

    People are worried of being recorded for one of two reasons, being caught doing something they know they shouldn't or apparently out of fear of recording an embarrassing incident and being laughed at on the youtubes. To the former i would quote Liar Liar and say stop breaking the law asshole. To the latter, especially to the one who said, "The last thing you want is to be laughed at on YouTube" all I can say is grow up and learn to be well adjusted.

    In a society with nearly monthly public shootings and religious zealots who want to blow themselves up to kill as many innocents they can and incurable fatal medical conditions, the last thing you want is someone to laugh at you. Just seems unfeasible to me. Especially with the notion that guns don't kill people, people do. Yet ban Google glass because people don't record people, Google glass does.

    People wondering where in your vision field google Glass is, ever played halo? Notice how your ammo is in the upper left corner? Bring that a little closer to the center of your vision and that's basically how it looks.

    ...OMG. Could you imagine having an Airsoft gun that tracked how many pellets you had and linked with your Google Glass

    /drool
