    Why not? There's no such thing as personal privacy today anyway. :rolleyes:

    I guess that it's what people want. Or enough people, anyway. What I want is augmented reality, not sharing my view with others. So I was frustrated about Google's focus on sharing, rather than on virtual display. And VR goggles are focused on gaming, with real world blocked out.

    I do think that this product will be more acceptable from a privacy perspective than Google Glass was, because large sunglasses are much harder to miss. Google Glass was designed for all-day wear, so it was small and light.
