Just to set the ball rolling for imagining the applications using Google glass - I would imagine  an application where I will have a thumb drive along with aera plug into my ears and that thumb drive is able to show me a movie thorough the Google glass that I am waering , giving it an experince like wathcing it on a 15 inch monitor!

Prabhakar, 

That sounds like you would like an Augmented Reality kind of app. :) Totally possible. 

Google Glass will be on the market by the second half of this year with a price tag of $600.

After that is when developers are going to be crazy developing apps for Glass, when there is more knowledge about what kind of apps work best, or what consumers would like to have.

I recently saw an article about using Google Glass appls for teaching how to cook. That can be promising and it is just pure convenient!

Live streaming of surgery using Google Glass

In todays, local newspapers ( here in India) , I read a news article  about a progressive doctor have started using Goggle Glass to record and stream live the operation he is performing.

The Google glass is totally unobtrusive to the doctor while he is performing the operation and his students get to learn the whole process live.

So the Google glass has really started to catch  the users' imagniation!

And if such things are happening in India then I can imagine , there would be lot more exciting things happening in the developed world.

@prabhakar - If a doctor can use this technology for monitoring an operation, there must be many similar types of applications.

t.alex, 

That Glass video about the Glass Explorer is quite nice. He is using Glass for something useful, for his benefit. I like that. This is just the beginning or the wearable devices. Soon this is going to be quite common, just as smartphones are common today.

Susan, they will have to make the glass more elegant to wear :-) I saw some people wear and they all look so nerdy.
