New sensibility needed...
When technology changes the way we live, we have to "learn" how to live with it.

We don't think twice about stopping for red lights or looking both ways before crossing the street. We had to develop these habits to accommodate cars on our streets, lest we be run over. 

The same will go for Google Glass. Listening to music while walking down the street will cut off a lot of "situational awareness." The worse that could happen is not hearing a car horn as you walk out into the street. This problem will be compounded while driving. How people manage or "multi-task" their sensory inputs will be the next challenge. 

And let's not get started with etiquette.
