Glass itself will evolve. For example, the screen is too small, and competitors coming to market address that. Google will likely bring a different product out in their next phase.

I agree that google glass doesn't have killer apps in his pockets, but it doesn't mean that google glass will not have in the future and there are lots of google glass apps development companies in the Unites States.

Is Google Glass Obsolete?
I predict Glass will become indispensible in the workplace in numerous professions, anywhere in fact where the access to instant information whilst away from the office will facilitate productivity, but the question you may ask yourself is will the general public need to avail themselves to such technology? The simple answer is that following the initial negative publicity, the public will not need to purchase a pair of Glass for themselves, but they will want to and as we have seen with the introduction of smart phones even the unemployed youth of limited means will ensure that they have the latest technology even if nothing more than as a status symbol.

Re: Same criticism for any new device
Glass is already being evolved. I saw an article Friday in Popular Science that described a few competitors, all with unique new features.

Re: Same criticism for any new device
Anon, 

But what would many people do if they wouldn't complain about every new device even before they can even put their hands on them, or before such device hits the market? 

The price for Google Glass has been set at around $600. You can find them in the market by the second half of the year.

Re: What???
Wearables have huge potential. But I would agree that there is a lack of applications for this platform for the time being. I think that embedded internet technology along with AI and voice recognition is really going to help grow the wearables market.

As it stands right now, devices like Google Glass exist in a realtive vaccuum. Back that is going to change as everything surrounding wearables becomes connected and smart.

Same criticism for any new device
Over-priced, no apps, screen too small, too much reliance on text -- these were all the same criticisms made about the iPhone when it came out, the Palm Pilot when it came out, and laptop computers when they cam out.  All of these devices evolved to improve on their weaknesses, and were eventually adopted into wide-spread use within the range of uses for which they are suited, many of which nobody had ever thought they needed before.  The same will be true of Glass.
