@SaneIT: that is a really cool idea and a way to get rid of the headgear until the technology gets small enough so that simple glasses can hold the processors. But the direction google currently moving in, doesn't seems they want to use glasses only for display.
That will be interesting to see, if cell phones develop the controls that are required to make Glass work then we may end up with a hybrid system of display in the glasses and processing in the phone. The glasses might become just another interface.
@SaneIT: don't worry I believe that all these advancement will definitely come to the cell phones, and they will come earlier than in glasses. The reason I believe that because there are too many competitors in the market in phone technology and the only thing they can beat each other is by introducing a new and a better technology. On the other hand the glasses are being made only by a single manufacturer. It is totally up to them how fast they will improve.
I think that we'll start seeing better implementation of products like Google Glass but until then yes there will some time where the cyborgs rule. Once they get the projector improved enough that you can use a plain lens then Glass will look like just another pair of eye glasses. I am hoping that some of these advancements come to cell phones too though. I would love for my phone to track eye movement as a control and to have better voice commands.
Sherly I have heard about some super soldiers being created by some countries on the concept of cyborg (thats what I think). They have all the highly sensitive gadgetary available to them and they can fight both day and night with similar ease. I do not know the details but in near future we can see people like cyborg roaming in between us.
@Sara: Future is just like an alien for us humans we don't know how it will look like, we visualize that aliens are not like human but we haven't thought of a single one without hands and feet or even both, which means either our thoughts are limit or we are not thinking out of the box. Same is the case with glasses. Most of the people perceive a future full of gadgets which will make their life easier and what will be more easer than getting things happen simply by moving your eye ball. I am not sure what the next thing we will think about future when google glasses technology will be 10 years old.
Everytime I watched The Jetsons, I asked myself if having a robot maid and everything else the family had was possible. That was back in the early 90s. Things have definitely advanced with time, so I guess anything is possible now. And with Google glass, I think The Jetsons community is not impossible anymore. Google's initial step may not be the only one. There may be others already working on similar projects. Would I jump in and join the bandwagon? I can't say. I may not want to at the moment, but things can change. So I'll keep an open mind about everything.

Now that TGen has broken new ground in genomic research by using Dell's storage, cloud, and high-performance computing solutions, the company discusses what will come next for it and for personalized medicine.
The Translational Genomics Research Institute wanted to save lives, but its efforts were hobbled by immense computing challenges related to collecting, processing, sharing, and storing enormous amounts of data.
Office and personal productivity tools come in a first-class and coach flavor set, but what makes the difference is primarily little things that most users won't encounter. What's the big issue in using something other than Office, and can you get around it?
We really don't want an "Internet of Everything" but even building an Internet of Everythinguseful means setting some ground rules to insure there's value in the process and that costs and risks are minimized.
Google's Chrome OS has a lot of potential value and a lot of recent press, but it still needs something to make it more than a thin client. It needs cloud integration, it needs extended APIs via web services, and it needs to suck it up and support a hard drive.
On a recent African trip I saw examples of the value of the cloud in developing nations, for educational and community development programs. We could build on this, but not only in developing economies, because these same programs are often under-supported even in first-world countries.
VMware's debate with Cisco on SDN might finally create a fusion between an SDN view that's all about software and another that's all about network equipment. That would be good for every enterprise considering the cloud and SDN.
Wearing a bulky, oversized watch is good training for the next phase in wristwatches: the Internet-enabled, connected watch. Why the smartphone-tethered connected watch makes sense, plus Ivan demos an entirely new concept for the "smart watch."
Cloud storage costs are determined primarily by the rate at which files are changed and the possibility of concurrent access/update. If you can structure your storage use to optimize these factors you can cut costs, perhaps to zero.
The Internet has evolved into a machine for drumming up a chorus of "Happy Birthday" messages, from family, friends, friends of friends who you added on Facebook, random people that you circled on G+, and increasingly, automated bots. Enough already.
