Is it ready for the everyone right now? Not really. Does the Glass team still have huge distance to cover in making the experience work just the way it should every time you use it? Definitely.
But I walked away convinced that this wasn’t just one of Google’s weird flights of fancy. The more I used Glass the more it made sense to me; the more I wanted it. If the team had told me I could sign up to have my current glasses augmented with Glass technology, I would have put pen to paper (and money in their hands) right then and there. And it’s that kind of stuff that will make the difference between this being a niche device for geeks and a product that everyone wants to experience.
Unlike the confusing Pixel, I continue to believe Google has really got something on its hands with Glass. Although this is a first and rather unattractive prototype, Topolsky's experience and the testimonies from Google staffers were extremely encouraging for the future of Glass and its ecosystem.
Evidently Google is planning to have Glass in stores for consumers by the end of 2013. And I'm personally extremely excited about that.
