They’re the future for now. But nothing is the future forever.
Mark Zuckerberg to Vanity Fair’s Kurt Eichenwald, when asked if mobile phones were the future of Facebook.

I think that’s the way it will be — wristwear-based computers will take off well before any type of eyewear-based computers become the norm (if they ever do — and they certainly won’t in the current forms).
I wouldn’t rule out Google knowing this as well, however.
I agree on both counts. I still sorta want a Segway, but there’s too much of a stigma against riding one in public now. I’m not saying that’s right — it is what it is.
My initial thought is “no”, but I think it’s way too early to write them off. I think the general concept, wearable computing, is the right one in terms of where we’re heading. I think some major design tweaks will likely be needed, but the glasses intrigue me.
