i played around with a smartwatch and it felt annoying to have to put an extra thing on my wrist and the whole time i was wishing it was on my face instead
i didn't care for the camera on it too much but idk why people don't have the same reaction to smartphones in hands?
Trouble with Glass was the design (and the fact it was a crummy prototype billed at hipsters didnt help). It was too conspicuous and they kept promoting the privacy-invasive feature of "take a photo at any point whenever" which did creep people out.
For this to work the camera needs to be inconspicuous and the device more fashionable. Intel's "looks like normal glasses" spin was the best one so far.
although tbh that's some camera drain i could do without, i'd still make my video calls off a phone... i can see it being useful for translation and AR? but idk how you'd communicate to people that the camera doesn't take pics, and still idk why people aren't conditioned to worry about phones in hands 🤷
