Google demonstrates augmented reality of Glass - Chicago Sun-Times

Excerpt from an insightful Andy Ihnatko Google Glass perspective
"The on-stage demo of Google Glass was unusually detailed. It appears to be a self-contained device (no external wires and batteries). It’s lighter than many pairs of sunglasses (we hopefully assume that we’re talking about Ray-Bans, not the solid gold frames favored by Kanye West). It can be intimately connected to Google+ for live posting. Yes, you can wear them over your prescription glasses.
And as the skydiving demo demonstrated . . . the damned things actually work. CEO Sergey Brin apologized that many of Glass’ features are hard to demonstrate in front of a crowd (“You’d need to wear a pair in front of a pair”), so Google didn’t show off things like street directions and text messages."
