People already kill themselves by using a cell phone in places they shouldn't (driving, walking, etc), how much worse is it going to be when they are wearing them? [/quote:


All depends on how they're used, I would think. I could see some cases where such technology could reduce serious accidents (putting a notification in your field of view would be safer than having somebody hunt down their phone to see what's going on), but the easily distracted could have considerable problems.

In all seriousness, while I'm not likely to be an early adopter of this technology (I'm a believer in Ray Kurzweil's saying of "technology is only expensive when it doesn't work"), but it's something that I could see myself interested in a few years down the road.
