    Typically product looking for a problem to solve.

    This falls into a class of products which engineers and designers find to be an interesting problem to solve but do not realize no one cares if this problem is solved. Do any of you think a Mechanic is going to wear these while trying to work on your car so they have the most update repair information. Hell no, no repair shop cares if they fix it the first time, repeat business for the same issue is profitable business especially under warranty when the Car manufacture pays for the repair.

    Aircraft assembly line workers have used instruction and information head up displays for years (they're somewhat bulky visors). They might use these. Almost nowhere else does it make sense.

    EDIT: @SpamSandwich , were you referring to the somewhat silly Mira Prism video that was included in the Glass article or Google Glass Enterprise. I suspect you meant the former.
