You wouldn’t hit a guy wearing Glass, would you? Google is selling a test version of its wearable Internet device, Glass, from its website for $1,500. But a research firm said parts and assembly of Glass only amount to $152.47. And some people have raised privacy concerns because Glass can take photos and video surreptitiously.

So, while wearing your Google Glass, you’ll be the envy of every gadget hound who doesn’t mind looking like a dork, a sucker and a creep.
