Well, you know it's not the police, because they don't want a permanent record of what they do.

I finally saw somebody in DC wearing Google Glass in the wild. He looked even dorkier than the tourists on Segways.

A doctor I visited recently, was wearing a pair. It was kind of un-nerving.

As soon as they build it into a pair of thick-rimmed ray-bans and make it look cool everybody is going to be wearing them.

That's actually a pretty good application of the technology.  If you're just sporting them around town because douche, then that would demand a pretty good application of a cock punch.

For some of those places the inspectors should be wearing a Google Nose also.

Health inspectors were carrying around tablet pcs when the IPad was but a twinkle in Steve Jobs's eye. I'm not surprised they're early adopters of this technology.

NYC health inspectors wearing Glass? Is it so they can more accurately track the restaurants which refuse to pay their bribe demands?

They can track how many Michelin stars the restaurant loses with each infraction.

seems like a perfect application -- documentation of health code violations

As a Glass hater, someone who wants them banned in the bars and restaurants I frequent, this seems a legit usage. See also, Cops.

Really, subby? Using bus drivers as one of your examples? People who not only have to pay attention, but drive a predetermined route all day every day? Why the fark would THEY need Glass?

Otherwise you get a vindictive a-hole!

They already have, more or less, with custom near-normal-looking frames.  Still doesn't look cool, because the mechanism is still quite obvious.  There's obviously a LOT of room for improvement.  The big G has also now released its "wearables" concept as well -- for now that's basically moving more advanced functionality and Google Now Cards to watches.

And moike, "glassholes" isn't a joke, it's the correct and universally accepted term for Google Glass wearers.

The only reasons I could think of should already be covered by dash cam + internal camera of the bus. That covers the road in front of them for evidence in case of any accidents or collisions, and video evidence of anything happening with the passengers.  I guess glass might give a better image of passengers faces as they got on though.

Probably not as unnerving as my doctor who insists on putting both his hands on my shoulders to do my prostate exam.
