Shouldn't be any problems.

The biggest problem I had with google glass (outside of the douchebags) was the price point.  TThe tech was kind of cool.  They just wanted huge money just for a developer kit, which is exactly the wrong way to go when you are looking for new applications for technology.

I had an idea for an application to help train baseball umpires.  Then i saw they wanted over a grand just for one dev kit.  As a result, MLB umpires still suck.

You were developing an app for a target audience of 200?

Yes, because in all of baseball there are only MLB umpires.   And in all of sports, there is no need at all for real time training of officials, except in MLB.

I hope that they make glasses for left eye dominant folks.

I hope that they make the display in other colors than red for us red / green colorblind folks (although probably not).

I hope that they avoid spectre / meltdown issues. Having my glasses hijacked by viruses would suck.

I would certainly find them useful when taking public transportation / walking / biking. OK . . . maybe not so much while riding a bike.

They are the only ones that get paid enough to afford $1000 glasses and an app.

With Vaunt, Intel is taking steps toward solving the Glasshole paradox: how to get consumers to wear wearables that don't make wearers seem like bad clichés of wearable users.

So...they styled it on the sort of clunky, low-budget retro eyewear you'd tend to find on a hipster douchebag?

Bold move, cotton.

Oh honey, I hate to tell you but in your case you don't need to wear AR glasses to look like a huge dork.
