    Maybe Google should just have one built into the final Google Glass. Decrease paranoia and provide protection for the camera.

    I like the idea, but it seems to me he's only using Kickstarter for publicity. He could have just posted his designs on Shapeways and collected a percentage off every cap printed. He won't be casting the caps, the bulk discount will be negligible, the main reason he's doing it via Kickstarter is because Kickstarter gets around.

    Duct tape does wonders and is rather inexpensive.

    because google glass isnt geeky enough, it needs a pencil holder added to it

    A) And if you set the thing on fire, you get a lens flare.
    B) He better not through stones in a Google Glass house.
    C) It better not break. I don't want to bust a Kap.
    D) If this thing sucks, I'm calling it GlassKrap.
    E) All of the above.

    Take your pick.

    Because that is long lasting and can easily be taken on and off?


    F) None of the above.



    So, you are saying this isn't a good idea?

    The goal has almost been made.

    Kickstarter kicked The Catboy's dog once, and now he's bitter.

    Am I the only one that doesn't think googleglass doesn't look nerdy. It looks pretty nifty imo

    I don't even think Google glass is a good idea.

    Probably.
    I like the idea but it looks retarded, cost aside.
    Unless I could make it look like a scouter and scan peoples power levels, I would never be brave enough to wear it.

    Isn't glass still a prototype? ("Explorer edition")
