Re: Google Glass and it's effect on sailing

I love technology and frequently use my iPad/iPhone for navigation and other functions while aboard, but I'm not sure I want a lens with digital "stuff" in between me and the big blue yonder. I like the wind in my eyes and an unobstructed/unaltered view of the water around me. That's part of sailing's allure.

I can just imagine watching a regatta and seeing all the skippers wearing their Google Glass...reminding me of the people in the malls who walk around with a bluetooth headset on.
