How can Google Glass be better?

Google_Glass_Explorer_EditionRight now there’s very few details about Google Glass. If you’re like me this is mega frustrating if you’re thinking about coding stuff for it.

A few people have already done unboxings, some social celebrities on Google+ are actively raving about it, but really not giving much away!

So what are our hopes for Google Glass? How do we want it to work?

Here are some of my Google Glass hopes and musings:

1. I really hope the ‘audio trigger’ can be changed from “Ok Glass,”.
2. I hope it will be accessible to most people, this means it needs to be around £200 or cheaper.
3. Is it viewable in low light conditions?
4. Can I hook into its ‘sensors’ or shall I continue with my own Wearable API.
