I see a lot of press coverage about Google Glass, yet I haven't seen details of GIS apps that use it.

What GIS applications use Google Glass?

Are they that widely available? Anecdote (TL:DR): TMZ caught a young woman wearing one this week. She wasn't a recognized celebrity so someone in the bullpen asked who it was. She turned out to be Sergey Brin's wife, Anne Wojcicki. – mkennedy Feb 27 '13 at 21:21
@mkennedy Ahh, now I see. I should've looked closer, like here. Still, maybe someone from the gis community has proposed something in their #ifihadglass application that they'd be willing to share? – Kirk Kuykendall Feb 27 '13 at 22:06
I've got an early prototype pair of these - all be it without full operability. That said, they allow me to "stream" a 1:1 scale, photo-realistic, fully 3D representation of the world ;) – Andy TIce Feb 27 '13 at 22:32
@AndyTIce Cool, can you collect data with them too? Any problems with a thousand yard stare? – Kirk Kuykendall Feb 27 '13 at 23:27
1 Nokia have it already - Shame Glass is only for the US residents only. – Mapperz Feb 28 '13 at 2:53
