Google Glass: I want my sci-fi future now

Just noting down my long-time product idea here, so i can say i thought of it way back when…

Ultimately (and i appreciate that this is limited by battery life etc), I would want my glasses to be permanently recording on a one minute loop so that I can have the opportunity to record and retrieve those moments where you’re just not quick enough to pull a camera/phone out.  But then, ‘ultimately’ we we all be wearing these with a constant stream to the internet anyway, and if you choose to make it public, the friends/anyone will be able to tune in on YouTube and just watch what you’re up to with certain highlights flagged by the user/wearer.  Cool, huh?
