    Saw this on Drudge:

    Google Glass user treated for internet addiction caused by the device

    Doctors noticed the patient repeatedly tapped his right temple with his index finger. He said the movement was an involuntary mimic of the motion regularly used to switch on the heads-up display on his Google Glass.

    He said he was “going through withdrawal from his Google Glass”, Doan explained, adding: “He said the Google Glass withdrawal was greater than the alcohol withdrawal he was experiencing.”

    I suppose after wearing Google Glasses a person thinks they have superpowers so they might miss them a bit.

    BTW, here's an early prototype being tested (or is that Oculus Rift prototype?):
