* People ask questions: 'What is that?'; 'is that Google Glass' or 'what happened to your eyes?/Is your vision OK?' ; 'Can I try them?' is what I've gotten so far. I usually explain and let them use if for a bit if I know the person or if we are in a friendly enough environment.
* People look at you and look at you like you're some sort of alien.
* People look at you and pretend they're not looking at you and elbow their friends and point at you and make comments under their breaths.
* People look at you with disdain.

I've been to the supermarket a bunch of times with it and have gotten no reaction. I was also stopped the moment I got the Glass in NYC (I had a Glass bag, so that might have had something to do with it).
All interactions have been very enjoyable and friendly.
It's actually much more difficult to get used to the device itself. I don't wear glasses, so the frame bugs my nose.
Do you think many people will purchase the glasses? Also, what do you think about the aesthetic?
It's pretty cool you got something so expensive for free, though! Do you get to keep it? Will you eventually sell it?
