I work at a boring computer repair shop as a money maker, and my other job, as an apprentice, involves metal working where all day long I'm either surrounded by metal sparks, fine stone / metal dust floating through the air, and paint.

 

I'm sure paint would be a little hard to adapt to, but I'm wondering what early adapters of Google Glass have to say about durability, and what kind of environments and accidents they've had while using Google Glass.

 

I'm interested in possibly using the glasses to film some of the work I'm learning to do, and just looking for some advice on what others are doing to protect their investment in possibly damaging scenarios, including what kind of interference in recording they experience from protective adapters they may have fashioned / bought.

$1,500 is a bit much, in my opinion, to risk the possibility of damage/destruction.  I'd recommend something like a GoPro camera where you could get three or four for that price and they are designed to be used in a less than perfect environment.
