"Sometimes you get mobbed when you're wearing them," he says, showing me the nonprescription lenses that attach to the Glass. "Putting in these shades reduces that because it looks more like normal sunglasses. A couple weeks ago, I went to the library to get something 3D printed and totally got mobbed."

The dark lenses attach to the Glass frame with a little plastic piece that twists into place between the vertical struts that hold the nose pads.

"I want to 3D print this little plastic piece and put a magnet in it, decouple this from the Glass and put a separate magnet on the Glass, so I can just snap the shades on," he says. "Right now you have to take the Glass off to attach the shades."

And that will be the killer app for me: when one of Chattanooga's Google Glass testers tricks out his unit with a part that's 3D printed on The Public Library's Fourth Floor.
