      Thank you for your insight, Eduardo. So, what do you suggest?

      is_glasses? is_wearable_on_head?

      because we have done a crappy job at reconciling the two :(  but we are working on it.

      Difficult to answer such a question without some more information:

      1) Do you have any idea of the capabilities of Google Glass?

      2) If yes, can "is_google_glass" become a virtual attribute (derived from the capabilities themselves)?

      3) In any case, other firms already have or are planning to introduce similar devices or head-mounted displays. It might be better then to introduce a more abstract device type attribute (similar to is_tablet, is_smarttv, is_console, etc) than the firm-specific is_google_glass.

      Which by association of ideas brings me to the following questions:

      4) Apart from the virtual attributes, is there a fundamental reason why the capability lists at http://www.scientiamobile.com/wurflCapability and at http://wurfl.sourceforge.net/help_doc.php differ?

      5) There are other devices which are not by themselves wireless devices or mobile phones, but do have an embedded Web browser: iPod and Samsung Galaxy Player are the most prominent, but things like car dahsboard browsers are slowly creeping out of labs. No, I do not have a need to support such information -- my point is more to know whether anybody out there is already having to contend with them.
