This would help a lot in work environments. The augmented reality would come in handy and increase production. Google Glass failed because there was no clear market for it, too expensive, bad performance, and privacy/piracy concerns. Even though it's more expensive, dynaEdge could succeed, because it's aimed at the work/enterprise segment, where there's more control. I would be worried about corporate security, because the footage from all the people wearing them would give up all your secrets to anyone who hacked your system. Not to mention employees stealing/selling info for income enhancement.

Google Glass 2 has been a roaring success in industrial applications: https://www.wired.com/story/google-glass-2-is-here/

I still want a GooGlass (or literally anything of a similar purpose!) at a more consumer pricetag though - I want to try out and see how useful always-on HUDs are on my walking/driving person vs phone-screening crap.

I don't think I'd like dealing with all the hostility. Paranoid people and borderline psychos have attacked people wearing Goggle Glass (2 cases, both in San Francisco). Everywhere else, they just draw dirty looks from half the folks you meet. But maybe that's more about the wealth divide, and a $200 model would alleviate those feelings.

Some of that was also the lack of a recording light, iirc. Plus, since I'm not in SF, and give zero fucks about the looks people look at me with, I'd be fine. Besides, I'm not exactly someone who goes out all that much either...
