As per the "in my face", the experience was actually beautiful, fulfilling, completing, "this is what I needed, this is what I longed for".
Anyway to see screenshots of what it looks like from your point of view when reading? Also how does it look on the person? Is it clunky?

Not directly, but it can be reconstructed to give the idea. I will post it later.

If you need to ask, you probably do not want to be seen wearing it ; ) .
The IT identity of the product is not concealed. (It has a cable going down from the left...) The design is very (in absolute terms) to extremely (in relative terms) good, and yet it could look much better if the glasses were shorter (width-wise): the 15cm length may remind of Hajime Sorayama's mortgage paying sales strategy products.

Mine are with silver body (instead of black) and I normally wear them with the lighter sun-filter plugin (instead of bare, fully transparent, or with the heavy sun-filter plugin), so they may look like this pictures (the first edited from available stock, especially to add the "shades", the others from video):



Given the vastly different effect of the available pictures, maybe you are better off with checking the available videos.

The screenshots from the original thread show the background is still not dark nor opaque enough. I like the overall idea though.. anyone know what causes the lack of background opaque/darkness (/ overall contrast) and what needs to happen to improve it

That the background is transparent is a feature, not a bug: that is an Augmented Reality device, not a Virtual Reality device - they are made to merge environment and computerized information. If you want the Moverio to hide the environment (which would be your personal customization), attach the darkest shades plugin which is packaged with the device. More clearly, you can use them as they are - full clear semi (say 90%) transparent screens -, or with the "sunshades" plugin, or with the "very opaque shades" plugin.

Contrast, you have a control (it makes the brights brighter). It seems to definitely impact on the battery.

I don't think they would be good for reading books. They would be good for using extensive crib sheets for cheating in college classes, though.

I have been there, they do - they can be very good for reading books. They are the solution if you are moving. What we originally, for centuries, did with manuals, after the peripatos met the miniaturization from mechanized printing (which remarkably allowed for abandoning miniatures), can be done much more comfortably now with Augmented Reality.

It must be noted for the unaware that one of the most remarkable outcomes of the recent science of adult neurogenesis appears to be how movement is critically important for constant neuronal development (caveats applied). It is not irrelevant to also mention how intellectual activity is also critical for neuronal survival.
