    The Daily Show mocked Google Glass enthusiasts on Thursday night.

    "The Daily Show" smashed Google Glass enthusiasts to pieces Thursday night after they tried to sell correspondent Jason Jones on the device's virtues.

    In an episode titled "Glass Half Empty," Jones mockingly describes the discrimination Glass users have faced for nothing but a "face computer."

    Google Glass users featured on the show included Sarah Slocum -- attacked for wearing Glass in a Lower Haight bar -- and Kyle Russell -- the Business Insider reporter who was attacked in the Mission District for wearing Glass while covering an anti-Google protest.

    Slocum described her attack as a "hate crime."

    “The silly thing is they’re going to be wearing these things probably in a year," she said.

    Russell said that Glass acted as an "interface" between yourself and the real world.

    “Do you guys hear yourself when you talk?” Jones responded. “An interface between you and the real world? Those are called eyes.”
