This screenshot shows how information is presented on the google glass screen looking through glass.
One can see that direct light makes it really hard to see the picture. (in the right corner)
This is the video where the screenshot was taken from
It is actually about a comming up google glass app for DJs
There is a great concept and pending patent how negative effects of direct light can be solved in future versions of augmented reality & informed reality glasses like google glass
More information on that at Active Anti-Glare concept for augmented reality glasses.
This is what the anti-glare technique is supposed to achieve
an every day glare situation without protection
The same situation with conventional sun-glasses: both contrast and colour suffer from darker glasses
With active anti-glare glasses: good visibility, contrast and colour due to darkening in only very small areas
There is a (bright) future for google glass
