    That will interface with bluetooth to your droid and track everything you do, make all of your private info public for police to instantly access, and secretly submit your retinal scan to the national database. Sounds like fun! There is a video about this on the TED talks. Maybe I'll find that and post it...

    I'm going to get one to test. See if we can intercept what it sends (tries to) while on my closed network.
    In theory, its a pretty cool idea... the problem is that it's from 'do no evil' Google

    Cool technology we discussed a while back, if we can keep it from being used for malicious endeavors against folks. There is a second video in the link that is hilarious!!

    Look to the future, where this will be replaced by a cybernetic implant.

    Strip joints are banning them?
    No Google glass for me:)


    When preparing for your Las Vegas strip club romp, make sure to bring those bandz, but leave the Google Glass at home. NBC News reports that clubs are now prohibiting patrons from wearing the face computers inside, because the tiny cameras allow for covert creepshotting–a strip club no-no.
    Peter Feinstein, the managing partner of Sapphires Gentlemen’s Club, told NBC that his upstanding establishment already prohibits sneaky clubgoers from taking pictures on their cellphones. Since Glass contains a recording device, it’s no exception. Security officials are asking people to check-in the geeky headgear. If they refuse to do so, it’s going to be an early night.
    “If they don’t want to check it, we’d be happy to give them a limo ride back to their hotel,

    A First? Driver Gets Ticket for Wearing Google Glass

    It's a tech milestone of sorts. A woman in San Diego has gotten what might be the first ticket for driving while wearing Google Glass. When she got pulled over speeding, the officer also cited her for "Driving with Monitor visible to Driver (Google Glass)," reports Engadget. Cecilia Abadie posted the ticket on Google+ and reached out to anyone who might be able to provide legal advice. The short version seems to be that these kinds of laws remain very much in flux. The Consumerist notes that California bars people from driving if a video screen in the car is visible to them, though it makes exceptions for GPS devices and the like. Would Google Glass qualify? What if it's not on? It's all unclear. The Huffington Post reports that Delaware and West Virginia have legislation in the works to ban drivers from wearing Google Glass, but adds, "It may be time for the courts to decide."
