You may or may not be aware of Google’s new invention they are about to unveil called Google Glass. Defined by Wikipedia as a wearable computer with an optical head-mounted display, Google Glass displays information in a smartphone-like hands-free format, which can interact with the Internet via natural language voice commands. This revolutionary new pair of glasses will retail for around $1,500.
But Google Glass won’t be accepted and welcome everywhere you go. For one it already has been banned in Las Vegas and Atlantic City casinos because of the fear of cheating. Many classrooms are also banning them for that same reason.
Movie theaters already have piracy issues with people bringing in video cameras into the theater, taping a film and profiting from it. They are sure to ban glasses that have recording devices on them as well.
While texting and driving is already prohibited in many states, legislation is already being laid out in many states including Arizona and West Virginia to prevent drivers from “glassing and driving”. The last thing a driver needs to be distracted with is a virtual computer screen inches from their face while behind the wheel.
Hospital’s are also a place that is going to prohibit Google Glass as for a fear of privacy concerns and HIPAA laws.
Google Glass is definitely revolutionary and has a lot of potential in many aspects of life including solving crimes and getting found if lost. It though, isn’t for everywhere.
