Will Google Glass be successful or just a novelty?
Google Glass is fascinating. It seems to be a case of life imitating science fiction. This wearable computer allows users to take pictures or record video through the lens of their glasses with a simple voice command.
Nearly everything is recorded and posted online already, so Google Glass is simply the next step. Yet the all-seeing product raises serious questions about privacy.
“In recent years we’ve become accustomed to hidden cameras: From hood-mounted police cameras that captured Reese Witherspoon’s recent arrest to the retail store surveillance cameras that provided images of the suspected Boston Marathon bombers.”
The New York Times reports that the West Virginia state legislature is about to consider a bill to prohibit use of the glasses while driving. Private establishments are also being proactive: Some Las Vegas casinos and a bar in Seattle have announced Google Glass bans.

Google Glass can go places that static cameras and cop cams can’t.
That’s troubling. Yet we all know that innovation is hard to halt.
Besides, this technology will no doubt be embraced by members of the Facebook Generation who have eagerly given up much of their privacy in exchange for instant online gratification.
Google Glass is coming. Get ready for your close-up.
