Google Glass will undoubtedly change how people consume information, share content on the Internet, and interact with the world around them.
But one of the biggest issues to consider, while the concept of Glass is still relatively new to people, is privacy, James Bareham recently wrote in a forum on The Verge.
By now, we’re all used to people taking photos and shooting videos on their mobile devices.
With a mobile phone or tablet, it’s obvious if someone is recording because they have to hold up the device. But with Glass, it will be nearly impossible to know whether or not someone is taking photos or capturing video.
“The issue is not whether Glass users WILL be shooting surreptitiously; the issue is that they CAN,” Bareham writes. “And that’s potentially a real problem; wearing Google Glass could be banned from many public and government places.”
