Curator Notes

Google Glass is a product of Google[x], the “skunkworks” operation of the corporate giant. According to Google, the glasses are, “Designed for those who move” who want to “Be active,” “Explore [their] world,” and “Live lighter.” The device allows users to have current events such as weather and news reflected into their eyes, as well other information you would expect from a smartphone, like past phone calls or photos. The device can be controlled by either a touchpad on the frame or via voice command. Some privacy advocates have criticized the ability of Glass to record still and video imagery inconspicuously and without the knowledge of those being recorded.
