If you’re concerned that Google Glass will invade your privacy and snoop on you in public, there is a solution for that. The new device Cyborg Unplug was designed especially for detecting drones, surveillance cameras and other mobile technology like Google Glass that are trying to access the Wi-Fi personal signal. The Cyborg Unplug will basically boot them off of your Wi-Fi connection. The makers of this interesting device say that Cyborg Unplug is a “wireless anti-surveillance system”.
The makers also stated that “Whether business office, restaurant, school or nightclub: it’s your territory and your rules, so make it harder for those that seek to abuse it.” This sounds really interesting but do we really need this or is it just one of the many useless devices that have appeared recently? If you know that you have neighbors owning Google Glass or any other surveillance devices, than you probably need this.
A cool feature that the Cyborg Unplug device comes with is the All Out Mode, which basically allows you to turn off all wireless networks, not just yours. The company says that they don’t recommend doing that because it’s illegal. Then why put such a feature on your product if one cannot use it? We still haven’t figured that out yet.
Cyborg Unplug keeps Google Glass away
The company states on their official website that “We take no responsibility for the trouble you get yourself into if you choose to deploy your Cyborg Unplug in this mode.”
They also say that the Cyborg Unplug cannot stop anyone from record or photograph someone with their devices but can only keep the data from being streamed forward. That seems fair enough. You can also select which device you can stop, for example, if you’re not bothered by Google Glass you can select it as a non threat and shut down only drones and microphones.
