Some feel that the Google Glass can cause serious privacy issue. For instance, if you are going to meet a person who uses a Google Glass, he or she may snap your photos without your consent. It allows you to take a photo by a simple action of winking. Still it is a very interesting gadget that works in sync with your smartphone. However, the camera onboard can be misused which can lead to undesirable consequences.
Some feel that Google Glass will show up alerts right in front of your eyes making it difficult to see elsewhere. However, Google Glass designers have confirmed that the device will not disturb user’s vision. Whenever you receive a new message or any other alert, it will not pop-up in front of your eyes but it will play a sound. And then users can check the alerts as an when they want. Fact looking and seeing are totally different physical actions and people wrongly come to state that the Google Glass can disturb their attention.
What swings in the favor of Google Glass is that it surely helps in saving your time. For example, if you are communicating with someone, you may be so engrossed that you won’t be able to any other work. Reading and typing consumes a lot of time. People spend more time than usual on looking at the phone while texting. Google Glass and the devices that come with voice-assistant features allow users to simultaneously interact on your phone and still be alert with what’s happening around you.
Recently, it has come to light that Google Glass comes with a feature i.e. constant listening mode. No matter what app the user is using on the device, it will continue to listen constantly. As of now, Google Glass can only understand the OK Glass command and that too from the homescreen. Again, the feature can be misused to secretly record audio.
The major concern still associated with the Google Glass is that the wearer will be able to secretly record videos and snap photos. The worrisome fact has made analysts come to think that the wearer can misuse the device by shooting point-of-view porn. Lee Roy Myers from WoodRocket.com claims that the device can shoot high quality POV videos with a complete different viewing experience. Sounds scary? What makes this device ideal for the porn industry is that it’s hands-free which can reduce distractions while recording porn.
