I really like the idea behind the Google Glass project but from the beginning I was concerned about the future of privacy, if these devices are around us. Mark Hurst wrote an excellent article about this topic.
Now, I know the response: “I’m recorded by security cameras all day, it doesn’t bother me, what’s the difference?” Hear me out – I’m not done. What makes Glass so unique is that it’s a Google project. And Google has the capacity to combine Glass with other technologies it owns.
The most important Google Glass experience is not the user experience – it’s the experience of everyone else. The experience of being a citizen, in public, is about to change.
That’s the point.
