How Google Glass Is Evolving As It Heads For Release To Developers 140

hypnosec writes "Babak Parviz, the founder and head of Project Glass at Google, has revealed that the feature set of Google Glass and state of apps is still in flux and that there is a lot of testing going on at the moment. In an interview with IEEE Spectrum, Parviz provided insights into Project Glass, the reasons behind having such a gadget and what's there for the project in near future. Parviz said that they are trying out new ideas and ways in which the platform can be used while also trying to make the platform more robust. There is no specific feature set that Google has been talking about and 'It is still in flux.'" My favorite question / answer pair: "IEEE Spectrum: What kind of business model is associated with Google Glass? Babak Parviz: This is still being worked on, but we are quite interested in providing the hardware."

    Not really, since the government can (and does) order wiretaps, the google glass now allows the wiretapper
    to see what the target sees.

    Wiretapping is strictly for governments (well, and criminals).

    I think I'd notice the sudden appearance of a pair of glasses on my face, seeing as how I don't wear them.

    In the sci fi book I mentioned in a different post I recall adults, the older the more likely, constantly recording young people to deter vandalism, robberies, muggings, etc. Things devolved to the point where the smallest infraction of a rule led to a video being submitted to the police.

    That's not sci fi, that's Japan.
