So by this point most of us have heard of these new Google Glasses that Google is testing, right? If not, Google Glasses are a pair of “smart” glasses that when worn can actually do much of what a smartphone can do. Some people even think that at some point in the future Google Glasses may replace our smartphones. Don’t believe me? Check out the video below.
Cool, right? Hmmm…maybe not. Google Glasses are kind of scary, too. They allow the person wearing the glasses to photograph or video all they see! Also, Google makes money through advertisements. Many people are concerned that Google has been pooling data from its users across many Google products such as Gmail and Google+ to sell to advertisers. Can you imagine how much more Google could know about you if you wear their Google Glasses? Theoretically, everywhere you go and everything you see could be documented! All personal information about us collected through the Google Glasses could then be sold to advertisers! Yikes! I don’t know about you, but I’d like to hold on to my privacy as much as I can in an increasingly digital world.
