Google tries (and fails) to convince us that Glass isn’t scary

Follow Wearable and Cyber Computing Report on WordPress.com

Faced with a lot of recent backlash for its wearable Glass headset, Google has published a list of dos and don’ts for its early Glass Explorers — aka, How To Not Be A Glasshole — and also set about debunking the top 10 Google Glass myths. Both lists highlight one of the biggest issues facing technology at the moment: A growing resistance from the non-technologist public, who are rightfully a bit scared about how hyper-advanced, almost magical technology will impact their society.

Ever since the first round of Glass headsets made their way to Explorers in June 2012, barely a week has gone by without the the press reporting on some kind of “Glasshole” story. These stories nearly always follow the same kind of pattern: Explorer wears Glass while going about his or her everyday life, and then gets into some kind of altercation by going somewhere or doing something that someone else finds objectionable. It’s usually pretty normal, obvious stuff: Wearing Glass while driving, wearing Glass in a locker room, wearing Glass in a counterculture punk bar, etc.
