It is not the people who use the glasses it is the unsuspecting smuck that they record? He has the problem. It is akin to being a peeping Tom.

I heard they were like those x-ray glasses advertised in the back of comic books and would let the wearer see though clothes. At least that's the rumor.......that I just started......

Right, nobody is forced to use it- The problem is if a user decides to record/snap photos of me without my knowledge, where is my choice? Bad, bad, bad.

I agree. The tech is intriguing, but the privacy is a concern. Bad enough you have people trying to look up women's skirts or ogling little kids, now they can they have the ability to get a video and put a face to it all the while being less conspicuous in the process?
I shudder at the day I catch someone looking at my girl, sister, mother etc. they may mean no harm, but how do I know they aren't uploading something to put on a "funny or die" site to make fun of or worse. Think of the embarrassment people are going to go through now that those types of "embarrassing moments caught on tape" will be easier than ever.

Just about every piece of tech on the planet has a camera, or two cameras, or a way to add a camera. Why not people too.

I'm waiting to hear I'm not getting a job because they think I am hiding a Facebook account from them. I don't have one.

So, we've arrived at the point where if you don't have a FB account, people assume you must be hiding something. Interesting...

I do know places that if one starts taking pictures with a cell phone or the like they better ask permission or own a cell phone that bounces well. Their is no doubt in my mind that those Google glasses must meet the same standards in such places.
