Google has made an ambitious bet of making Google Glass, the tiny computer that sits on top of your eye, a consumer product, but is having a hard time convincing the general public about its utility. Google Glass wearers have in fact been asked to leave restaurants, theatres and been harassed and even attacked.
Since Glass lets users take photos and videos without the person in front being aware, it understandably raises a number of privacy concerns, which results in them being told to either remove the Glass or leave places like restaurants and theatres. The Daily Show’s video takes this situation forward, by showing a number of Glass users alleging discrimination against them.
Here’s the video:
Apple CEO Tim Cook has publicly said that the company considers wearable technology an area of “profound” interest, but that Google Glass doesn’t have a broad appeal. Apple is of course said to release its own wearable product — the iWatch — in October this year with a focus on health and fitness.
