Google Glass is already creating paranoia



Few people have worn or even seen Google Glass, but early reviews have made businesses and government officials wary.

Already, Google Glass has already been banned by a Seattle dive bar and in some Las Vegas casinos. West Virginia legislators are trying to make it illegal to wear Glass while driving, The New York Times reports.

Google Glass is still in a prototype phase and only a few thousand people have gotten their hands on the unfinished product. It’s currently a set of frames with a screen that appears above the right eye’s line of vision and connects to the Internet. With voice commands and motions, Glass can take photos or video, search the internet, conduct a Google Hangout or send messages. It’s like seeing Apple’s Siri before your eyes.
