For all that's been said about the tremendous innovations of Google Glass, privacy concerns have only grown louder since the project's introduction last year. As Google's Explorer Edition continues its staggered rollout, Congress is finally seeking answers. The Congressional Bi-Partisan Privacy Caucus today [url="http://joebarton.house.gov/images/GoogleGlassLtr_051613.pdf"]wrote a letter to CEO Larry Page[/url] asking the CEO to clear up once and for all "whether this new technology could infringe on the privacy of the average American."

"Because Google Glass has not yet been released and we are uncertain of Google's plans to incorporate privacy protections into the device," the letter reads, "there are still a number of unanswered questions that we share." The first question revolves around a sore spot in Google's history: the unauthorized collection of personal data from Wi-Fi networks by the company's Street View cars

Really dont see the problem here. Glass gets is connectivity from the phone and cell phones are everywhere. Really no different from a cell phone and its obvious you are wearing a camera on your head.

And please keep the topic clean. TY.

You mean rooting...and the same thing can and does happen to phones and cameras. People get caught taking up skirt shots and shots of women in private areas. Nothing new.

You have that already with camera phones...and I'm pretty sure those are much easier to use (for the purpose you posted) than Google Glasses.

As to Congresses question: no, this does not infringe on privacy.

And how do you propose you are going to get an upskirt shot with Google Glasses, as opposed to a camera phone...?

Cameras in glasses are nothing new. They have been around for a long time. And most other ones, the camera is tiny and hidden. It is quite obvious you re wearing Google Glasses.

Probably. You have some creep in a store or restaurant with Google Glass pointing it at women's cleavages then uploading photos to the web.

Or. Men's bathrooms. Creeps walking in wearing Google Glass video recording of guys taking a leak right next to them - which they do now too but have to hide the phones etc.

If you're wearing Google Glass on your face, your head will have to be turned so that you're staring at the woman's cleavage, or at the man's ****. There's nothing stealthy about it.

You can buy cheaper spy equipment that would be way more effective and less easily noticed.

I do not see Google Glass being any different than any one having a cell phone just quicker to get to taking a picture rather than having to pull your device out.

People are going to come up to you and say, "You'd better not be fcuking recording me!"

I agree. If you are out in public you lose your privacy.

It's going to be a bit obvious people are doing that when they start sticking their heads up ladies skirts...

Also, for the consumer version, just put an external LED on it that lights up when recording.

There's already a light on it that lights up when you're recording, I'm not sure what else Google can do.

You are standing at an ATM in public - do you lose the right to privacy over your PIN ?

That argument is not valid, there is no such thing as "public" in the sense that people here keep describing it. All land can essentially be considered private, it just has a different owner. What you consider "public land" is actually "government land", and if congress (government) wants people on government land (public) to have privacy, then we should be happy with that. I sure am.

Disclosure: I am undecided on Google Glass, but I think it these are important discussions to have.
