Speaking of privacy, Google also aggravated privacy pundits everywhere this year, despite its seemingly best intentions. To begin with, Google’s announcement of Project Glass ignited fiery debates in the tech world. It aims to develop an augmented reality head-mounted┬ádisplay (like a pair of glasses) that would also allow users to interact with the internet through voice commands. However, an amazing concept video showing a user video-chatting, checking appointments and accessing maps in teal-time via the smart glasses caused much bewilderment. The concerns were legitimate, since the technology could be easily misused if proper safeguards were not put in place. Even Google has admitted
that with the massive amount of visual data that would be streamed through these glasses, the risk of privacy violation would increase. The
‘disconnect’ between your virtual self and your real self would be eliminated, leading to a much riskier internet life. A stranger gaining access to someone’s smart spectacles could potentially know every aspect of his/her daily life, which is quite a daunting thought. While, seemingly, the
security world may not be ready to try Google Glasses yet, the internet giant should be commended for inviting feedback and thinking about security before the actual product launch. Google Glasses
