New Google Glass surveillance trick really shows why we need alternatives to passwords

Researchers at the University of Massachusetts Lowell have discovered a way to steal iPad passwords with help of camera-equipped devices, Wired reports, including Google Glass, the iPhone 5s, a Samsung smartwatch and a Logitech webcam. To make this work, though, you’ll also need to install software onto your device that takes into account the tablet’s geometric position and is able to track the shadows of finger taps on the screen.

Elderly people react to Google Glass in this hilarious video

Young people seem to be having enough trouble wrapping their heads around the possibility that devices like Google Glass may someday be ubiquitous, so you can guess how the elderly feel. Imagine having grown up in a world where personal computing didn’t exist, and then seeing a device like Google Glass hit the market.

What we’ve all been waiting for: Seizure-inducing smartglasses that can send Morse code

What we’ve all been waiting for: Seizure-inducing smartglasses that can send Morse code

If you were looking for glasses that are more obnoxious looking than Google Glass, we may have found just what you’re looking for. Spotted by Engadget at CNET Japan’s Live 2014 event, Matilde’s Fun’iki glasses light up the lenses in different colors to send you alerts about new notifications. The glasses can also emit a beep. But that’s not all. If you want to send a message in Morse code (who doesn’t?), you can type in the text into an app and the glasses will then flash accordingly. The glasses also feature different modes which light up for different environments, ranging from “disco” and “party” to “relax.” More →

Watch The Daily Show absolutely rip Google Glass users apart

Google hates it when you say this, but Google Glass has a major image problem. People using the headset are routinely thrown out of public places including movie theaters and cafes, and the most common question many Glass users get asked by non-Glass wearers is whether they’re secretly filming everyone. In case you needed further proof that there’s a major stigma surrounding Glass, then you need to watch a new Daily Show clip in which correspondent Jason Jones absolutely rips into Google Glass users who are complaining that people are being mean to them when they see them wearing a computerized headset on their faces.

Google Glass Rifle Shooting

This is an awesome Google Glass feature you’ll hopefully never have to use

This is an awesome Google Glass feature you’ll hopefully never have to use

Google’s Google Glass smart eyewear has many fans but also many haters, and the device will be available to more and more users in the future, sporting all sorts of interesting, and possibly creepy features. Hopefully, though, most users won’t have the chance to actually try out a Glass-based augmented technology currently in testing by TrackingPoint. The solution lets users shoot a rifle at targets around the corner. While it’s certainly interesting, it’s also potentially dangerous for civilians. And for the military or law enforcement personnel, Glass doesn’t yet offer the kind of battery life that would make it a useful solution in many scenarios. More →

Google exec inadvertently explains why Glass is flopping

In the two years since its public debut, Google Glass has gone from being seen as a potentially game-changing wearable computer to being a hopelessly dorky piece of technology that even diehard Google fans are having a hard time stomaching. Over at CNN, Google X exec Astro Teller explains the reasons that Google decided to create Google Glass in the first place and he inadvertently shows us why this iteration of Glass is falling flat on its face so far.

Roger Federer dons Google Glass to show what it’s like having a ball fly toward you at 120 mph

Tennis fans might marvel at the quick reaction times of their favorite players, especially since most professional serves for men’s tennis average between 120 and 130 miles per hour. Now tennis legend Roger Federer has done a cool new promotion with Google in which he wears Google Glass to give us a first-hand look at what it’s like having a ball fly toward you at an insanely fast speed. It’s an almost certain bet that Federer will not be allowed to bring Glass with him to Wimbledon next month, but from the footage Google showed it doesn’t look as through the headset impeded his vision in any way or distracted him while playing. You can check out the full video of Federer playing tennis while wearing Google Glass below. More →

The Dubai police force’s newest weapon: Google Glass

Drivers in Dubai will need to be even more cautious in the future as the local police force plans to start using Google Glass to track down lawbreaking drivers and stolen vehicles. Gulf News reports that the Dubai Police Smart Services Department is currently testing the wearable tech to see how useful it could be for traffic enforcement. Given the device’s ability to access the Internet, give directions and take photos and video, it could potentially replace computers in police vehicles in the coming years. More →

Why Is Google Glass Bad

How Google completely botched the Google Glass rollout

How Google completely botched the Google Glass rollout

Google Glass has had a rough year in the court of public opinion. Not only has the device become the fodder of jokes for late-night comedians, but even some of its high-profile early adopters have started bashing it with gleeful abandon. Forbes has written a good autopsy of all the mistakes that Google has made when rolling out Glass to the general public and it gives some pretty convincing answers about why something that generated massive media hype when it was first teased two years ago is now seen as the next Segway.
