    Here’s the one time I hope there’s tracking available on the hardware/software so they can definitively say if an application was or wasn’t running at a specific point in time. Otherwise, I don’t see how a judge could say the glasses were or weren’t being operated prior to her looking at the officer.

    Take the Google glasses off when driving, then no problem. Until such time that there is a way to prove that there was not an application running.

    I understand that some autos have “displays” that show the car’s data (fuel mileage, speed) on the windshield in front of the driver. Not sure these glasses are much different other than more information.

      I think the point is that Google glasses are more distracting in that they can come on (getting messages) rather than an constant display that you would have to look at to read (like Odometer, gas, etc.)

    Probably wont have to worry about anyone over 45 being distracted by this. My arms are to short to see anything now on paper.

    Suddenly, they came on when she looked at the officer…
    but not when looking up at the mirror, or around at traffic? Fishy.
