Google Forbids All Fun Google Glass Apps

Google Glass is the most unreleased controversial gadget ever. Mainstream adoption is highly questionable because of privacy and general usability. It is though inspiring lots of applications that we only knew from Sci-Fi movies. We already covered a story that an adult app maker plans apps for Google Glass . Another application that made headlines is the idea of implementing facial recognition in Google Glass. This would make you see people like Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator right away.

The problem with these exciting Google Glass apps is that Google is not allowing them. In the Google Glass developer policies the company explicitly says that facial and voice recognition is not allowed on Google Glass. Also not allowed are sexually explicit material.

These policies are of course not preventing such apps to be developed. Google Glass is already hacked  and we look at a similar parallel app world like on the iPhone. This issue could break Google Glass in the future. Governments might take action and prevent the use of the product in public places.

When Google introduced Google Glass, the wearable display only worked with Android phones and tablets. It took some time, but last December Google created a MyGlass companion app for iOS, allowing iPhone owners to get most of the same functionality from Glass as Android users. That’s not likely going to happen with Android Wear, however. The first clue was when Dave Singleton, Google’s Android Engineering Director, shared more Android Wear ...

How do you make a computer that people will want to wear on their face? “You have to make it light,” says Isabelle Olsson, the lead designer of Google Glass, the computer-equipped eyewear. “You can’t expect people to wear goggles all day long.” Over years of trial and error, Olsson guided Glass through hundreds of bulky prototypes to its current sleek (if not necessarily stylish) look. Here’s how Google’s computer went from goggles to Glass. 2010: The first G ...

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
