Google Glass Code of Conduct Revealed

Google has issued a set of instructions as to the use of Google Glass. This instruction manual of sorts will be a code of conduct that will get revealed to the public so that Google’s worst fears do not come true. It’s obvious that Google wants its moon-shot to land right on target and not miss its goal by a wide margin.

Google Glass Code of Conduct Revealed

Google Glass is a new form of wearable technology that is about to revolutionize the way the world works. While it is a source of excitement for many, the problems and teething troubles that will come with its introduction into the general environment are too many to be listed here. 

Suffice it to say that from driving accidents to breach of privacy to show-off behavior, the hurdles along the way are plenty. One way in which Google has tried to lessen the impact of this novel form of technical gadget is to offer a code of conduct

Like Hemingway’s “Grace under Pressure” dictum, Google’s owner’s guidance kit will help anyone unfamiliar with this marvel of innovative wonderment. 

The Explorers who are currently road-testing Google Glass have given some feedback to the Big G. On the basis of this advice, Google has a few guidelines and hints it wants its users to take to heart:

• The device is for the true exploration of existence. 

• Like an auxiliary gadget, Google Glass allows you to take your manual dexterity to the maximum in terms of activity analysis. 

• It will let you take pictures of people or places (with the consent of those people or those in charge of those places). 

• A lock system will shut out any intruders or outsiders from trying to monkey with your Google Glass.

• In the capacity of a Google Glass Explorer you have the right to report back to the concerned authorities at Google regarding any issues you may be having with the brand new technology. 

• Google Glass is not everything. Life, family and friends not to mention the world at large are much more important sources of inspiration. Don’t become an addict.  

• The device is under no circumstances to be utilized while engaging in full contact sports. 

• Respect other people enough to answer their questions and queries about the wearable technology you have wrapped around your head.
