You do not want to be under surveillance by Google Glass owners? Get this new gadget to protect yourself.

The army of Google Glass owners is still quite small, but you can already make their life miserable if you encounter one. German artist and programmer Julian Oliver devised a small gadget that detects Google Glass on the local Wi-Fi. If it detects Glass, the device kicks it off the Wi-Fi.

Cyborg Unplug sniffs the air for these signatures, looking for devices its owner has selected to ban. If a banned device is discovered an alarm is triggered (LED, audio or message). Further, if that device is found to be connected to a network that Cyborg Unplug is trained to guard, a stream of special de-authentication packets are sent to disconnect it. It does this automatically, without any interaction required from its owner. 

The Cyborg Unplug has evolved out of Oliver's script that detects Google Glass on Wi-Fi networks and kicks it out. Julian Oliver's gadget is in the same spirit as the Stop the Cyborgs campaign.

The Cyborg Unplug will be available for pre-order on September 30. See this site for the details.
