‘Don’t make a spectacle in our glasses’


作者:mandyaa              发布时间:2014-02-20 15:47:49
FOR some, Google Glass provides a glimpse into the future, in the form of hi-tech spectacles that send information straight to the eyes. To others, it has created a bunch of "glassholes" — owners too distracted by their smartglasses to pay attention to others, or those who use them in "creepy" ways, such as recording people without their knowledge.

In an effort to combat the anti-social behaviour exhibited by some, Google has created an etiquette guide for owners of the glasses, which can record video and browse the web, displaying information through a tiny screen suspended before the wearer's right eye.

The company released guidelines yesterday for members of its "Explorer" program, the few thousand people who have paid $A1670 for a prototype of the glasses, which are a cross between a smartphone and a pair of glasses. It is advised that they ask permission before recording scenes, be polite when members of the public ask about the device and "don't ... be creepy or rude (aka, a 'Glasshole')".

Google makes serious points, but in a lighthearted tone. It suggests that wearers avoid "glass-out" — staring for too long at the small video screen within the frames. "If you find yourself staring off into the prism for long periods of time, you're probably looking pretty weird to the people around you," the company says. "So don't read War and Peace on Glass." It also suggests that people should not do high-impact sports wearing the device. "Waterskiing, bull-riding or cage-fighting with Glass are probably not good ideas," it suggests.

The advice is also a response to real concerns, with evidence that the public and the authorities are turning against the technology. Google warned that "standing alone in the corner of a room staring at people while recording them through Glass is not going to win you any friends". It also suggested that the device will draw the attention and ire of others, so "be patient and explain that Glass has a lot of the same features as a mobile phone".

Last year, a restaurant owner in Seattle kicked out a diner who refused to take off his Google Glass, saying that the device was invasive. Last month, a case was dismissed against a motorist in California who had been given a ticket for wearing the glasses while driving.

In a recent interview with The Times, Astro Teller, head of Google X, the department that develops futuristic technologies, said that the glasses would fail unless people were comfortable around them. "I would like to think with any product, including Google Glass, that if it's actually impeding our social interactions, it shouldn't succeed," he said.

Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google, admitted last year to privacy concerns over the glasses. He told the BBC: "It's obviously not appropriate to wear these glasses in situations where recording is not correct. And, indeed, you have this problem already with phones."
