AbstractGoogle Glass is a new wearable technology that offers a voice-activated visual experience that allows wearers, inter alia, to take snapshots, share or record live videos, see GPS overlays, get answers to spoken questions, and perceive written translations words spoken by the wearer. In the not-too-distant future, technology that is now only wearable could become implantable. These technologies would mediate an enormous part of our life experience by controlling "all that we see and hear" in ways that could be enormously valuable and enormously disruptive.
