A California woman made history last week when she became the first person in the world to be ticketed for driving while wearing Google Glass.
Google Glass is a wearable computer with a head-mounted optical display. If you’re not familiar with this emerging technological device, you might want to watch this demonstration video on YouTube to see how it works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4EvNxWhskf8 Google Glass looks like a pair of funky glasses that are missing the left lens and have a small screen and controls mounted near the right eye and earpiece. After activating the computer by saying “OK, Glass” or tilting your head back, you can, through voice commands, take a picture, record a video, send a message, receive messages, check the weather, get directions, and look up information, all while you’re doing something else . . . like driving. Talk about distraction!
