This paper discusses the different issues that arise in conjunction with the development of smart glasses, e.g., Google Glass. It is a conceptual and theoretical essay that discusses whether smart glasses will be used and how they might be used. It demonstrates how different problems need to be addressed in the near future, e.g., problems with social interaction, psychological issues, technology development, legal and eye issues and questions of retail. It concludes by outlining the pros and… Expand
Smart-Glasses: Exposing and Elucidating the Ethical Issues
