I’ve seen many articles on line regarding the evil of using Google Glass while driving. I noted, though, a couple of applications which could change people’s minds. One application is one that shows your speed. Ask a fighter pilot whether it is better to have your instruments on a heads up display or needing to glance in the cockpit to see them. Another application is one that detects you are falling asleep at the wheel and wakes you up. Ask a state trooper how many accidents they have investigated where the cause was falling asleep at the wheel.

Most technologies can be used and abused. If you legislate to prohibit the technology to control the abusers, you eliminate the uses as well. Please be careful with the legislation.
