Wearable computing is the gift of the 21st century. First it was smart watches. Now it is turning its giant face to smart glasses. Google has been teasing and tempting the world with updates about their smart glasses for a while now. But it is also true that the company has won beyond expectation in grabbing the attention of the world with their smart glasses.

Though there are a numerous plus points in Google Glasses, it is not free from drawbacks. There are rumours that the Glass will be full of advertisements and pop up windows, making the bearer’s sight cloudy or rather distracted. In the United States, arguments are going on to ban wearing the Glasses while driving, which is quite sensible an action, we should say.
And also the other thing to be kept in mind is that the Google Glass has a camera that records anything and everything the bearer sees. So, this could be disgusting for the bearer and for others. Nobody likes to be recorded in a camera full time, right?
