Altogether sent eight questions related to privacy issues, how to explain the way in which Glass meets data protection laws that privacy insurance have been incorporated into the device, what kind of data Google collects through it, with whom you can share that information, and if Google has done some analysis of the risks to the privacy of the device.

Also, ask to see a demonstration of the device and the opportunity to see themselves.

Google said through a statement that is still in an early stage of testing Glass and ethical issues that accompany it. “It’s very early, and we are thinking very carefully how we design Glass, because new technology always brings new problems,” says the company.
