Google Glass – Life’s Russian Dashcam

I just love those Russian Dashcam compilations on YouTube. And more importantly, seems like every driver in Russia has one too! Makes for a never ending supply of these videos.

Every other day there seems to be a new story about some hapless dude being a victim of a false rape accusation. It just sucks to be in that position because it’s her word against his. It is scenarios like this where a video footage would come super handy.

With wearable computing all the rage in 2013, prices likely to become more affordable down the line, storage prices following the same trend, it’s just a matter of time before most of us have a Google Glass type device always switched on and recording. I, for one, don’t think it’s such a bad idea. Screw privacy. I’d rather be protected from some inebriated person filing a false claim that about privacy. So come on Google Glass and competitors, let’s make those devices affordable.
