Google Glass is getting some love at Google I/O as well. New applications have been released - Facebook, Twitter, Evernote, Elle, Tumblr, and CNN. Perhaps more interesting: the newly announced Google Glass Developer Kit will allow offline applications and direct hardware access - great for hacking and expanding Glass' potential. This kit will really allow hackers to put Glass through its paces.

Facebook Might be useful, if they do it correctly. I'd love to do facial recognition with graph search to augment/fix my memory.

If Glass could identify the face and send it to facebook to see who they are and how I would know them, it would be worth the cost of the device just for that.

Hello Glass, who is that woman in the corner?

Glass: that is Esmeralda Vasquez. She is the younger sister of your cousin's ex girlfriend. You last were at the same event two years ago.


That is the non creepy version. You can imagine the creep factor, if I was a creepier person using publicly available info from her Facebook to identify her, her likes, dislikes, relationship status, phone number, address, etc.
