Google Glasses — and Implcations for the Justice System

The New York Times Bits Blog has a post on Google’s plans to start selling “Google Glasses” by the end of the year.

You wear these glasses on your head and they feed you information about your environment from the various Google databases.

So, you are in the courtroom and the camera and database recognize the judge and show you recent articles about her or him, the judicial election results, and the campaign contribution lists?

Or perhaps the case results summary for that judge?

Or how about getting info about the cop who stops you on the highway? (There have been many attempts to keep police information secret because of safety concerns.)

Certainly you should be able to sit in the courtroom and see the docket, and filed papers in the current case.

Navigation, by the way, is by head movements.

Apple is supposedly focusing instead on wrist devices.
