Google Glass will be part of our future… but the future of Google Glass is not what Google sees it as. Google has been fighting the idea that Glass users are a bunch of narcissistic self-involved jerks, often slapped with the label “Glasshole”, but to be honest, apps like Sex With Glass really, really don’t help that perception.
Your Very Own Sex Tape
Sex with Glass is, essentially, an app to make your very own sex tape. Everyone involved, although the app assumes two, records the sex as it happens, and if you want to involve your phone in the fun, you can do that as well. In theory, the video is edited together by Glass and then destroyed after five hours, you know, because after sex, there’s nothing like grabbing your smartphone and watching yourself have sex.
Also, we’re skeptical the video is actually erased; Snapchat made similar promises and look what happened there.
We’d Be Witty Here, But, Really, Ew.
We’re not knocking people who want to tape themselves in bed: Hey, it’s harmless, although we’d recommend against using anything connected to the Internet to do it. But we really have to wonder why nobody involved in this, at any point, came up for air and said aloud: “You know, maybe creating a sex tape app that requires everyone involved to wear a computer on their face criticized heavily for preventing intimacy and emotional contact is a bad idea? No? OK, back to coding then.”
Available… Well, Soon
Perhaps less than surprisingly, Sex with Glass is still somewhat limited in availability since it’s pretty hard to find Google Glass in the first place, although you can sign up for an “iPhone experience” in the meantime. Really, though, if you’re going to do this, why not go all out? Strap on a GoPro and really go for it.
