Google Releases Behavior Guidelines to Glass Explorers

Posted by: Maxine Brimmer (2 years, 8 months ago)

Poor, misunderstood Glass Explorers, if they’re not being kicked out of restaurants or ticketed for wearing their high-tech smartglasses, then they’re being insulted by half the population of the internet. It seems like Google has been paying attention to the backlash against their wearable devices and they’re offering a few pointers to socially-struggling Explorers.

New technology always makes certain people uncomfortable, but the generally negative reaction towards Google Glass users is hard to ignore. Branded ‘Glassholes’ by internet pundits, Glass users are quickly picking up a negative reputation with both the public and the press, and Google can hardly ignore that.

This week, Google released a guide to help its Glass Explorers know how to behave and what to expect when wearing the smartspecs. Detailing the do’s and don’ts of representing Google Glass to the rest of the population, Google advises its Explorers not to “be creepy” or “Glass-out”, as well as to expect attention from people they meet while wearing the device.
