Google Glass Perfect for Porn?

Unless you live under a rock, or only use the internet for porn (that’s whats its for), you’ve probably heard something about Google’s most recent project to get a lot of hype: Google Glass.

Google Glass is a head-mounted augmented reality display. The main intended purpose being a hands free display of information that most Smartphone users currently have available, and allowing the user to interact with the internet via voice commands similar to the iPhone feature Siri. Google Glass is still in the development stages, but recently at the Google I/O 2012 they showed off some prototypes with an impressive demonstration where skydivers, abseilers and mountain bikers wore the glasses and live streamed their point of view.

Of course this has some serious potential for the porn industry. A device that allows you to shoot high-quality video in a truly hands-free fashion will make shooting POV porn that much easier. The interesting thing is that porn has historically made technology. Look at the VHS vs. Beta war: porn sided with VHS and it won. The same thing has happened through the ages with various technologies, so that probably means that if porn adopts Google Glass it’ll get a massive kick in its forward-looking pants. Where porn goes, others tend to follow. We could see non-porn movie studios picking up Google Glass too.

Until then were going to have to enjoy our current POV porn.
