Toops Scoops: Google Glasses Raise Risky Issues

This week's news feeds were looking like some steampunk dream of the future come true. I'm not even going to get into the flying car discussion -- with its auto, homeowners and third-party liability concerns, it's a bigger issue for another time -- but when the news broke about the testing of Google's augmented reality glasses, I felt compelled to comment.

I'm all for better living through technology, but just consider for a moment the liability exposures when you combine someone wearing Google goggles and driving the flying car -- while cruising for chicks with the Girls Around Me app. Oh, that's right -- he won't need something as archaic as a "mobile application" when he has GPS embedded in his Ray-Bans -- or, soon enough, directly into his brain.
