First arrest captured on Google Glass
July 8, 2013
On July 4th, documentary filmmaker named Chris Barrett captured the first fight and subsequent arrest using the Google Glass extended video recording option on the Jersey Shore boardwalk, Barrett told Venture Beat.
“This video is proof that Google Glass will change citizen journalism forever,” Barrett claims.
“That’s nothing we haven’t seen before caught on ‘tape’ by a videocamera or a mobile phone camera, but the fact that Google Glass is a wearable device that, especially at night and in a crowd, might just look like a pair of fashion eyeglasses means that video capture — surveillance, if you will — is easier than ever,” says VB.
“Which is exactly what has legislators from West Virginia, bars in Seattle, and casinos in Las Vegas worried.”
