New Technology

“For any new technology there is always controversy and there is always some fear associated with it. I think that’s the price of being first sometimes”

– Hugh Grant

Although this comes from an unexpected source, Hugh Grant relays what Glass has received from some of the general public, that they fear what new threats of privacy this technology could bring. Nonetheless, this quote is relatable to every new technology that has since been introduced to the general public such as camera phones and the same invasion of privacy they once threatened. The fact that the public now see camera phones as a way of everyday life proves that once Glass is introduced into the mainstream markets, the device may even become as normalised as the mobile phone.
