(The Hosting News) – Just how much privacy will the innovative device known as Google Glass afford users? That particular question was recently on the minds of U.S. lawmakers as eight congressmen addressed concerns via a letter.
The move comes from the Congressional privacy caucus.
“We are curious whether this new technology could infringe on the privacy of the average American,” stated the letter addressed to Google CEO Larry Page, according to the BBC.
Google was previously criticized in the past for its use of unencrypted wireless networks for data collection – something that made news headlines in 2010.
Project director Steve Lee previously signaled that Google seriously took privacy into account when developing the project.
Google Glass isn’t available for general use, instead being available to select users whom Google is hoping will help develop apps for the emerging platform.
