Porn and six other things you can't do with Google Glass

Will a clampdown on Google Glass functions hurt its viability?

By  

West Virginia, State Rep. Gary G. Howell (R) introduced a bill that would ban drivers from wearing Google Glass behind the wheel. Howell said a head-mounted display would distract a driver. This one is a no brainer and I imagine bans on texing while driving would apply to Google Glass in other states as well.

Can't share or resell Google Glass

At least with the beta developers Google Glass Explorer Edition you aren't allowed to share or sell your headwear. Google explains: “You may not resell, loan, transfer, or give your device to any other person. If you resell, loan, transfer, or give your device to any other person without Google’s authorization, Google reserves the right to deactivate the device, and neither you nor the unauthorized person using the device will be entitled to any refund, product support, or product warranty.”

No Hate

Google has banned violence, bullying, and hate speech from the type of content permitted via Google Glass. Depictions of gratuitous violence are not allowed and neither is " the promotion of hatred toward groups of people based on their race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity."

Can't buy a pair

Nope, you can't buy a pair of Google Glasses yet. The developers explorer program is closed and consumer aren't expected to be able to buy a pair until 2014.
