Google Glass may be able to take pictures merely by winking
A curious code jockey did some digging and shared some insight on Reddit about an interesting (or creepy) function that Glass might be capable of doing, “wink” gestures.
Okay, so wink gestures could actually have a purpose, like using winks to advance through an email or browser page. It can also serve to take a photo as noted by “EYE_GESTURES_WINK_TAKE_PHOTO.” Well look at that! The guy who found it thought that idea was kind of creepy.
The code also indicates that other tasks may be programmed to operate upon a wink command as well. To that end, we will be very impressed if Glass can tell the differences in winking along with regular eye activity. Just remember to smile for the camera
and hopefully you will not get something in your eye in the process.

Yep, i might buy one.
I can just look at that girl's nice butt and wink and take a photo of it without having the risk of being accused as a pervert compared to holding my phone and pointing it towards someone.

I saw someone wearing a pair of these while I was out in downtown San Francisco and a woman was wearing a pair and she kept blinking in an unnatural way and her eyes were rolling around as if on a bad trip. My friend thought she was a looney in weird glasses until I pointed out that they were the GG.

A "wink" to take a photo will probably just mean you have to hold your eye shut for half a second or something, rather than the rapid open and closing of a blink. Cool idea I think.

Blind people can wink... They just can't see

Now you will look less like a creep, instead of shouting "OK glass take a picture of that hot chick" you can just wink her and snap a picture :3
