Google Glass considered by porn directors for those POV shots

Google Glass considered by porn directors for those POV shots
Not that you would need to manufacture a reason to want Google Glass, but Google has started a series of videos called Google Glass Sessions that show you some of the reasons that you might want the device. As we told you the other day, the debut Sessions video showed how the technology becomes useful when you are raising a newborn and want to share every new, amazing thing that your baby is doing. You can quickly send off video and pictures to your parents, in laws and friends.

The view from Google Glass

The view from Google Glass

Of course, there are so many different ways to use Google Glass that haven't even been thought of yet. Take Pink Visual's Quentin Boyer who told PC Mag that a device which allows you to shoot high quality video without tying up your hands, would have plenty of possible roles in the adult entertainment industry. The device apparently would be a big help when it comes to filming POV (point-of-view) shots for adult movies. Boyer says he's getting one "sooner rather than later".

MiKandi is an Android app that is a portal for adult entertainment (read porn). A spokesman for the site says that directors are already thinking of shots that could be taken with Google Glass that traditional video cameras couldn't get. Certainly Google had this in mind as a use for the device when it was nothing more than pen marks on a napkin, right? Besides using Google Glass as a camera for adult flicks, MiKandi sees its usefulness on dates, such as finding an old tweet from your date discussing his/her favorite wine.

Google I/O attendees can pre-order the device for $1,500 although it won't be available until early 2013. A model for consumers will be ready by 2014.

We would lose California, Washington, Oregon, parts of Montana, parts of Idaho, Nevada, and Arizona. They would probably be held at the Rockies and by that time, an organized counterattack would be launched and most young men will have been drafted and trained. Another factor to consider is gorilla warfare fought behind the lines by heavily armed civilians in Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. It is unknown what side Bigfoots will be on.

I was giving a realistic idea of what would happen if the 300 million members of the Chinese military tried to invade.

There are already several glasses/camera devices out there for sale, for way cheaper, if they just wanted to make a POV movie.
