Google Glass Gets Its First Porn App

as reported by Samantha Murphy of TIME (TiA pick of the day and we guessed this was to be)
The first porn app came to Google Glass on Monday, called — in true tongue-in-cheek form — “Tits and Glass.”

Adult company MiKandi is behind the first adult-centric app intended for the high-tech specs, allowing users to watch videos and photos filmed with Google Glass. The app is available for download now, but those without the device can still browse and interact on the site [link is NSFW; proceed with caution].

“Unlike other hands-free recording devices, wearing Glass is easy and familiar,” MiKandi co-founder Jennifer McEwen told Mashable. “Because of that, you can forget about the technology on your head and be in the moment. The result is an authentic look at the wearer’s experiences.”

 

 

The company is also interested in making the experience more intimate for adults.

“Besides point-of-view content, we’re interested in Glass’ potential to facilitate two-way adult interaction. For example, between long-distance couples, cam models and fans or strangers.”

Although the porn industry has been fast to adopt emerging technology, McEwen said it has actually slowed in terms of innovation within the last few years.

“The old adage that porn drives tech is sadly no longer true,” she said. “Over the last decade, adult companies have seen themselves locked out of more and more technologies and services — the latest being mobile applications. Adopting new technology is costly and time consuming, so it’s no wonder why some the industry have become risk adverse.”

Not all adult companies see the value of implementing time and resources into embracing the new technology.

“The reaction to Google Glass has been 50/50 between companies such as MiKandi, who see the potential of this new device and plan to develop products for it, and those who prefer to wait and see,” McEwen said. “We’re excited at the possibilities Glass holds for more interactive applications as the technology matures.”

The World Through Google Glass

Google Glass POV

The virtual screen that Google Glass shows you through the prism appears to be a display floating a few feet in front of you. Although it’s obviously very tiny, Google says it’s the equivalent of a 25-inch screen seen from 8 feet away.

The message screen “ok glass” is the most common one you see, since it activates whenever you tap the side or tilt your head up. The screen lets you know Glass is on and actively listening to your voice.
