article imageSpain: Pervert films nudist bathers with home-made 'Google Glass'

By Anne Sewell     Aug 8, 2013 in World
Those with reservations about "Google Glass" might be right. On a Benalmádena nudist beach in southern Spain, a pervert was arrested for filming women, using a home-made version of the technology.
The cheeky voyeur, using a DIY version of Google Glass, was arrested by local police after a beach-goer noticed the man, wearing outlandish sunglasses and constantly adjusting them.
The angry nudist held down the suspect until police were on the scene.
When police questioned him, the 48-year-old man admitted that he had been filming naked women along the beach with what he called his “spy shades,” which had an adjustable lens in the middle of the frame.
The man was arrested for invasion of privacy, and police found a video camera, a regular camera, along with a pen drive and several memory cards in the man's beach bag.
He told the officers that he was on holiday in Benalmádena and was staying in a local hostel.
According to Diario Sur, this is not the first incident on a beach in the province. In July, local police in Málaga surprised a Chinese citizen who was taking photos of women and minors. That man apparently had more than two thousand images on the memory card of what was a normal camera.
However, the latest news comes as privacy concerns are voiced over the impending arrival of Google Glass.
There is concern over the issue of people being secretly filmed or photographed with the new wearable computer. However, Google tries to allay peoples' concerns by saying the new software requires users to give an explicit command such as “Glass, take a picture”. Apparently the device will also light up when the camera or video are activated.
There are currently Google Glass prototypes on sale locally in Spain for €1125 ($1500).
