New Challenges for Wearable Privacy

According to a news article by Gizmodo Google has formally announced that it’s opening sales of Google Glass to everyone in the U.S. Even though the price ($1,500) will still detain some potential costumers from buying this promising new device, the permanent video record of humans in public spaces is a potential scenario that we will encounter in the next years. Google Glass therefore has several privacy implications on the people that are recorded by these devices.

This development highlights the need for privacy enhancing techniques that are reliable and easy to use. The P3F framework has the ability to provide such a usable and efficient countermeasure against contiuous video recording and mass surveillance.
