Google’s (GOOG) augmented-reality eyewear, Google Glass, could be the most exciting new consumer technology to hit the market since Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone. But it also could turn out to be the next Segway Human Transporter. Like the overhyped Segway, Google Glass raises societal and legal concerns about its use. After Segway debuted, questions quickly arose about whether it was legal to drive the self-balancing scooter on roads and sidewalks. That ended up hindering adoption of the Segway. Now consider Google Glass. If cellphones are illegal for drivers to use in many places because of distracted driving, what about Google Glass and their eye-level computer display? Maybe that’s one reason why Google is also working on self-driving cars.
