What does Google glass + porn spell? It spells a Google glasses porn film. If you guessed that then you were right.

 

The inevitable has certainly happened: porn stars James Deen and Andy San Dimas made a film with Google glass. In a thoroughly NSFW trailer, the pair use the glass' camera to capture video and see through each others' eyes in a reception room tryst — so is more than just recording.

Google might certainly not have wanted porn to be filmed on it’s Google glasses, but with this hotly anticipated (and mocked) eyewear-computer combination which is set to be released soon, we should now understand that where there is technology there will be porn.It's inevitable.

The film was sponsored by an adult app company, MiKandi. They chose well-known porn stars James Deen and Andy San Dimas to wear Google glasses whilst having sex. I have to admit the technique was a clever end-run around Google's ban on pornographic applications.

The trailer is a parody of everything you can imagine doing with a pair of futuristic glasses: turning on X-ray vision, accidentally making explicit Google searches, using a facial recognition database to look up relevant anatomical details about a passing stranger. Did you know that "glass" also rhymes with the name of a body part? I guess James Deen certainly does.

 

google-glass-2Fox News reports that Google has been strictly anti-porn, anti-nudity, and anti-profanity when it comes to its glasses. You can't search curse words on the glasses, you can't search for porn, and you can't go to porn sites. In fact, web browsing in general is pretty much limited.

 

"While developers cannot share the glass apps that serve sexually explicit content," says Mikandi's CEO Jesse Adams, "there doesn't seem to be any terms that prohibit users from shooting their own adult content.”

 

Google Glass has a built-in camera, email, video chat, and texting capabilities, so there's no way Google can squash your inner amateur pornographer if one actually wants to make and send a sexy video.

Given that the glasses have been in the wild and circulation for some time, I’m extremely doubtful that this is the first x-rated video made with it. It is, however, the first professionally-made one that one might be aware of, especially with the breakout star like Deen involved. The glasses themselves were apparently obtained from Motherboard's Arikia Millikan, who attended the shooting, and adult app company MiKandi — whose first attempt at working with Glass was abruptly stymied when Google pulled its "Tits and Glass" app after only a few hours.

Motherboard's Millikan says that watching video made on Glass is an experience which has the powerful ability to transport you to a different time and place. Certainly, the videos created on Google glasses can be watched on computers and smartphones, but Millikan says the real thrill in watching porn is watching the videos that were filmed with glass on glass itself. She further says that from the viewer's POV (point of view), the videos definitely feel very intimate and personal and it's a shame that porn apps are banned, so that other glass users can't experience that yet.

 

This porn film is certainly an interesting look into a possible future where today's point-of-view filmmakers abandon traditional cameras and simply place the devices on actors' heads. If glasses becomes as ubiquitous as Google hopes, it won't look like some Jurassic Park science fiction scene; it'll just be somebody wearing a pair of glasses.

Whilst the porn industry awaits this addition, I'm sure Google  doesn’t, as it has the potential to tarnish its brand image which it has carefully built.
