Everyone knows that using a mobile phone while driving is very dangerous. In many parts of the world (such as Britain), this is completely illegal. But can using Google Glass avoid this danger?
The paper found that those who use Google Glass on the road can hardly maintain their lane discipline. When participants used Google Glass headsets for multitasking, it was difficult to maintain a safe distance from the surrounding vehicles.
The company also said that due to the voice control of the device, users using Google Glass are more confident that they can avoid risks. Ironically, this means that users are more likely to be distracted.
Although this discovery is a bit outdated, head-mounted devices may eventually sweep the consumer market. Magic Leap has completed approximately $2.3 billion in financing, Google and Alibaba jointly created an augmented reality headset, and rumors that Apple will launch its own smart glasses are also spreading.
However, before this type of equipment enters the mainstream market, it is very important that we endeavor to study how secure they are.
