The UK is set to be the second country on the world (after the US) in which you can buy Google Glass. For a hefty £1,000 you will soon able able to purchase the prototype eye-wear. Initially it is being targeted to developers only, to hone its functionality for the final product, but soon everyone will be able to walk around with a 'hands-free smartphone'. 

But how will this revolutionary device affect other industries? Cinemas and theatres have already expressed concerns over its filming capabilities, and the Department of Transport are currently reviewing how it could detrimentally affect drivers. To be successful once fully launched, Google must surely find a way of making its device compatible with every aspect of daily life. Nick at RedBrick
