Abstract [en]

Google introduced Google Glass in 2012. Even though this wearable augmented reality device has only been introduced to the public in some kind of testing (beta) mode, it has managed to draw the attention of the public, partially because of the possibilities that such a device can provide and partially because of the dystopian scenarios regarding privacy. This article seeks to identify the challenges related to privacy arising from the use of this type of devices. Furthermore, it examines the existing legal framework with regards to protection of privacy in the two main markets of these devices, namely the USA and EU, and recommends some solutions that could be used as a starting point to augment the protection of privacy and at the same time give space to the new technologies to be further developed.
