(June 6, 2014) If you're (rightfully) creeped out knowing that anyone wearing Google Glass could be recording your every move, or, even more intrusively, live-streaming it over the Internet, Berlin-based, New Zealand-born artist Julian Oliver has you covered. He has devised a computer program that essentially shuts down the technology remotely, reports Wired.
When one of Oliver's friends recently held an art opening, where he noticed some Google Glass-wearing visitors, and became concerned that they could be secretly recording the evening and the artwork without permission. Oliver was quick to respond to his friend's complaint: In under one hour, he created a quick and dirty script called Glasshole.shthat blocks Google Glass users from accessing wireless Internet.
The code uses a mini-computer to send a de-authorization command that kicks Google Glass offline.
