Some Warn Google Glass Could Degrade Artistic Standards…Of Porn

Google Glass

If you haven’t heard it before, pornography has driven a good amount of technological development in recent years, or so some argue. Though porn doesn’t seem to be the driving force behind its development, it seems Google Glass will also find itself taken up as a tool for the new drug.

The International Business Times has a story on how those who make porn are already considering how it will change their industry.

“To really know their full potential, we’ll need to get a pair to play around with, but we’re already dreaming up ways to use the glasses to get shots (sex-related and otherwise) that just aren’t feasible using a traditional camera setup,” said Q Boyer, spokesperson for Pink Visual, an adult film company.

Though some are imagining how the new device could be used to break new ground, not everyone in the industry is optimistic:

But there are fears that amateur porn makers will cash in on the device, using them to make home-made videos, and cutting out the industry professionals. Porn actress Missy Martinez warned that Google Glass could lead to a rash of ‘gonzo-style’ movies from amateurs who lack artistic values or integrity.

Putting the porn industry out of business would be a great thing, but it seems the concern here is that the industry could be hurt by porn-making becoming more main-stream – which is worse.
