There is no doubt that technology is advancing, and quickly. One of the more recent advances in technology today is Google Glass; the headband of a pair of glasses with a small transparent block positioned above and to the right of your right eye. This is the screen. It's aim is to be like a smartphone that you never have to take out of your pocket. It can take a picture, take video, share pictures and video, even live video, through social media, give the user directions, allow the user to speak to send a message, “ask whatever’s on your mind,” translate your voice, and give information on flight times at the airport.

Will Google glass be beneficial to our society or will it create negative problems that we already deal with now, like texting while driving or using your phone at inappropriate times? Will it solve these issues?
