google-glass-9Like any new technology, Google Glass is redrawing social boundaries. But in order to boost revenues from all this innovation, Google will need to get society comfortable with a different set of values than many communities currently hold dear. For example, there are still people who believe that they have a right to privacy. If they go out drinking, they may not want photographs of their inebriated condition available to the world via Twitter and Facebook.

Forbes magazine has taken an in-depth look at some the ethical issues raised by this new product.
