A group of Congress members have sent a letter to Google seeking answers to privacy and data concerns caused by Google Glass.

The letter (.pdf), addressed to CEO Larry Page, was sent by eight members of Congress led by U.S. Rep. Joe Barton, Texas. The members of the Congressional bipartisan Privacy Caucus say they are concerned about possible misuse of information gathered by Google's new product, and whether Google Glass will "infringe on the privacy of the average American."
