Cops Look to Google Glass For Surveillance

A few months ago, an officer for the Byron Police Department in Georgia made a routine traffic stop equipped with an unusual piece of technology: Google Glass.

The wearable computer allowed the officer to record everything he was seeing for future reference, and because it was also linked to the department's video system, it let his bosses back at the police station monitor how the traffic stop was going in real time.
