Porn Industry could be ‘eyeing’ Google Glass for POV films

I”m still wondering if people are really ready to wear Google Glasses on a regular basis, but until we find out all the uses for it, it’s hard to make that determination. One use case just might be the porn industry for what’s called point of view (POV) films. Quentin Boyer from adult firm Pink Visual said, “The style of porn known as ‘point of view’ (‘POV’ for short) has been a popular type of content for quite a while now. Obviously, a device that allows you to shoot high quality video in a truly hands-free fashion will make shooting POV porn that much easier.”

No Pink Visual wasn’t at Google I/O so they didn’t have the ability to pre-order one of those bad boys for $1,500, but let’s face it, they have the bucks to buy one off the early adopters. Boyer went on to say, “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.”

On the other hand, Pink does distribute their Android apps through an app store called MiKandi. It just happens that MiKandi was at I/O and ordered the glasses, but they don’t see an immediate use for porn. They’re thinking that it might be great for dating apps.

“A wearable computer such as Glass can provide a wealth of useful information and interaction during a date. For instance, when looking at a wine list, it might find an old tweet from your partner praising a particular wine,” the spokesman said in an email.

I wonder if the porn industry could create a short supply during the 2014 launch.
