The New York City Police Department’s massive and controversial intelligence and analytics unit is evaluating whether Google Glass is a decent fit for investigating terrorists and helping cops lock up bad guys, VentureBeat has learned. The department recently received several pairs of the modernist-looking specs to test out.
“We signed up, got a few pairs of the Google glasses, and we’re trying them out, seeing if they have any value in investigations, mostly for patrol purposes,” a ranking New York City law enforcement official told VentureBeat.
“We’re looking at them, you know, seeing how they work.”
The glasses are currently only available through Google’s Glass Explorer program, in which people who interested in acquiring them first apply and then receive notification from Google on whether it accepts or denies their application. Respondents who get the green light must pay $1,500 for the privilege.

One wonders what would have happened in the Third Reich had such technology. What Hitler and the Nazis could have done. Not to worry, it's all in the hands of the Globalist Bankers, and the Fascists in Government who Bailout Banks, when they should have filed for bankruptcy. You have a crooked media that covers for the Corruption. The NYPD using this means one Point for Big Brother and Zero for Nationalists who believe in Privacy, The Bill of Rights and the Constitution. Know the meaning of the Hegelian Dialectic.
