Google Glass has plenty of folks a little scared of being recorded in secret, but saying "OK Glass" and the recording light are kind of a dead giveaway. But a rooted pair of specs? Those could be a creeper's dream.
In a chat with ZDNet, Google Glass jailbreaker Saurik relayed some slightly concerning info about what rooted Google Glass can do. The recording light, as it turns out, isn't exactly a light; instead it's a reflection of activity in the little eye-prism. Still, it's noticeable. But because no light is hardwired in—as they are on many laptop webcams for exactly this reason—the whole thing can be circumvented in software, making surreptitious recording a breeze.
