Google Glass hack sees sex app land to make your life "more awesome"

Want to spice up your sex life? There's a Google Glass app for that.

The salaciously titled Sex with Google Glass does just what its name suggests: Strap the spectacles onto your head, turn on the application, and, well, do your thing. All the while, Glass will record and stream the action.

Like any other Google Glass function, the app works with commands—specifically "OK Glass, it's time" when you want to start recording, and "OK Glass, pull out" to end.

Already in the throes of passion but want to change the mood? Say "OK Glass, the lights," or "play Marvin Gaye." For the really adventurous, ask the headset to "give me ideas."

"Having sex with Google Glass on brings a completely new perspective," the website said. "Experience sex like never before. Simply swipe to a new perspective. And enjoy the new view." And, connect your smartphone to find new angles around the room.

Want to perfect your technique later? The app saves your video for up to five hours before disappearing forever — an advantage over the classic leaked sex tape.

"We want to change the way people experience things," the Sex with Glass site said.

Few details have been revealed about the app, including its development team; according to British GQ, Sex with Glass was built during last month's Wearable Tech Hackathon in London.

The pool of Google Glass wearers remains small, and it is rare that you'll find a one-night stand staring back at you through a little screen mounted on their face. But this app does bring up the question of privacy and security—a question which the application addresses only by promising to delete the recording five hours later, no questions asked.

And while the app developers' intentions, presumably, are not to promote porn via Google Glass, it could run into trouble with the search giant manufacturer. In June, Google updated its Glass Platform Developer Policies to ban pornography-related applications.

"We don't allow Glassware content that contains nudity, graphic sex acts, or sexually explicit material," the Content Policies section reads. It could be argued, however, that Sex with Glass does not actually violate any of those rules.

Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The question remains: Who will use it? The free app is "coming soon," and interested Glass Explorers can sign up online for more details.
