Who knew that living in a city where geeks are supposed to be tolerated would be so unpleasant? It was very frustrating for Cecilia Abadie who was given a ticket for a hi-tech reason: wearing Google Glass.
According to Abadie, a cop stopped her for wearing Google Glass while driving. So the officer knows it’s a wearable device? Looks like it, because he wrote it down clear. The driver then posted a photo of the ticket on Google+ venting her frustrations.
This incident happened in California. It’s not clear to the Glass Explorers that such issue would come up. So we ask why is it street illegal again? It’s just a pair of glasses, right? Well, a very hi-tech one at that.
