Google Glass Porn Is Here, Whether You Like It Or Not

Adult app store MiKandi has produced what may the world's first professionally-shot porn film in which the actors are wearing Google Glass. The film represents the latest in an ongoing lovefest between porn and tech.

What's the Latest Development?


Undeterred by Google's ban on porn apps for its Glass device, MiKandi has produced a film in which a couple -- played by porn superstars James Deen and Andy San Dimas -- have sex while wearing Glass. The trailer, available on YouTube, shows Deen borrowing a pair from a woman on an elevator and then entering an office where San Dimas sits behind a desk. MiKandi CEO Jesse Adams says that with the first-person POV offered by Glass, the actors had to pay closer attention to their movements. For example: "There is no zoom function, so zooming in literally means putting your face up close in the action."

What's the Big Idea?

After Google enacted the ban, MiKandi voluntarily pulled its own Android-based app, which allowed users to shoot, share, and even vote on porn videos, and provided a new version that complied with the rules. The app has not been accepted by Google, but writer Michael Grothaus says it's really only a matter of time before "the connection between flirting apps, dating apps, hookup-finders, and virtual sex-bots [begin] to coalesce, creating new, strange and shockingly intimate ways to fool around with other people -- whether they’re in the same room or not."

Surprising Science

While the demise of the dinosaurs gets more attention as far as mass extinctions go, an even more disastrous event called "the Great Dying” or the “End-Permian Extinction” happened on Earth prior to that. Now scientists discovered how this cataclysm, which took place about 250 million years ago, managed to kill off more than 90 percent of all life on the planet.

Why we're so self-critical of ourselves after meeting someone new

A new study discovers the “liking gap” — the difference between how we view others we’re meeting for the first time, and the way we think they’re seeing us.

Surprising Science

We tend to be defensive socially. When we meet new people, we’re often concerned with how we’re coming off. Our anxiety causes us to be so concerned with the impression we’re creating that we fail to notice that the same is true of the other person as well. A new study led by Erica J. Boothby, published on September 5 in Psychological Science, reveals how people tend to like us more in first encounters than we’d ever suspect.

NASA launches ICESat-2 into orbit to track ice changes in Antarctica and Greenland

Using advanced laser technology, scientists at NASA will track global changes in ice with greater accuracy.

Firing three pairs of laser beams 10,000 times per second, the ICESat-2 satellite will measure how long it takes for faint reflections to bounce back from ground and sea ice, allowing scientists to measure the thickness, elevation and extent of global ice

Leaving from Vandenberg Air Force base in California this coming Saturday, at 8:46 a.m. ET, the Ice, Cloud, and Land Elevation Satellite-2 — or, the "ICESat-2" — is perched atop a United Launch Alliance Delta II rocket, and when it assumes its orbit, it will study ice layers at Earth's poles, using its only payload, the Advance Topographic Laser Altimeter System (ATLAS).
