Can Google Glass reduce crime rates?


So, at the Google I/O keynote, they demo-ed Google Glass in the most awesome way possible. This is definitely worth a look.

It’s all very impressive, and mashable has already written about how it could possibly change sports broadcast.

But what about the possibility of lowering crime rates, especially those of snatch thefts? It definitely makes it harder to snatch both a bag AND the person’s glasses. What if that person is in the middle of a hangout and gets his bag AND glasses stolen. The victim’s hangout pals will then know in real time, and may even capture the perp’s face before the glasses gets smashed!

Imagine you’re in the middle of a bank robbery. A touch or wink (whatever the UI requires) and you’re transmitting live footage!

Stomp is gonna love this.
