HIGHLAND PARK, NJ — Over the past few weeks, strangers have begun stopping high school computer science teacher Chaim Cohen on the street. A few accuse him of recording them without their knowledge. Even fewer blame him for all of society’s ills.
But many just want an answer to a simple question: Is he wearing Google Glass?
Cohen is among the approximately 2,000 developers throughout the US who are trying out the search giant’s much-hyped wearable computer, a futuristic Internet-connected gadget that users wear like a pair of glasses and enables them to stream information from the Web directly into their field of vision.
Using voice commands and hand gestures, Google Glass users can take pictures, record videos, get directions and send messages.
