The excitement surrounding Google Glass has been tempered by concerns regarding the device's potential impact on personal privacy. Nevertheless, the device remains one of the hottest topics in the field of wearable computing, with a constant stream of photos and videos from users and new Glass apps from developers setting the stage for a major mainstream debut sometime in 2014.
But behind the scenes, Google has also been working to make the device an integral part of the entertainment industry through a little-known program designed to put Glass in the hands of top tier film students.
According to the AP, the program loaned three sets of Glass to five film schools to experiment with and report back with observations and video work. The schools in the program include UCLA, the American Film Institute, the California Institute of the Arts, the Rhode Island School of Design, and the University of Southern California.
