Google Glass gets someone attacked, again

Poor Kyle Russell. His Google Glass eyepiece was destroyed along the streets of San Francisco, coincidentally, as he was covering the Google protests happening.

He claims a woman saw what he was wearing, yelled "Glass!" and proceeded to snatch and then smash his precious eyewear.

Sounds a bit crazy, but Russell now has a piece of mangled eyewear to show for what happened. Sadly the Glass which costs roughly US$1500 (RM4875) has been rendered unusable. Russell says he does not think the woman was one of those protesting against Google, but likely had her own motivations, whatever they may be.

With wearable tech becoming more mainstream, are we doomed to having random strangers accost us for using tech that discomfits them?
