Google Glass is still very much in the testing stages. It’s slowly rolling out to more and more ‘explorers,’ early adopters who are testing features and spreading the word.

This is true for even the smallest of facial tics, which would make it easier to determine how someone is really feeling, or whether or not they’re being honest.¬†Of course facial recognition software is prohibited by Google, but this program is being tested as a proof of concept in a private beta.
