Google Glass Gets Its Inevitable Sex App

Are you feeling lucky?
It's a characteristic of technology more immutable than Moore's Law: Every tool gets used for porn sooner rather than later. So it's time to add Google Glass to the ranks of the Internet, the Betamax cassette tape, and the colored dust smeared by hand on a cave wall. If it exists, it will be used for porn.
According to PandoDaily (itself a kind of tech porn outlet, right?), British developers in London have created Sex with Glass. The software allows the wearer to view themselves in real time (which we don't know about, exactly. It's not like Google Glass wearers are noted for their narcissism). It also allows you to watch yourself hump from an iPhone set up as a camera, suggests new positions, and records footage that self-destructs after five hours (and we're sure there's no way at all to hack around that). Perhaps the best feature: When you are all finished using Sex with Glass, you turn off the app by saying (or shouting in ecstasy), "OK Glass, pull out." If that doesn't get your partner off, we can't help you at all.
Glass has already been put to some prurient uses. In June, Tits and Glass became the first app to let you watch porn on the device, including the work of James Deen, who became the first porn star to record himself having sex soon after.
And, no Glass won't help you find someone to have sex with. Yet. But we bet that Grindr is working on it. Heck, it will probably be a plot point sometime in the second season of Looking.
