Google Glass

Google just gained a royal supporter as the Prince of Wales was recently seen donning a pair of Google Glass on his tour of Canada. Prince Charles tried out Google's wearable eyewear when he visited the tech hub known as Innovation Alley.

Along with the Glass hardware, Charles also got to try out an app called VisualSpection that helps energy workers inspect and report problems in the field.

According to UK's Daily Mail, Charles may be the first royal to use or test Google Glass. It's still unclear what the royal thinks of Google Glass or what his opinions are on wearable technology.

More like:
Prince Charles: Ok, Glass; How do I get away with killing a monarch?
Glass: I have found 3 assassins in your area.
