Google Glass

It appears that not only consumers are getting excited for the possibilities with Google Glass (and wearables in general), but also the Dubai police force. According to a report over on Gulf News, the force will soon use Google Glass to issue fines on the spot to motorists, as well as quickly identify wanted vehicles. The headwear is currently undergoing trials by the Dubai Police Smart Services Department.

Google Glass is a handy tool, which could be utilized effectively in this case. The device is capable of taking photos, recording video, accessing the web and providing directions, to name but a few functions. Photos captured by officers would be uploaded into the central database immediately, while other apps would aid in daily police tasks (including the detection of wanted vehicles).

The aim is to make the Dubai police stations smart, while providing officers the tools to become 'smart police officers'. You too can pick up Google Glass if you happen to have $1,500 lying around.
