Porn directors are planning to use Google Glass eyewear for X-rated films to explore the 'full potential' of the technology.

London - Porn directors are planning to use Google Glass eyewear for X-rated films to explore the “full potential” of the technology.

The adult film industry is said to be interested in using the specs for point-of-view shots in a “truly hands-free fashion” as opposed to having one hand on the camera.

Amateur producers are especially keen to get their hands on a pair as they shoot high-quality video and make it even easier to film your own porn movie.

Should Google Glass be taken up by the porn industry, it would prove embarrassing to Google.

Café owners, cinemas and strip clubs in the US have already announced they are banning the technology from their premises out of respect for customers’ privacy.

According to adult film industry website xbiz, however, the porn industry feels differently.

Google Glass costs $1 500 (R15 334) a pair and is on limited release to 2 000 people.

It will be more widely available later this year or in 2014.

Q Boyer, a spokesperson for porn film-makers Pink Visual, said: “To really know their full potential, we’ll need to get a pair to play around with, but we’re already dreaming up ways to use the glasses to get shots that just aren’t feasible using a traditional camera set-up.

“Obviously a device that allows you to shoot high-quality video in a truly hands-free fashion will make shooting point-of-view (POV) porn that much easier.”

Porn actress Alana Evans has already said it would spark a “huge drive” in POV filming.

And Missy Martinez, another porn actress, has said it could lead to a slew of “gonzo-style” movies from amateurs with no experience.

The warm embrace by the porn industry is in contrast to other businesses across the US.

Dave Meinert, the owner of the 5 Point Cafe in Seattle, has said the those wearing the specs will have to take them off if they want to come in. He has put up a sign on the wall which reads: “Respect our customers’ privacy as we’d expect them to respect yours.”

Cinemas have said they do not want the technology as people may be able to film new releases and distribute pirate copies.

Lap dance clubs said they would treat those wearing the internet-connected specs the same as anyone caught filming a stripper with a cameraphone – and would kick them out.

Google Glass has caused concern because it has a camera next to the wearer’s eye that can take photos or record video without a red light or a shutter sound to tell others that it is working

Casinos said they could help cheaters to win unfairly and cinemas said they could be used to illegally record films and sell pirate copies.

Google chairman Eric Schmidt once admitted that the aim with technology was to “go right up to the creepy line and not cross it”.

But the public clearly feels differently and in France those wearing Google Glass-style specs have been subjected to “cyber discrimination”.
