Google Glass blocking script

30 May, 2014

Berlin artist Julian Oliver creates, a program which can detect a character string unique to the MAC addresses of Glass devices and block WiFi access. Oliver came up with the program after hearing that a fellow artist friend was disturbed by guests who showed up to his art exhibit wearing Glass. The device offers no way for artists to know if the Glass-wearing visitors are photographing, recording, or even live-streaming their work.

To say ‘I don’t want to be filmed’ at a restaurant, at a party, or playing with your kids is perfectly OK. But how do you do that when you don’t even know if a device is recording? This steps up the game. It’s taking a jammer-like approach.
