Google’s Larry Page talks bathroom Glass use

Google Glass privacy concerns are not exactly a new topic. We have seen countless issues raised and even some locations placing a ban on using Glass.

That app has since seen some updates, however at the present time it is still sporting the beta tag. Putting the regular Android app to the side though, it looks like Sherpa has set their sights on Google Glass.

This app is called MedRef for Glass and as implied by the name -- this one is aimed at the medical profession.
