Google Glass gives first porn app the axe

The porn of the future may already be a thing of the past, as all sexually explicit material has been banned from Google Glass.

On Monday morning, the first pornography app for Google Glass was launched. The adult app, cheekily titled "T**s and Glass," allows users to upload and "upvote" racy content before their very eyes. But that didn't sit well with the tech giant.

Google told CBSNews.com that their content policy was changed last week, and sent us this statement: "Our policies make it clear that Glass does not allow Glassware content that contains nudity, graphic sex acts, or sexually explicit material. Any Glassware that violates this policy will be blocked from appearing on Glass." According to app maker MiKandi, that policy wasn't in place when the adult app seller released their new application.

"T**s and Glass" allows glass users to record their own pornographic content and upload it to the app for a first-person point of view porn experience.

"[The program] is a relatively simple application," Jen McEwen, MiKandi's co-founder, told TechNewsDaily. "The primary function is that Google Glass users can upload and share their POV videos and POV photos through the application. Other users can comment, vote up and share that content with the community." Although anyone with a Google account can access the app via its website, though only glass users get the full-on interactive experience.

Nearly 10,000 people visited T***AndGlass.com on Monday, and about a dozen Glass owners have signed up for the app, according to a blog post by MiKandi CEO Jesse Adams. MiKandi claims to be the No. 1 adult app store in the world and is a prolific developer for android. And so if you're looking for some desire-fulfilling content on your mobile device, you can bet there's an app for that -- even if it's not on Google Glass.

"When we first picked up our [Google Glass] device, we were very careful to comb through all of Google's terms, policies and developers' agreement to make sure we were playing within their rules. That was important to us to play in Google's boundaries," MiKandi's blog post read as of Tuesday. "Even last week as we were gearing up to make the announcement, we took a look the agreement and there was no mention again of a ban on adult content. We were not notified of any changes and still haven't been notified by Google. We also double checked our e-mails to see if any notifications of policy changes were announced, but we haven't found any such e-mails."

The ban came three days after Google also banned facial recognition apps. While sex on the specs has been outlawed -- and we can't say we didn't see it coming -- MiKandi isn't giving up yet. The company says it will to comply with the new rules, and is planning on revising the app so that it somehow doesn't include any forbidden content.

"Although the app is still live and people are using it, at this point we must make changes to the app in order to comply with the new policies. Expect to see changes to the application tomorrow," Adams wrote.

Google Glass is still in beta mode and is not expected to go on sale to the general public until late 2013 or early next year.
