Well then, that was fast. Considering the way Google Glass works it was to be expected that soon it would be used for some dirty applications. After all, you can shoot video in realtime all in first person. It doesn’t take long to brainstorm some rather unorthodox uses for such technology.

MiKandi Co-founder Jennifer McEwen confirmed to ZDNet that they are currently developing a pornographic application for Google Glass that could be available as early as “this week.” As one would expect, McEwen explicitly talks about the broad use of Google Glass as a device for shooting and watching pornography. One of the biggest caveats is that you can watch porn “hands-free,” with Google Glass. You don’t need to be a genius to understand why that’s interesting.

We’re experimenting with the features of Glass. From our initial use of the device, photo and video recording is more powerful than we expected.

Obviously, Glass is perfect for shooting POV video, so we’re experimenting with that first. But what’s really interesting about Glass is that it’s not just a hands free camera. It can receive and send data, so there are a lot of interesting interactions that we want to explore.

Being hands-free and hassle-free is a simple but big difference Glass has over other similar devices. It’s so easy and familiar to wear, that from a shooter’s perspective it feels like you’re recording with your own eyes. Because it feels so natural, you can forget about the technology and just be in the moment.

On top of that, with Glass you can share and interact with fans and followers, allowing them intimate access to your experiences. It’s like being John Malkovich where you’re viewing the world through someone else’s eyes.

Of course, MiKandi also released this charming little teaser clip to show off what they’re working on. Be warned, this is certainly NSFW.

MiKandi is not the only company to jump on the Google Glass bandwagon. Kink.com CEO released a statement shortly after the product launched that it would “change porn forever.” Then again, no applications or software has released yet to take advantage of Glass’ rather unique feature-set.

It’s possible that MiKandi will be allowing users to upload their own videos but nothing has been mentioned thus far. It also remains to be seen how Google will handle apps like this for their beloved platform. They have already shown strict restrictions on advertisements for the platform, so it’s possible they will actively move against porn applications. The beauty of open source software though, is that you can do whatever you want.

Are you for or against porn applications on Google Glass? Please just remember to keep it clean people.
