Surely it is just a matter of time before Google Glass, or other similar walk-and-talk Internet browsers, add a pseudo X-ray feature?
The camera in the GOOG goggles could easily be tuned to infrared wavelengths that reveal body shape and other details beneath people's clothing. A simple 1000nm filter can reveal a lot and it's easy to adapt any type of video camera.
Would this be a killer feature? Or, could it kill the product category? There's the real possibility of a cultural yuck factor towards GOOG Glass wearers, since no one knows if they are videoing you in infrared.
