If you were concerned that wearing Google Glass wasn’t going to make you look quite scary enough, Reddit users fodawim (via Gizmodo) discovered some code in the MyGlass Android companion app that allows a user to take a photo by winking …


Google Glass has a sensor used to detect whether the device is being worn (highlighted in the main photo above). It’s assumed that this sensor would be used to detect a wink, though it’s not yet known how the system would distinguish a wink from a blink.

The first Explorer’s Edition of the gadget were distributed last week.
