Online British travel company Holidaysplease thinks Google Glass just might enhance your next vacation. That's why it's offering to loan customers the wearable computer ... with one stiff caveat: No running around nudist beaches with them on, please.
The company that books vacation packages is likely one of the first to come up with etiquette rules for Google Glass, which debuted in Britain last week.
Holidaysplease makes the free offer to members of its loyalty program who want to try out the new technology that you can use to take pictures and videos, check flight times, access maps and just about anything else you can do on a mobile device.
Along with the offer, the company's responsible user policy posted on its website asks guests to "not use the glasses to record nudity, content of a sexual nature, violence or other content likely to offend."
It also asks them to respect the privacy of others and to avoid filming people who can be easily identified without their permission.
The loaners are only available to its British clientele, and it's one pair of glasses per booking, not per person. Still, it's a nice perk for those who want to see how the new technology works.
Travelers who want to take advantage of the Google Glass offer also are asked to take out extra travel insurance in case anything happens to them.
