Ireland’s data privacy watchdog has expressed concerns over new smart glasses, produced by Facebook in partnership with Ray-Ban, stating it’s asked the tech giant whether the device can properly notify people they’re being filmed.

The Irish Data Privacy Commissioner (DPC) voiced its concerns over the glasses on Friday. The smart glasses, manufactured by Facebook in cooperation with Ray-Ban, were unveiled by the tech giant last week. The device drew not only the media’s eye, but also the close attention of authorities in a number of countries.

Italy’s watchdog Garante Privacy asked the DPC to solicit some answers from the tech giant on whether the device is actually in compliance with privacy laws. The Irish privacy watchdog is the EU’s leading body in dealing with Facebook, as the European operation of the tech giant is headquartered in Dublin. (RT)
