      Google Glass Driving Citation Dismissed by Court

      Christian Science Monitor reports a California woman ticketed for driving with Google Glass has had her citation dismissed by a court commissioner in San Diego. 

      The woman, Cecilia Abadie, says CSM, was pulled over last October and issued a ticket for what a California highway patrolman described as "Driving with monitor visible to driver (Google Glass)." According to Reuters, yesterday San Diego Court Commissioner John Blair threw out the citation, saying that there was no proof that the video function on the headset was turned on. 

      Google Glass is currently being tested by 10,000 "Explorers", add CSM, a group that includes people such as Ms. Abadie. A wider launch of the "smart" device – which has a heads-up display built into the frame – is expected to launch at some point in 2014.
