The most fascinating new tech gadget of this spring appears to undoubtably be Google Glass.The futuristic and perhaps ridiculous-looking computer glasses could also add a new layer to our ongoing privacy debate though. Data storage with the product is cloud based, and thus, fairly easy for someone who knows what they’re doing to hack. The device itself is also, according to at least one expert, pretty easy to hack, giving an intruder access to the glass owner's information and everything they see in realime.

The concerns regarding Google Glass and the possible access hackers could have to someone's entire life represents a broader discussion that was debated on "Real News" Friday. Is the insane advancement of smart-technology represented by Google Glass too far ahead for law enforcement to keep up with as it relates to balancing privacy rights and security issues? Watch a clip below from Friday's show with guest Declan McCullagh of Cnet.
