Though such a device coming to fruition is a technological breakthrough, there are many out there who are not really excited about wearable tech that can be affixed right onto the human body and can transmit private words to a mobile device. Furthermore, there is some concern that such a device is owned by Google, who has been recently identified as a NSA cohort.
