Project Google Glass introduces augmented reality in our daily lives by integrating a connected microcomputer to users through a lens. This has generated a lot of attention from the media, much of it negative especially on the issue of privacy. By means of a standardized questionnaire, our research investigated aspects such as frequency and use of social media, trust, privacy concerns, and psychological aspects to see if such variables correlated with an anticipated acceptance or refusal of this technology. The survey was administered to over 1900 young adults attending universities in 5 countries: Canada, Chile, Spain, Tunisia and the U.S.A..Descriptive,correlational and factor analyses were used for our analysis. Perspectives linked to the diffusion of innovations, HCI, digital identity, and cultural theory literature will be discussed.
