Man diagnosed with Google Glass addiction
Doctors from the Naval Medical Center San Diego have reported what they say is the first case of Internet addiction disorder (IAD) involving the Google Glass. IAD is the problematic use of online video games, computer use and mobile handheld devices.
“While not officially a clinical diagnosis according to the most recent version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), individuals with IAD manifest severe emotional, social, and mental dysfunction in multiple areas of daily activities due to their problematic use of technology and the internet,” the doctors wrote in their report.
According to the doctors, the patient was being treated at the Navy’s Substance Abuse and Recovery Program for alcohol, but the Glass addiction proved more severe. He became significantly frustrated and irritable when he was not able to use his Google Glass and would tap his temple area with his forefinger regardless if he was wearing the device or not.
