The ability to take photos and videos via Glass’ rim-mounted camera isn’t new, but winking to take a picture certainly is. Interestingly, Google patented the ability to recognize facial expressions, including winks, earlier this year. Google officially added the “wink for picture” option on Tuesday along with several other Glass enhancements. As soon as I heard about the feature, I knew I had to try it.

Yes, there is a certain danger if your patient thinks you are “winking” at them. Putting that aside I believe that Google glasses will have many uses for dentistry. The ability to take a hands free photo in the middle of a procedure would be great for both patient education and dental/legal record keeping.
