"Italy data protection authority asks Facebook to clarify privacy implications of smart glasses"

From Jurist. In part:

Italy’s administrative authority on personal data protection, Garante Privacy, on Friday asked its Irish counterpart, the Irish Data Protection Commission (Irish DPC), to solicit answers from Facebook to a series of questions on the privacy implications of its new smart glasses before the company markets them on the Italian market.

Facebook’s smart glasses, called Ray-Ban Stories, have been developed in partnership with Ray-Ban maker EssilorLuxottica. They allow users to listen to music, take calls, or capture photos and short videos, which can then be shared across services such as Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger, Twitter, TikTok, Snapchat, etc.
