Internet Addiction Disorder and Problematic Use of Google GlassTM in Patient Treated at a Residential Substance Abuse

I published a paper on Google Glass(tm) and Internet Addiction Disorder, and it is available online until November 29!

* This is the first reported case of internet addiction disorder involving the problematic use of Google Glass(tm).

* Excessive and problematic uses of Google Glass(tm) are associated with involuntary movements to the temple area and short-term memory problems.

* Frustration and irritability are related to withdrawing from excessive use of Google Glass(tm) in our patient.

I didn't even know such thing as Google Glass existed! Thank you for sharing the paper and the news. It is very informative.
