First case of person being addicted to Google Glass 

Doctors at the U.S. Navy’s Substance Abuse Program in Virginia say they have treated the first reported case of someone being addicted to Google Glass.
 
A 31-year-old man admitted to the facility in September of 2013 had Google Glass — as well as everything else — taken from him for treatment, Dr. Andrew Doan, author of “Hooked on Games” and head of the Navy facility’s addictions and resilience studies, told HLN.
 
"What we noticed was that this man showed an addiction by mimicking use of the device. It provided a rush," he told HLN. "When people feel down, when they feel depressed, they feel a need to use something to make them feel better," he said. 
 
The man was originally at the facility for treatment of alcohol addiction, but with all his gadgets removed, Doan’s colleague, Dr. Kathryn Yung, noticed something strange: ”When he was in the inpatient treatment center, she noticed that he was tapping the right side of his face, actually going through withdrawal from Google Glass,” Doan said. “It was this way that he was sharing his desire to be on the device and also showing agitation.”
