I think that wearable tech will be the future of mobile devices. Maybe it will take 5-10 years, but the technology of size and power are moving in that direction. It still won't change the basic issues currently challenging BYOD and enterprise communication, but I bet these wearable will still need data protection and will have some form of text messaging which will still need security apps like Tigertext to protect and secure that data incase the wearable device is left in the gym locker room or taken from the user.

I don't think this issue has anything to do with glass, it is about as secure as any other not well thought out computing device. The real issue in this example is the QR code. It is easier to use than typing in a URL, but anyone who uses a QR code blindly trusts some dots in a pattern. With a URL there is a reasonably good chance to see if that URL matches the expected resource.
QR codes are big, they are ugly, and they are dangerous. Don't use them and don't put them anywhere. It is, same as glass, another devices that was not well thought out. Especially not from a security perspective.

Technologists are too often like lawmakers: "Ooooh, look, I've got this world-changing idea. Lets do it! NOW!!!"

Seldom much of a though of the downsides. You've gotta game the system yourself and think about how people will attack it BEFORE you dump it on the unsuspecting masses. You won't catch everything, but at least you will stop some of the problems before they happen.

re: Hack My Google Glass: Security's Next Big Worry?
With all new technology, there are always going to be security risks. With all technology its a constant battle between hackers and the security measures being put up to prevent these hackers. It has always been a back and forth, with every new security measure just proving to be temporary barriers as hackers find new ways around all measures. I'm not saying we shouldn't be taking these concerns seriously, but even if we address current security concerns, there will be more to come.

I'd worry about device theft before malicious QR codes.

If mobile devices are going to make autonomous decisions about what network to connect to, first we've got to teach them to be paranoid.
