A California woman pleaded not guilty Tuesday to what is believed to be the first traffic citation alleging a motorist was using Googles computer-in-an-eyeglass. Cecilia Abadie was one of about 10,000 explorers who received the glasses earlier this year as part of a tryout. Her case touches several hot-button issues,including distracted driving,wearable technology that will one day become mainstream,and how laws often lag technological developments. Abadie was pulled over in October on suspicion of going 80 mph in a 65 mph zone on a San Diego freeway. Abadies attorney told The Associated Press that she will testify at a trial scheduled for January that the glasses were not on when she was driving,and activated when she looked up at the officer as he stood by her window.
