A man has been treated for Internet addiction via Google Glass, possibly the first case of its kind.
The unnamed, 31-year-old member of the U.S. Navy was using Google Glass 18 hours a day and removing it only for sleeping or washing, according to the Guardian. He also reported agitation and anger when not using the device and "experiencing dreams as if viewed through the device's" small window.
While Internet addiction has been treated for a while, it's not part of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, otherwise known as DSM-5. However, Andrew Doan, head of addictions and resilience research at the U.S. Navy's Substance Abuse and Recovery Program, co-authored a paper on the unnamed patient arguing that it is a legitimate psychological problem.
