Just months after Google gave a firm "no" to sexually explicit content, Sherif Maktabi, a developer in London, has released information about his new creation, Sex With Glass. 

The founder tells The Guardian the project started off with the simple question: "How can we make sex more awesome with Google Glass?"

The answer, at least for Maktabi and his team, is all included in the specs for his new product, which is not available to the public just yet. 

The main feature is the ability to switch your point of view and see what your partner is seeing. With a little extra wiring, you can control lights and music in the house through the app. And if you want to relive the night, Sex With Glass customers can watch a replay video. 

But the folks at Gizmodo are a little unsure about "Sex With Glass," writing: "Why would anybody actually want to see their partner's point-of-view while having sex? Isn't that incredibly weird? ​What if you get a text from your mom​?"

Aside from how unsexy headgear during foreplay must be, Mashable points out another potential problem, saying this particular product screams privacy concerns. 

"It's already clear that Google Glass is hackable. Sex With Glass would represent the ultimate target for creepy hackers with a peep show fetish."

Google hasn't commented on the new product, but its stance on sexually explicit content is pretty clear. 

In response, the Sex With Glass founder told The Guardian"People at Google know. And they are happy and had a good laugh. But I don't know what Google 'the thing' thinks of what we are doing."

Maktabi and his team are also working on an iPhone app, which is expected to be released in early February.
