Questions about the direction and future ethicacy of this device are quite common, with prolific tech innovators like Elon Musk tweeting about it, stating that "This doesn't even *seem* innocent". While Google intends for this version of the device to only be focused on capturing cute moments, it leaves much to wonder about the possibility of further advancements such as automatically uploading to the cloud or violating its user's privacy.
