…so suit up and visors on

A Temecula woman was found not guilty in traffic court Thursday of a charge of distracted driving for wearing Google Glass.

Cecilia Abadie, 44, is believed to be the first driver in the nation to have received such a ticket. Google Glass is not yet on the market. Abadie is among those who are testing the product nationwide, called Google Glass Explorers.

San Diego Traffic Commissioner John Blair found that wearing the computer-in-eyewear could be covered as distracted driving by the traffic code, but police must prove that the eyewear was on.

On her Facebook page, Abadie thanked the people who had followed her case and had supported her claim of innocence: “Yes, we can continue to be CYBORGS even when we drive! Happy for all my fellow Glass Explorers that were anxiously waiting for this decision.”

There…feel better now?
