    Blaine Bublitz, a security researcher used a JavaScript program called node.js. to control a robot through Google Glass. Bublitz, managed to turn the wearable device into a control system for a Parrot AR drone. Bublitz who attended a hacking seminar in July used a JavaScript program called node.js. to control robots to create a program that would work for different controllers and vehicles. He managed to control the device to respond to movements like a jerk of head instead of voice commands for processing. Bublitz also added up-and-down movements for optimal steering of the robot. He was able to control the AR drone successfully via Google Glass, although he experienced some glitches while using the device.
