A group of researchers discovered that Google Glass is just as dangerous and distracting as mobile phones when used for texting while driving, Reuters reported.

Google previously explained that its high-tech eyewear relies on voice commands and head movements to open and reply to text messages. These features seem safer as compared to looking at the phone's screen and using fingers to text while doing something else.

But according to the researchers from the University of Central Florida, the Google Glass can still negatively affect the driving performance of users.
