If every police force was like Dubai's, they'd have to beat back the crowds of recruits. On top of having million-dollar Bugati Veyrons and $350,000 Lamborghini Aventadors as pursuit cars, Reuters said detectives on the Gulf force will soon be using Google Glass. The wearable will help cops identify crooks using facial recognition tied to an online database (while still keeping their gun-hands free). Traffic cops there are already getting Glass, and the tiny emirate has thrown piles of cash at its police force despite a recent recession and relatively low crime rates. Still, looking like a cyborg and driving a Lambo? Eight-year-old boys everywhere definitely approve.
