Sydney: A security researcher has reportedly used a JavaScript code in order to turn Google`s wearable computing eyegear Google Glass into a drone controller.

Blaine Bublitz experimented with a JavaScript program called node.js. to create a program to tweak for different controllers and vehicles.

Bublitz was successful in his experiment and is now able to control a drone softly floating in the air before him with just a slight tilt of the head.

Although, he was able to control the AR drone via Google Glass, there were a few glitches as Bublitz said that he couldn`t see where the bot was while he was control ling it adding that something that could be of about eye height would have been better.

He said that he would like to add the ability to rotate the drone left and right based on Google Glass` azimuth value but that will take time to realize.

Users who want to experiment with the program can also download it from Bublitz`s GitHub profile, the report added.
