Google Glass is a wearable computer with an optical head-mounted display that is being developed by Google. The product is still within its infancy stages with only 10,000 devices being sent out to Google ‘Explorers’ and only in America. These explorers are made up of technological entrepreneurs, bloggers, app developers and others with influence in their industry. They entered themselves into a lottery and those chosen by Google paid $1,500 to own the bragging rights of owning the first release of Glass.
Glass originally offered users the chance to record a video, take a photo, send a text and search information all through voice command or by a touchpad next to their right ear. New alterations are continuously being created and the second wave of data released by Google now offers specific apps for sports and gaming etc.
This controversial product has received vast amounts of mixed opinions on both its intention and style and this research blog is exploring how Google are addressing these problems and how my app will help Google ensure Glass is welcomed by the general public in 2014.
