Functions currently offered by Glass can be adopted to turn the product from a novelty to a necessity through specialist apps such as RoseTinted. The app is designed for the fast paced lifestyle of those working within fashion events and the app will eventually broaden to a larger scape of events and eventually for everyday usage.
The current ideal functions include:
Task Countdown; to help users organise and priorities tasks at hand with a live countdown of tasks that need to be completed. These tasks are catered to each user as they enter the task and time themselves through the RoseTinted app.
Stream Videos; sharing videos after they have been recorded is already an option provided by Google but I wish to speed up the process by allowing users to stream live recordings to social media sites and the companies web address.
Attendee Arrival; through RFID invitations, guests are automatically checked into the event upon arrival. The Glass user inputs the quests they wish to know the arrival off into the app before the event.
Combining both Attendee Arrival and Stream Videos, companies offer the chance for watchers to view an interview or interaction between the Glass wearer and desired guest, encouraging people to log on at a specific time to watch live footage from first hand angles.
