Have you been fortunate enough to experience Google glass? I have yet to see Google Glass in person. It’s not Google glasses, it is singular, glass. It seems that Google has done to glass what Steve Jobs did with Apple.
Apple, of course, is in step with Google as a competitor, with iGlass. It’s true, Google iGlass. I can only hope that Apple brings iGlass in at a lower price point. At $1500 for Google glass, it could be a while before most of us actually own it. That’s just my opinion. When you want something bad enough, you will find a way to get it.
Google glass responds to voice recognition. If you were wearing the device now, you might say “ok glass, take a picture” and it’s done. Record videos hands free on command. Ask for directions while driving, walking, anywhere. Google glass not only does things; video, pictures, directions, it also knows a vast amount of knowledge. I’m going to guess that Google Glass is more intelligent than Siri. Nothing against Siri, I like her very much. Although, my feelings may change with the tech.
Aside from the entertainment value and instant gratification that we all have come to depend on with technology, Google Glass is said to be the future of healthcare. To date, the Google Glass dance card shows two debuts in surgical procedures to overwhelming reviews.
I hope Google Glass finds its way into hospitals everywhere. No longer will the surgeon need to take eyes off you during surgery to look up or down, or turn their heads, Google Glass saves the day.
