I’ve been using Google Glass for a couple of months now and wanted to share my experiences with the automotive community. My hope is to shed some light on where this segment is heading and what our industry can prepare for in the near term.
Google Glass is currently the most popular example of the future of wearable technology. There are plenty of helpful and practical wearable technology solutions currently available. The most popular example falls within the Quantified Self category, this includes health tracking tools such as the Nike Fuel band.
The range of solutions continues to expand as smart watches by Samsung have already been released (Galaxy Gear) Apple and Google are rumored to enter this space with their own solutions as well. There are also other competitors trying to introduce their own version of Google Glass. Many of the competitors are trying to position themselves differently claiming other uses for athletics or specific industries leveraging 3D augmented reality.
