Google Glass: 10 use cases for wearable technology
As Virgin Atlantic and the NYPD trial Google Glass, we look at the other potential business uses...
8. Training, repair and inspection
Industries that require employees to manufacturer and repair products would be wise to investigate the benefits of Glass. Workers will be able to look up how products are assembled or ask for help in real-time if they are unsure what to do in the field.
Where else will Google Glass be used?
Assessors will also be able to monitor progress of pupils in real-time via Hangouts or by reviewing a recording.
9. Police and military
With complaints about the behaviour of police forces and military personnel on the rise, Glass can be used to record activities in the field as it provides a point-of-view perspective and doesn't obstruct activity.
The NYPD obtained two pairs of Glass in December 2013, and is determining field applications.
After the controversial shooting of Mark Duggan in the UK, firearms officers will be required to wear video cameras in the future - and Glass could be a good fit.
Whether Google likes it or not the adult entertainment industry is going to be using Glass to film explicit material from a point-of-view perspective (POV).
The web giant has already banned porn related apps from Glass after a Seattle-based startup called MiKandi created a "Tits and Glass" app.
Although apps may be banned, Google won't be able to stop users from photographing or recording explicit content with the video camera on Glass and then sharing it via email or through its Hangouts app.
