Last year at a Google launch event the new ‘google glass’ was offered to developers for $1500. This year we may well see the launch of many wearable technology ideas. Apple, Microsoft, Sony and Oakley to name a few have patents on wearable technology. Google is aiming to sell this product to consumers before the end of 2014.
Google states “We’re looking for bold, creative individuals who want to join us and be a part of shaping the future of Glass,” . Google Glass is still in early stages, but it has potential to be the next big thing. As you can see from the video, users will have a display on the lens of the glasses allowing them to record video and take pictures with voice command which can then be shared. I can see this will fit in perfectly with google + and will be waiting to see how well this product does in time. It certainly is interesting and a step forward in consumer technology.
