I’ll Wear My Smartglasses Today
|by Sujata C|
Google is encouraging surgeons, engineers, policemen and other professionals to wear Google Glass to work, despite the many misgivings that people have about this new innovation - smart glasses. Won’t it distract me from my work? Does it mean the end of all privacy? Will people use it to secretly record me? Are we going to have more accidents on the roads and elsewhere? Is it just another toy to play with or will it make a meaningful difference to my life and the workplace.
The weightless industries, such as insurance, media and banking will likely experience a low impact from smart glasses. However, there are still potentially beneficial uses for smart glasses. Insurance agents, for example, may use smartglasses to video property that has been damaged and then check on the replacement value of items they have identified using a visual search. Financial institutions and the media will use smartglasses to deliver alerts via subscription services to professionals who need up-to-the-minute information.
Google has also taken the trouble of putting out a long list to bust some of the myths that have come to surround the smartglasses in its relatively short existence. It suggests that Google Glass is for everyone not just tech worshipping geeks. The company is continually taking feedback and refining the product before releasing it in the mass market. The wearer’s security on the device is their priority and the camera will not be in on-mode always simply because battery life is very limited.
