2Wearable Technology Really Is the Future
If there’s any trend that’s emerging rapidly in IT, it’s wearable technology. Companies around the globe are investing heavily in wearable technology, and for consumers who love gadgets, it’s better to get in on the trend early, rather than wait it out. That’s why Google Glass, which will help lead the wearable-tech revolution, deserves to be on top of the shopping list.
3The Mapping Functionality Is Awfully Nice
4It Provides a New Perspective on Life
One of the interesting things about Glass is that it can legitimately provide a new perspective on life. In other words, really interesting pictures and videos can be taken, hands-free, from the eyes. And when certain items like Maps arrows can be tossed onto streets, it changes your perspective. And in this case, different is nice.
5It’ll Only Get Better
As noted, the nice thing about Google Glass is that it’s only in testing at the moment. And once Google hears back about its eyewear from the “Explorers,” the company is planning to improve the device where needed. That’s a good thing. And it means that when it actually launches, it’ll be even better than it is right now.
6The Apps Could Be Incredible
Google has asked for developers to start creating programs designed for Glass. And if Android is any indication, there appears to be a good chance that the apps could do some incredible things. Google Glass’ built-in apps are a good start, but the third-party programs could make the eyewear so much better.
7No One Else Is All That Close to Matching It
8The Design Isn’t So Bad
9There’s a “Cool” Geekiness to It
10The Real-Time Information Is Crucial
Regardless of where a person is, Google Glass will provide them with all kinds of insight into their locations. Sometimes, that real-time information will help them identify a particular area or landmark, while in other cases, it’ll deliver useful data. Either way, the Google Glass real-time information support is critical to its success.
11It’s Essentially a Smartphone—on Your Face
The fact that Google Glass does just about everything a person wants is extremely important in evaluating its broader appeal to consumers. Those customers are buying products, like smartphones, that can do it all because they want a one-stop shop for their productivity needs. In the case of Google Glass, it offers that all-in-one experience, similar to smartphones, directly to a person’s eyes. It’s a great idea with a great premise.
