Google Glass is not a trivial product

Watching this Chris Dixon interview this morning helped me appreciate that Google Glass has real-world non-trivial applications.


1. A teacher giving a lecture while drawing a diagram on whiteboard.

2. As a teleprompter for a person giving a speech.

3. A doctor reviewing test results while examining a patient.

4. An architect looking at designs on a site visit.

5. Watching your heart rate while riding a bike.

6. Sign-language interpreter for a real-time meeting.

7. In general, as a heads-up display for jobs that require use of your hands and access to information, at the same time.

Honestly, I had not thought of these applications until Dixon explained.

And of course there are trivial applications, like watching Green Acres while pretending to pay attention to someone talking. ;-)
