Multi-Model Interface – Beyond web and mobile
Google glass is a polarizing device. Positive opinions have often focused on the possibilities for augmented realities and multi-model natural interface, while the negative ones tend to focus on the privacy ramification and driving distractions. The features currently available cover a significant portion of your daily tasks. You can receive notifications from emails, text messages and reply, search using Google, get directions, and make calls (including video calls). Its point of view camera allows you to take pictures or shoot videos with ease.
Glass’s brilliance lies in its form factor and multi-model interface, which translates date into a user interface fundamentally different from anything we have experienced before. Wearing and interacting with Glass doesn’t feel like using a conventional mobile device. Google Glass makes it easier to capture the details of daily life, it react to real situations much faster and makes you feel smarter! “We’re talking about a device that sees everything you see and hears everything you hear,” says Rod Furlan, an artificial intelligence researcher and angel investor (Ackerman, 2013).
Future potential for wearable devices
With the realization of wearable device like Google Glass, the possibilities are enormous. Based on the current trends, statistics and existing technology, the features we foreseen for the Google Glass will enable a wide range of augmented cognition applications, combined with the computational power of the cloud, and machine learning (Furlan, 2013). Imagine being able to search every conversation you had, or send real-time information (visual, aural and location data) to your recipient in your voice command.
