Igniting Business Tests Google Glass
You may have heard some buzz recently about the new Google Glass. Well Igniting Business had the opportunity to test it out, courtesy of our new friend David Drum, Research Manager at MOREnet.

The computer screen prism sits safely in the upper right-hand corner of your field of vision. In addition to being WiFi enabled, Glass can connect with your phone via Bluetooth which takes advantage of 3G or 4G, so that you can post to Facebook, share a video, use the impressive built-in maps application, or even send a message without having to use your hands. But how useful is it for businesses?
It’s no doubt that Google Glass is handy and can help eliminate some inefficiencies, but, as of now, it would be a stretch to say that it is going to revolutionize business and culture. Only time will tell though as adoption and usage increases.

And, of course, it is an entertaining tool for personal use. As new apps and improvements arrive, we will see how much potential Google Glass really has.
