Google Glass apps for Parkinson’s sufferers, doctors and consumers.
4. Glass for work
Google has launched a new Glass at Work programme in efforts to help businesses, factories and other workplaces learn more how Glass might be integrated in useful ways for their employees and business processes.
Two businesses that are already experimenting with Glass are the Washington Capitals NHL hockey club and Schlumberger, an oil field services company, according to Google.
Google said it wants to drive even more interest in the business word.
"We wanted to create a program that made it easier for them to get started on implementing Glass in their businesses," a Google spokesperson said.
4. Live streaming
Livestream.com released its first app for Google Glass it claims will allow users to broadcast events in venues or stadiums to their family and friends in real-time.
The app, which is now available on iOS, Android and Glass, also displays viewers’ comments to the wearer and allows Glass wearers to stream video directly to their Livestream channel.
To begin live streaming, users pair Glass with an event and say, "OK Glass, Livestream," and tap the device to go live.
The video streaming firm, which was behind the live streaming of Twitter’s IPO, said the possibilities of Livestream are endless for Glass.
In a statement, CEO Max Haot said: "From a reporter covering a protest, to an athlete competing in a sports arena, we believe that Glass will be instrumental in democratizing the future of live video streaming."
Glashion, a fashion startup, has released a Google Glass app, which it hopes will allow glass wearers to buy clothes or accessories that they spot on the go.
Introduced in September 2013, users download the app to their Glass and then take a photo of any fashion items that they come across in a shop.
The app then shows similar product results via ShopStyle API, and you either tap to buy the product or swipe to see more matching products.
The firm, founded by AngelHack NYC, Billy Mauro and Felipe Servin, said the app could bridge online and offline shopping behaviours, and avoid the awkwardness of taking a photo with a phone.
