Google Glass - Risks and Rewards

The world of augmented reality is set ablaze with the release of the limited edition Google Glass. It is a paradigm shift from the regular and mundane technology and spectacles to something that is futuristic and will definitely make you feel like a character in a James Bond movie.

Making of Google Glass

Google Glass is more than just another tech device but instead a sophisticated computing platform built within a glass frame. This platform enables the wearer to take pictures or videos through speech command recognition.

The platform also enables delivery of sound to the wearer through bone conduction methods.

This technological miracle comes power-packed with a dual-core processor that runs at 1 GHz. And that's not all! Google Glass consists of a three-axis accelerometer, three-axis gyroscope, and magnetometer. It has the built-in capability to provide localized information utilizing its on-board global positioning system can quickly locate your current position and location.

With those features it shows a lot of potential when used in travel, expeditions, archaeological excavations and other related areas. This is possible with the help of Google Maps.

To use GPS, you simply connect to your smart-phone and use the MyGlass app created by Google to enhance the existing GPS functionality. Along with GPS, you can use Google's voice-to-text functionality to locate lost friends or expedition teammates in low visibility or other tough natural environments.

Google Glass Saving Money and Lives

Google Glass has a lot of potential in a society where technology being created one day is becoming obsolete the next. The potential lies in the fact that Google Glass can be used not only by end user but also by government agencies like intelligence, fire department, forest and wildlife, aviation, and much more.

Currently priced at $1,500, this is one pair of glasses with some exclusivity. It comes with a drop down menu that can be accessed by sliding your finger across the glass frame or by moving your head up or down.

One of the potential areas where this gadget could really change lives is in the area of accidental death cause by driver fatigue. This device could potentially detect and communicate to the driver or someone else that their driving is erratic or even dangerous. This alone could help save millions of dollars in damages and reduce the number of senseless loss of life.

Google Glass Can Drive Potential Revenue

Google Glass is expected to drive business revenue in a different direction altogether. Google has recently acquired patent for “Pay-per-gaze” technology, which will help generate revenue by charging advertisers every time consumers look at a specific advertisement on their screen.

Google Glass Security Concerns

The biggest advantage of Google Glass is that it is a state of the art technological device, and this is also the reason for concern for some. Keeping information secure is always a challenge and experts feel that since it lacks the requirement of pin number, password, or touch; in the near future, if anyone steals your glasses, they can easily have access to all your vital information and data. It poses an even higher risk if stolen glasses are hot wired to a government system.

Google Glass Privacy Concerns

Google Glass is a device that is capable of video and audio recording and capable of taking pictures. Critics believe that this capability can be misused in several ways and people can take pictures of confidential documents or record confidential meetings. Additionally there are concerns that these glasses could be used in open and closed areas filming the general public without their expressed permission.

The truth is that no one really knows what the future has in store for this technological marvel, however Google Glass is definitely making its presence felt and will more than likely show up on the faces of your co-workers and friends sooner than you think.
