You Can Use Your Glass for Good or…
We’ve seen this before – incredible technology is released to the consumer and a flurry of unimaginative, low impact uses and applications are associated with it. Anyone remember the early days of the app store? Google Glass is about to hit a similar junction, but rather than seeing an emphasis on picture-taking, sport-reporting, calorie-counting apps, the focus will be on Google Glass being used by people who do really important, life-saving jobs with both hands, and don't actually care how they look.
This session will cover and explore the use cases developed by actual firefighters, police officers, EMTs, surgeons, and soldiers. If you're more interested in how Glass will make a difference in the world than how it'll let you creepily take pictures of people by winking, this talk is for you. We'll skip over the 1.0 apps and talk about how Glass might actually help people doing important jobs do them better.
- What are actual scenarios where Glass (or a similar wearable technology) can provide essential support to professionals that need to be hands-free, while saving lives?
- What will the regulatory process look like for critical applications using Glass?
- Is it possible Glass will go mainstream and wearable technology for EMTs, firefighters, police officers, etc. will have to rely on a proprietary technology?
- What is the killer use case that will cause Glass to be embraced by these fields, that are often not known for being early adopters of technology?
- If this is the first generation of life-saving applications for Glass, what does gen. 2 look like? Or gen. 5?
