Google Glass


Google Glass caught much attention, topping news headlines in description of the field of modern Wearable technology. Initiated as the next step of augmentation in workplace tech tools, Glass is something that we didn't tread lightly.

At first glance, we saw it as a pair of glassless glasses. The single, small prism block was a distracting interruption the top-right corner of our view. Once it was turned on, however, the rapid blood flow of childhood-Christmas excitement ensued. It was incredible! With nothing but spoken commands it could run its apps, its Google searches, even its camera.

After a bit of practice, we discovered not only the use of the power button and swipes but also the camera button itself, which made it much easier to take videos with as well. The framing of Google Glass videos are on par with that of the GoPro, because of Glass' light weight and eyeglass-standard affixiation to its wearer.

In the end, a lot of struggles were duly noted as well. Google Glass had a disappointingly small battery life, and its limitations to secure WiFi access was rough at times. Our Explorer Edition Glasses were also unable to link to Apple iPhones.

We explored the various capabilities of Pebble Smartwatch by understanding its user group, audience, and purpose in a medical context. The group also interacted with the Pebble watch javascript (.JS) software package via CLOUDPEBBLE to practice developing an application as well as to further understand the structure of the applications that are used on Pebble Smartwatch.


Pebble Smartwatch allows users to track various aspects of their health such as heartrate, daily consumed calories, etc. – just by looking at your wrist!
