5 Possible Assistive Technology Uses for Google Glass

Ever since Google Glass was announced I have been excited about the possibilities of this technology. We have the standard impressions of the device being able to take video and pictures with a voice command or a head gesture and being able to get information on just about anything you are looking at. The following articles talk about the impacts that Google Glass may have on the assistive technology field. With the prototypes recently given out we may have an even better idea of what this will provide for an individual with a disability very soon. Take a look at the possible solutions and feel free to suggest how you think it could be best used.
