A publication for chief information officers has a feature on how smart glasses can be used to make people more productive. One company has designed smart glasses to act as computers that people can wear. In this way, a worker can do one thing with her hands while doing another with her eyes. For example, she can scan a barcode by just looking at it. Another application is for first responders, who can transmit data by simply looking at the subject. The writer notes that the glasses have GPS for locating a worker or first responder.
- Smart glasses allow for workers to complete tasks such as scanning barcodes or referencing relevant information completely hands free.
- Live streaming of the wearers view would allow for better remote assistance in a wide variety of situations including system repair and emergency medicine.
- Integrating smart glasses into learning can improve engagement and reduce training time.
“One of the greatest selling points of smart glasses is that they’re compatible with Android apps.”
