Thoughts on Google Project Glasss: CRM and More...

Knocked up and presented at today's inside a few minutes at Google Developer Group Dublin's Google I/O Extended Extended session of 31-July-2012: my exploration of Project Glass.

Covers what Project Glass is, the UX dimension, the innovation opportunities presented, the developer uptake, some references for you, and a call to action.

Won a prize for this one too. Thanks GDG Dublin. Super event. You can follow GDG Dublin on Twitter too.

Comments:

The main flaw with Project Glass is that glasses always have been, and always will be incredibly annoying, fragile, loseable and fundamentally undesirable things to wear.

One perspective. I don't agree with you though.

You need to consider the context of use (see examples in the slideshare) and the user profiles of the device wearer. PLus, there fashion and other form factor possibilities. Losability is a problem for any mobile/wearable device. In fact there is an usability heuristic on that very point, though there are ways to deal with some of the enterprise aspects presented:
