Where is Google Glass Now

By Shane Staret on 2018-04-14

I’m gonna cut right to the chase: Google Glass was virtually unanimously agreed upon to be a huge disappointment at release in 2013. And then, you basically never really heard about it again. Like many other products that fell flat on their face at release, Google Glass kind of just faded away into obscurity, only to be referenced when someone is talking about the most recent technology busts. But it isn’t quite dead yet.

First off, if you don’t know why Google Glass was not all that popular with people, all you have to know is that they were over $1,000 and that you could potentially perform facial recognition programs on random strangers in public. And that’s only the beginning. There were lots of concerns regarding the Google Glass and it certainly is one of the most controversial mainstream technological inventions of the current decade.

But, none of these concerns have completely killed off the Google Glass market. Google stopped creating their prototypes in 2015, as they wanted to create a second version that was much better than the first. After the water calmed a bit and everyone kind of forgot about Google Glass, the company quietly announced in July 2017 that it was going to be releasing the second iteration. However, the catch was that it wasn’t to be released to the general population, rather it was to be released for certain companies to be used to help workers. This version of the Google Glass was officially marketed as the Google Glass Enterprise Edition. The Enterprise Edition has received and continues to receive positive reviews, as there are no longer many privacy issues since they are only used by workers for work-related tasks.

It seems as though the Enterprise Edition is the most successful iteration Google Glass. While they are not open to the general population, I personally think this was the only way that Google could ensure that they did not waste a bunch of time and money by developing the Google Glass technology. I think there would always be major controversy surrounding something like Google Glass that could be used by anyone of the general public. Or, at least the ones that can drop over $1000 for some glasses.

Surprisingly, Google Glass has also been important in autism research and treatment. Dr. Ned Sahin is a notable person who has attempted to use Google Glass technology to treat children with autism. Autism can cause an individual to misinterpret other people’s emotions and social cues. By using a certain program that allowed users to practice identifying social cues and emotions, more could be discovered about how autistic individuals vary from a “normal” individual’s interpretation of social cues. Ned hoped that by having young children use Google Glass, it would improve their ability to provide effective treatment for autistic kids and lead to less stress for the autistic individual.

Stanford Research has created their own project to possibly limit the effects of autism. This project is called the Autism Glass Project. This project also incorporates the families of the autistic individual. The primary goal of this project is to allow an autistic individual to better understand other’s emotional responses. Trials are currently going on. The user will see different emotions of an individual and then would review these images with a parent or family member. The parent would then indicate the actual emotion of the individual, with the hope that the child would learn how to recognize the signs of different emotional responses even though they are autistic.

Google Glass has come a long way. From just a pair of nerdy glasses to something that could potentially be used to make the life of autistic individuals better. Personally, I think the Google Glass Enterprise Edition could be revolutionary, as it allows important workers, like doctors, to directly utilize technology while performing extremely important tasks. This could lead to more effective medical procedures, less work-related injuries, and possibly even a more fulfilling experience for the worker. So, don’t count Google Glass out yet, as even though it had a terrible beginning, its use and public perception has only gone up since.
