9 Travel Apps for Google Glass
With wearable devices such as Google Glass becoming technology’s next big thing, it’s little surprise developers are going after the travel market.
Not what I’d expect to find coming out of Lubbock, but then they probably don’t expect this to come out of Auckland.
Have you got your Google Glasses yet? I break a pair of sunglasses about every 6 months so I’m not sure I’m a glass person and I definitely wouldn’t want to wear glasses all the time. Don’t get me wrong I would love a pair, but to be frank, unless they sent me a review pair, perhaps to look at car navigation or review apps, I just can’t cost justify them.
Anyway, I love the application for people who are looking for a map location and are sick of the glasses not understanding the location they want to navigate to. So now they have developed an app where you manually look for your destination on your smartphone and then have it send the destination and subsequent navigation to your Google Glasses.
When Google are raving about their voice recognition, it appears that you might need to have a particular accent in order to be understood. Kiwis will get this though, because we have to put on a fake American accent to be understood when we visit the US anyway, so maybe it’s easy for us than some of the natives.
