The most exciting technology I see on the horizon is Google Glass.
You wear it like regular glasses and give voice commands. Say “take a picture” and it snaps a photo of whatever you are looking at. As a professional photographer, that is very exciting because I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wished I had a camera ready to capture a moment. Google Glass also records video of what you see, hands-free.
You can connect in a Skype-like manner to someone to share what you see live. You can summon GPS directions right in front of you, eliminating the dangerous practice of fumbling for your smartphone while trying to drive. Google Glass can also translate your voice and give you visual notifications.
This is the beginning of wearable media. Next will be smart devices in our clothes.
Google Glass costs about $1,500, so I don’t see widespread adoption until that price comes down, which it will once Apple and others get some skin in the game.
