Google Glass and Explorer programs?  What are you talking about?

Ahh Google; that magical, mysterious company that excites the imagination. Full disclosure on this post: I am a total Google fanoid.

Okay, so what is Google Glass?

Google Glass is a wearable computer with an optical head-mounted display that is being developed by Google in the Project Glass research and development project, with a mission of producing a mass-market ubiquitous computer.

Things to do with Google Glass

  • Google anything… (conversational search) if you came to our Hummingbird webinar we explained how that worked. This is what Google Glass uses for its search function.

  • Take lots of pictures

  • Shoot video

  • Send emails, text messages and even blog to your tumblr account!

  • Search for business are your area… like Auto Repair Shops or Thai Food

  • Have a video conference call

  • Get turn-by-turn navigation without looking at your GPS or phone

  • Lots of other cool things..

Overwhelmed you yet?  Nah of course not you’re just thinking that is so awesome.

Okay so my story on how and why I got Google Glass.

I got Google Glass for two reasons

  • To look cool… (not a Glasshole!)

  • To see how this new product may affect search behavior in how people search Google and find your business.

So Looking over how Google glass works is pretty different from how we search now.

  • Key observations

    • No more page one rankings… thats right with Google glass everything seems to run on cards that you swipe through to get different results.

    • No keyboard just hand gestures

    • Voice commands…

So as a review on what I think of GLASS is as follows:

  • Super easy to generate content like Pictures and Video

  • Upload to Google plus in a flash

  • Publish to your company blog and be one and done…
