Posted April 04, 2019 05:05:58Digital visual interfaces are coming.
And they’re going to make a big difference to the way we communicate.
We need to embrace them.
The Globe and Mail’s digital visual designers have put together this list of 20 reasons why.
If you’re not a visual designer, the idea is worth reading.
The list includes:1.
More people use them.
More than three million people use Google Glass, and more than 1.5 million people are using a Google Glass camera, according to the company.
In 2017, the total number of Google Glass users doubled from two million to more than six million.2.
People have more and more access to digital data.
Google Glass is the only wearable device with a built-in camera, and data is getting stored in it.
In 2015, Google Glass recorded 2.1 terabytes of data, according, the Wall Street Journal.3.
You can make it all happen.
For instance, with Glass, you can easily connect your phone to your computer and record and share your work.
You might want to wear a Google glasses earpiece to make sure the earpiece is working properly, and you might want a smartwatch to make the screen responsive and visible.4.
It’s not just about privacy.
Google is working on more ways to make it easier to share photos and videos, and its Glass video recorder can be used to record audio, too.
The Google Glass video recording technology has already been used to show off Google Glass prototypes at the Google I/O conference.5.
You have more choices.
You don’t have to spend $300 on a Google glass, and even the cheapest Google glass with a camera can be augmented with the right lenses and sensors to capture more and better photos and video.
You just need a smart watch.
The most affordable Google Glass with a smart band is the Gear Fit, priced at $100.6.
You’re not alone.
This is a big, important shift, said Rob Wiebe, a professor at the University of Toronto who researches wearable computing.
“There’s a growing movement to make wearables as pervasive as computing, where we’ve seen how it’s done in the past and how it can be done today,” he said.
“I think it’s going to happen, and I think we’re going get there.”
The Globe and the Mail’s visual designers were invited to the Google Glass Launch Event in London in January.
In addition to sharing the first photos and information from the first two demonstrations, the Globe and The Mail also presented some of the first real examples of Google glass using wearable technology.
Here are some of their thoughts.1.
People are just getting started.
It is important to note that the first demonstration was done on a computer, so it was not possible to take photos or videos.
But as technology has evolved and people have access to more devices, they have started to get into wearables.2,5,6.
There’s a lot of room for innovation.
The new glasses are designed for more users and more varied applications, said Wiebbe.
“The potential is there,” he told The Globe.
“But we need to work together to make this a reality.
It doesn’t just happen in the short term.”7.
You won’t have an app problem.
Google has been working on the technology for a long time.
The Glass SDKs for Glass and the Google Watch are already available.
The technology has also been tested in smartphones and tablets.
In the past, Google has also demonstrated the technology on its self-driving cars, but it has never demonstrated the Glass technology in person.8.
You’ll be able to communicate more easily.
The device has a built in microphone, and Google Glass also includes a built‑in speaker.
Google’s glasses also include a “chat” function that enables you to ask people questions in a voice that doesn’t sound robotic.9.
The world will be a better place.
The glasses have already been tested on humans, but Google has said it plans to start working on augmented reality in the future.
“We believe this technology will change the way people think about technology,” Google Glass’ chief product officer, Marc Benioff, told the Google event.10.
It could be transformative.
As we learn more about the technology, it will become clear that the world is ready for the kind of personalized, connected digital experience that Glass provides, said Beniof.
“When we look back on the 20 years of Google’s existence, we’ll see that Glass was a crucial piece of the puzzle for our company,” he added.11.
Google may be on to something.
There are many potential applications for the technology.
For example, Google may someday be able for instance to build a device that can read a text message.
It may be able also to help people to communicate with others through augmented reality, using the glasses as a touch screen.12
