PREACH ... looks like it's time for a #sermon
i was going to say +Jason Lukaszewski
have a chat with +Allen Firstenberg
about possibly using Vodo, that's still the most useful glassware i ever used !
allen ... is that still available, when i switched email account i didn't change it at vodo so currently i can't test to see if it is ?
jason it sounds like we use glass in very similar fashion, your struggle is my struggle ... and this is why i've held off developing a final system
until the wearables hardware landscape is a more clearly defined.
i DO believe glass
IS a huge success ... the knowledge gained is incredible, of course the iterative process now has to go to work, and we lose traction as an older path is abandoned in favor of plowing a better roads for tomorrow.
i do NOT believe that path is andriod wear on a watch ... at least for me it IS a head worn device, i need my hands to work (just like you do jason) so hands free is a must, voice is a must, and other i/o occurring at face level
for the "face" reference) are a must.
so, the business person in me says yes to shuttering nextgen, it is a physical product that takes it's design from another physical product that is either changing or going away ... but that does not mean take all that energy, experience, and awareness
and walk away ?
i think it means stop, stand, and stare !!!
very carefully ... where we've been as explorers, WHO the technology worked for, WHY it worked for them, HOW they used it, and most importantly no one seems to want to do this any more ... we need to go ASK them exactly these two questions, the successful use cases will tell us
the answers to ALL these questions :
1. HOW do you use glass ?
2. WHY do you glass ?
whether it's for just looking cool in front of others, in a social manner, or solving real world problems, they will tell us what we need to know !!!
products & services built for those market segments WILL succeed, the writing is on the wall, even if devices are no longer on most people's heads ...
i'm an explorer, i'm ALL IN on using wearables in my industry ... and i still don't even know the final hardware product i am committing to yet !!!
but i know one thing, when it gets here i'll be using it, corporate structure will be in place, ready to adopt as a beta-testers the next version of glass, first generically then development of a system that yields the holy grail of what i've always dreamed of ...automated field data collection, management, & reporting
be an #explorer
