"We see a huge potential market for our app related to wearables and we're excited to be one of the early leaders in tech development," said Michael Chasen, founder and chief executive officer at SocialRadar.  "Our app provides tremendous value to wearable technology by making you more socially intelligent about the people around you. According to IDC, wearable devices, like Google Glass, will reach 19 million units in 2014 and then dramatically grow to 111.9 million in 2018."

This is a brilliant collection of concepts, facts and research about what makes the wearables space so different from any other computing paradigm to date, and why it needs to be approached as such. It's rich with tips and URLs for prototyping, testing, and assessing the effectiveness of hardware and software design for all platforms, not just Glass.

Well done.

I'm taking a pic with my cellphone because I'm not allowed to take it with Google Glass. It had to be United the first plane that they asked me to take Glass off because of security concerns.

This guy is totally taking a picture of me!

The privacy concerns surrounding Google Glass are not about Glass... they're about cameras in general. My opinion is that people need as much power (or more, really) than our governments. When governmenta and businesses are photographing us everywhere we go, why are we fighting amongst ourselves about taking photos of each other?

Exploring the Acceptability of Google Glass as an Everyday Assistive Device for People with Parkinson’s

At #chi2014 , researchers from Newcastle University’s Culture Lab and the University of Sussex School of Engineering and Informatics presented a qualitative study investigating the acceptability and utility of Google Glass for use by people with Parkinson's Disease (PD).

PD is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system affecting over 7 million people worldwide, with motor symptoms including rigidity, tremor, and slowness of movement that affects balance, gait, arm and facial movements. 

The study, Exploring the Acceptability of Google Glass as an Everyday Assistive Device for People with Parkinson’s (http://goo.gl/wDPNyZ), explores the use of wearable technology to help the self-management of PD symptoms, motivated by the fact that traditional handheld technologies can be difficult to use for those affected by PD.  

The participants wore Glass during everyday activities at home and in public, using it to provide contextual reminders and in-sight task support linked to key behaviors typical of the disorder. The study reports that participants were enabled with an increased sense of independence and confidence to be on their own, opening up a range of possibilities to help PD patients in everyday life.   #GoogleAtCHI
