Google Glass - Industry and Business benefits and impact

Here are some of the industry and business benefits from Google Glass

Retail (“G-commerce”)
Glass could capture a barcode, scour the Google Shopping database and identify available product attributes, enabling the Glass user to add to a virtual cart and purchase. An interesting video on grocery shopping through glass.

Advertising (“Admented Reality”)
Glass can gather a massive amount of extremely personal data based on what you look at and for how long. Google may use this data mining to build even more detailed consumer profiles and/or sell targeted ads. Here's an interesting video of what advertising through google glass or "admented reality" could look like.

Using Glass, game developers can overlay game play over the real world

Travel & Tourism
Using Glass, overlaying data and imagery on top of historical buildings & museum exhibits, the ability to do a
quick, relevant voice search without pulling out your phone will make learning about history  more immersive than ever.

Glass’s theoretical ability to translate spoken language into real-time subtitles, effectively eliminates any
language barrier.
