As in the earlier post we have discussed what the augmented reality glasses are capable of there seems to be a time coming for Apple and Facebook, two companies that are leading the tech world with their relative services and products, full of worries as Google has announced the public testing of its Web based glasses.
Why Apple Should Worry
Google’s glasses do have many things that an iPhone contains, and many things that it does not. The video outed by Google showing a man wearing the glasses is voice commanding the gadget to perform certain tasks that makes it a direct rival to Apple’s Siri. Plus, it has Google Maps, a connection to company’s social networking service Google+, it has calendar reminders, shows your directions on-the-go, pop up messages once a friend of yours in nearby, take photos for you and much more.
iPhone does share some features from above but it doesn’t has its own maps and social network, two major differences that can discern iPhone from Google’s glass. Why would a wearer of the glasses snatch his iPhone to take a photo when Google glasses can take care of this thing for him and post it to Google+ with voice command.
This is Where FB Comes in
Facebook doesn’t has any hardware abilities neither it is going to that direction in near future so why not form a coalition with Apple who is the leader in consumer market and make its own version of glasses that can compete the version from Google. Because the search company is promoting its all the major service with its augmented glasses.
It’s the time tech companies start thinking about if Project Glass becomes a commercial hit from one year now things can change quickly in Google’s favor.
