I wouldn’t be surprised if in 10 years, perhaps even less, Google Glass (or a similar technology) was the new iPhone. It could very well be the new standard of how the progressive generations consume their content, shop, and communicate. Why you may ask? Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google, dives into why Glass might be the catalyst for the dawn of a new media consumption age.
Key takeaway at the bottom.
No, you wont have have to worry about optimizing your ecommerce site for Glass in 2014. But, it does seem like technology is headed towards a more hands-free experience, considering the prototype of Glass and the introduction of smart-watches. Who knows, both may flop, but I’d certainly be interested in a future where our lives aren’t confined to 2.3×5 -inch screens.
Just some food for thought…
