Here’s another cool application of the Google Glass. Developer Blaine Bublitz managed to implement and control a quadcopter drone using head movements. He wears a Google Glass which captures the head nods, transforms them into flying instructions and sends them over to the drone.
I can only wonder what the future reserves us. The Google Glass seems to be scheduled for retail somewhere in 2014, and, once available on the markets, I am sure there will be an explosion of apps and new feature around it.
What’s your take on it? What other cool applications you see for the Glass?
