Google Glass – Day 3: Future Healthcare Applications
On day 3, I brought Glass to work and introduced it to my staff and others at the hospital. Unfortunately, I could not connect to the internet thru Glass.
On day 3, I brought Glass to work and introduced it to my staff and others at the hospital. Unfortunately, I could not connect to the internet thru Glass. The private wireless network did not allow a connection from the device and the public network requires browser authentication (like many airports and hotels) which is not possible in Glass. So the main demo was videos and photos I had already taken and demonstrating how to take photos and videos or having Glass read aloud alerts, such as, those from the New York Times.
So what applications are there in medicine and healthcare for this device? Already there are many ideas coming forward:
- “Google Glass makes some people uneasy, but a medical app that tells folks how to perform CPR not only could save lives, but also highlights what’s so awesome about our connected, sensor-rich future.”
- Google Glass Invades Social Media With #ThroughGlass
- Chloe Glass – a simulator wearing Glass to evaluate medical practice in training
- Use of Glass in surgery
