Glass gets second life in the medical community

  • Google Glass (GOOG, GOOGL) failed to catch on with the broader mainstream market when it debuted to select consumers in 2013, but the old technology is taking on a new function - serving as a telemedicine tool for doctors in emergency situations.
  • For example, if a patient overdoses or is poisoned, Glass allows a bedside doctor to transmit data and video in real time to a toxicology specialist in a different location.

Eventually v.r will allow for something similar and it will be really cool to see/experience
The battery life and utility for your average consumers is just not there. I can see Google glasses working in niches like medical, financial, security and military.

I agree with you on Himax!! Himax has a lot to look forward to. When they start going mainstream Himax’s revenues and earnings are going to skyrocket.
@Chris Lau - I think the waveguides they are using are likely from Vuzix. Don't know on the projection engine, but that could be Vuzix too.
