Google Glass Gets Gmail Evernote and more apps.
To all those who have been living under a Rock these past months, Let me explain what it is actually, Google GLASS, widely publicized as GLASS only, is an Augmented reality wearable Mobile computer, which displays information on your glasses, like in a kind of Science fiction movie that you might have seen, its feels pretty much futuristic to me still after announcement but its a reality.
Now Google have gone ahead and released some apps like Gmail, Evernote and New York times news Reader app, the demonstration was done in Austin, where SXSW interactive is taking Place.
These apps will work on "Timeline cards" interface, which is almost similar to Android interface, where user will be provided with short bursts of information with simple functionality.
For New york times it will mean bursts of photos and headlines when you look up, Evernote app will let users share photos and videos via Skitch.
Rest all basic Functionality is Rather Simple, you say take a Picture , it takes a Picture, you say What is time Glass ? You see time!, You are Driving, may want to see the map to the destination in the Glass also.
When The "Timeline API" is released for the Developers , we can expect more apps like Google's Operating system Android, and it may become a device competing Mainstream Mobile devices, we can't say until its cost and availability are known for sure.
