What would the perfect news application designed for Google Glass look like?

What would the perfect news application designed for Google Glass look like? | Wearing the future of technology | Scoop.it

Devices like Google Glass are going to change the way that we consume the news and other information — how will media companies have to change the way they think about the news and how it is constructed?

 

To say there’s a lot of debate about the “wearable technology” known as Google Glass would be an understatement. Some enthusiasts see it as the future of mobile man-machine interfaces, while others say it is more likely to be the new Apple Newton — in other words, a widely-hyped product that will ultimately fail. But let’s assume some form of head-mounted display becomes commonplace: how will it change the way we consume content, and how will news outlets of all kinds have to change the way they think about what they do?
