Google GLASS: Project Proposal
Transcript of Google GLASS: Project Proposal
I am looking for funding of Google GLASS, a brand new piece of technology.
I want to build a team, conduct research on GLASS, and develop an application.
WHAT IS GLASS AND WHAT CAN IT DO FOR CLARKSON?
GLASS is the newest advancement in wearable technology. It has the power to change the world.
Information on GLASS is separated into timeline cards. These timeline cards push relevant information to GLASS. The timeline is made up of date, time, calendar events, weather and other pieces of Glassware. See the visual below.
From a development standpoint, when building Glassware using Google's Mirror API, Google handles the syncing to GLASS for the users who have downloaded our application. This way, testing the software on GLASS can be almost instantaneous. This is important for later iterations.
BUT WHAT CAN IT DO FOR CLARK-SON?
Sync class schedule to GLASS
Homework, project notifications
Group meeting notifications
Exam schedule (your exams)
GLASS hasn't hit the market just yet and an updated development kit is on its way. My team and I will build Glassware that defies convention, while still functioning as a useful application that will appeal to many. For now applications are all freeware, but our hopes are still to build Glassware with Clarkson's name on it. The GLASS provided to myself, will be my way of testing the Glassware.
I'll run seminars, webinars, and presentations, allowing professors and students to test the capabilities of GLASS and what we're doing with the application. This way we can test if our app fits into every day life.
welcome to the future.
GLASS displays information in a way that most of us are familiar with. It's essentially a hands-free smartphone, but it's much more than that. It's a timeline populated with information (Glassware - GLASS applications), readily available for you at the sound of your voice or touch of the headset.
APP DEVELOPMENT & PROCESS
Simple Glassware ideas for education
Other Glassware ideas
Augmented reality application
3D feel and representation projected on your HUD (heads-up display)
Safety or silent application while operating a vehicle
In addition, Clarkson is always looking for ways to improve technology. It's at the heart of our education. GLASS is on the verge of something big, and to get the school involved with this new technology and its applications would be monumental, not only for us the students, but for the future benefit of the Clarkson community when these hit the market.
GLASS identifies objects moving on the side of the road (ie. a deer) and alerts you. Keeps messages and other notifications silent. Also alerts you if you might be dosing off using its built-in gyroscope. Note: HUD must not impair vision.
3D space solver using the ambient light sensing and proximity sensor, while recording video.
Ideal for video soft-ware like After Effects, Premiere, and Final Cut Pro
1. Pull together a group of creative students to "deep-dive" the application idea. This is a powerful brainstorming method where you bring together a group to build ideas, though they will not build the application itself.
2. Form actual team
3. Test product before development
4. Plan development
5. Development and Testing
6. Identify and fix bugs and errors
7. Final iteration
UX designer/developer/team leader: myself, three to four developers, and one designer
Keep in mind this is a very rough sketch of the process, more planning would happen in phase two.
WHY SHOULD YOU INVEST IN MY GLASS?
Thinker, designer, developer, programmer, marketer, I will assemble a team and take the application and research from start to finish. This is something that will hopefully leave an impact at Clarkson for years to come, even as the product starts rolling out to the market.
What I'm asking for
Fund my GLASS. I'll test the product, allow people to try the technology, and then build an application that fits into the busy lives of students effortlessly.
Thanks for listening!
Meal plan count
Campus security contact
Ideas will be developed more after pulling together a team to brainstorm.
When designing an application, it's all about solving a problem. Every day students run into problems that I believe can be solved with GLASS. As an unreleased product, we'll have the chance to build something that, if successful, could take a chunk of the app market.
My friend believed in me, that's why she sent me the invite. I want you to believe in me and my ideas, and invest in my pair of GLASS. I don't want the invite to go to waste, as it's a new technology that I believe can change Clarkson and the world, others think so too: http://www.businessinsider.com/gartner-google-glass-will-save-1b-2013-11
Though, we have to move quickly, as my invite expires this Friday at 3 PM.
