Google Unmasks First “Glass at Work” Partners

Google wants its Google Glass face computer everywhere. It’s not just meant for walking around the streets or snapping photos of an unsuspecting passersby. Instead, Google wants to see Glass used in all parts of the world, whether it’s in the classroom or at work. In an effort to build up support for the latter, the company created its “Glass at Work” program, and on Monday it unmasked its first partners.

“We’ve been searching for developers who are creating Glassware to help businesses reach their goals,” Google said. “We heard from hundreds of enterprise developers and today we’re excited to announce our first round of Glass at Work Certified Partners.”

The first certified companies include GuidiGo, Crowdoptic, Augmedix and APX. Google provided one example for what Augmedix has already come up with, which is a platform that allows doctors to view information on upcoming patents right in Google Glass. You can see an example of the app above.

Of course these aren’t the only companies using Google Glass to advance their existing systems, but they are some of the first to enter Google’s certified program. JetBlue, for example, has imagined some really awesome uses for Google Glass in airports. Whether we’ll ever see them, however, is another question entirely.
