Google Glass, Augmented Reality, And Cloud Computing

Google Glass, Augmented Reality, and Cloud Computing

Google Glass has been generating a lot of hype because of its capabilities which is an indication that technology is finally heading towards the direction of science fiction; a move that a lot of people growing up in the 70’s and 80’s have been anticipating for a long time. Google Glass is a wearable computer which opens up a lot of multimedia possibilities, not just for sharing and recording, but for consumption as well. The biggest possibility would be augmented reality. This brings a totally new piece to the board which will change the game once again. And this alone will already make Google Glass a worthy purchase.

Imagine the possibilities of augmented reality. The way we view the world will be totally changed, it will probably look like the interface of a game with different heads-up display (HUD) elements being shown. When can set up a waypoint of your destination on your map and get a visual cue on where it is exactly so you can just follow that barring a turn-by-turn system which will not be feasible for small streets and crowded market areas. You can set up reminders and checklists of things to do or buy and all of them visible in the corner of your eye, and it can even tell you which isle these products are located. The practical application of Google Glass is practically limited only by our imagination, and of course the infrastructure.

Google Glass would require a new networking infrastructure that can handle the massive amounts of data that will be travelling wirelessly from everybody. The amount of data being transferred every second will be like nothing we have seen before because if this technology takes off, everyone will be transmitting data (especially video) back and forth constantly from their Glass. Our current 4G and LTE will not be enough so a way must be found to get everyone connected while preventing the network from becoming congested.

And there is no mistaking that Cloud computing will be the paradigm being followed this coming generation. It has all of the right specifications which will be able to put Google Glass and augmented reality into the mainstream. Because something like this requires limitless processing resources off-device, the infrastructure has to ensure that everyone can use resources when they need it. Dynamic provision feature of Cloud Computing will take care of this. Not to mention all that data needs to be stored somewhere and retrieved at any time. The Cloud will be abuzz with so much data and new problems will probably arise especially privacy related ones.
