We all know that video is going to play a major role in the functionality of Google Glass, and one company has already made sharing recordings very simple. It is, in fact, the era of being the fastest. With a new app called Beam, Glass users can easily post videos straight to YouTube, and even share them through services such as Twitter once they are live. A seamless Glass and YouTube experience sounds like a perfect match, doesn’t it?
The Explorer Edition that has been handed out to early backers is currently a barebones experience. However, it is wide open to developer interpretation. So far we have already seen Glass’ potential tapped through one user creating a way to snap photos by winking, and there is likely to be much more as the months go on. After all, the final perfect of Glass is going to be a combined effort of all people using it now, thanks to their reviews.
The only thing that concerns us right now is the question why Google did not create it’s own app. We are speculating that Google will likely create it’s own Glass to YouTube bridge once the device is available more widely, but Beam certainly highlights the wearable technology’s capabilities. As long as developers are dreaming up possible Glass features, the value and hype of Google’s futuristic tech will continue to rise. Imagine the following:
- Snapping a video at a concert
- Or videographing a sports event you’re present at.
- Unboxing a gadegt
- Making a prep video
And being being able to do all the above and directly uploading to YouTube. Cool, isn’t it? Google Glass seems to have a lot of potential, none of us can wait for more to be out in the open.
What according to you can be a breakthrough concept in the Glass? Let us know.
