I’m sure we’ve all thought about what we’d like to use Google Glass for if we actually had a pair for ourselves. Personally, the gamer and geek in me would be elated to have an app that would point out Ingress portals and energy sources to control (and since we’re dreaming, perhaps it’d let me take an energy source simply by looking at it, too). Well, us enthusiast users aren’t the only ones with big dreams for Google Glass.
JetBlue participated in the #ifihadglass hashtag on Google+ and showed its vision of what Google Glass could be useful for. The mock-up showed a user looking at an airport parking garage, and the app spit back information about how full the garage was so a user can know if they’ll have a parking spot before entering. It definitely sounds like something that could work beautifully as long as it hooks up to JetBlue’s tracking system to get updates on garage activity in real time.
Other use cases included the ability to show users how many wall outlets are available for charging devices, displaying flight information such as arrival time and delay status, showing you where your baggage will come from, how long it would take, and directions to get to the right carousel, and a quick estimate of how much your taxi fare would be and how long it would take to get to your destination.
This sort of open-ended thinking is what has many of us excited about Google Glass and the unique possibilities it brings, and it’s why we at Phandroid couldn’t be any more excited to have a crack at the units whenever they become available.
