But that time is not far away when one can find people communicating with their smartphones with a Google glass, whether it’s about storing movies, books or any notification which can be seen with the use of Google glass but also it will correct our eye vision if needed. In fact, developers are working on these geeky looking glasses to make it more compact but they are also working towards the invention of the contact lenses which can give the complete feeling of any sci-fi movies in the matter of time.

However, a question arises; how it’s a complete business solution and in what industries Google glass has been used or is going to be used. If we look at the current situation, Google glasses and business doesn’t seems to go hand-in-hand. Businesses which are into bar, casinos, movie theatres, or any other business where these glasses can breach their privacy policy will not welcome Google glass and will ban them.

However there are many industries, where they are eager to use this technology or already using it or it’s under the testing phase or something.
