ATLANTA, GA–Jason Russell, founder and President of Diverse Mobile, demonstrated the diverse capabilities of Google Glass during the Mastermind Group’s January discussion.
Created by the MBDA Business Center-Atlanta, the Mastermind Group provides clients a platform to brainstorm ideas for innovation in healthcare, construction, manufacturing and information technology with other existing and emerging companies, to improve their business practices and to gain access to Georgia Tech’s innumerable resources.
Attendees of this month’s Mastermind Group included both IT business owners and Georgia Tech students who were invited because of their interest to pursue careers in technology. The group first received a tutorial on Google Glass, a wearable computer with optical head-mounted display, and then was given the opportunity try on a pair to witness its futuristic components. As a result, the group was able to snap a photo by the wink of the eye, pull up a map by a simple command and slide through options with a stroke of a finger.
Later, the group brainstormed new applications that could derive from Google Glass which included: a telehealth application that would allow physicians to check on their patients from miles away; a health application that would allow users to diagnose their own illnesses; a construction application that would help contractors visualize their finished projects and more.
