Our Google Glass Apps Wish List

Glass2OK, we admit it. Google Glass has captured our imagination. Here are the ones off the bridge of our noses. Want to add yours?

  1. 1. LieToMe – This app examines the expressions on the faces of people talking to you, checks against a database of expressions and gives you the percentage probability that the person is lying to you.
  2. 2. Jade – This app measures the dilation of the pupils of a person talking to you, compensates for ambient lighting, and rates your real-time desirability on a scale from 1 to 10.
  3. PinPoint – This app allows precise location sensing, down to inches, based on triangulation to nearby Wi-Fi hotspots, whether you’re logged onto them or not. It can be used with the following app.
  4. Marker – This app records your geospatial coordinates on command and recalls them upon request. So if you put your keys down, say, “Marker: Keys.” Also good for walks in the woods.
  5. ProScan – In phase one, you scan a device, such as a TV remote, then, by saying something like, “ProScan: Remote” your field of vision is scanned for any object resembling the remote. Also applies 3-D rotation to the scan to be able to detect the object in different positions.
  6. Bang! – Analyzes any recent noise through stereo microphones and indicates the direction the sound came from.
  7. TagMe – Labels any point in the recorded video stream for instant recall. You can also specify a range, such as “Tag minus 30” to show the 30 seconds of video before the tag.
  8. Gripper – Tightens the earpieces to your head, if excessive motion away from the ideal wearing position is detected.
  9. Cat – If your glasses fall off, this device causes the glasses to twist so that they land on the earpieces, which act like springs to absorb the impact.
  10. GetMyBack – Connects with any publicly available surveillance camera that can see you and displays the view.
  11. Speechless – Provides a socially appropriate response to the most recent comment by a person talking to you, in case you can’t think of one.
  12. Alcohol – Subtly modifies the image of the person in front of you so that they look much better.
