InduSoft Web Studio e Google Glass

Na última década, a demanda para smartphones era quase inexistente. Mesmo com a tecnologia se desenvolvendo para tornar smartphones e tablets itens comuns, não existia mercado para eles. A Apple mudou essa demanda quando introduziu o iPhone, um produto atraente que serviria de transição para o mercado de smartphones. Mais tarde, ela então introduziu o iPad. Nenhum dos dois produtos foram os primeiros, ou os únicos, em seus grupos, porém o lançamento dos dois aumentaram a demanda desse tipo de produto significativamente. Agora a Google está recriando o mesmo cenário com o Google Glass. O Google Glass não é o primeiro, ou único, computador que pode ser usado, ele também não é o único modelo de HUD (Heads Up Display) no mercado, mas a Google espera que o lançamento do Google Glass crie no mercado a demanda para esse tipo de dispositivo.

What Future Do You Predict for Wearable Computers?

A decade ago, there was little demand for smartphones. Even as the technology developed to the point where smartphones and tablets could be mass produced, there was no market for them. Apple changed that when it introduced the iPhone and made an attractive product that could ease consumers into the smartphone market. Later, it followed up with the iPad. Neither product was the first or only product in its class, but the introduction of both did drive demand. Now, Google is attempting to recreate that model with Google Glass. Glass is not the first or only wearable computer, nor is it the only Heads Up Display model on the market, but Google hopes that when it releases Glass to consumers, it will create demand for wearable computing that didn’t previously exist. Continue reading
