Apple CEO Tim Cook shared his concern last night at the D11 conference that Google Glass will likely only appeal to certain vertical markets, but I’m not entirely certain this is the type of vertical market Cook had in mind.
In an interview with MiKandi Co-founder Jennifer McEwen, we learn that the adult entertainment company is on the brink of debuting the first Glassware with porn in mind:
Obviously, Glass is perfect for shooting POV video, so we’re experimenting with that first. But what’s really interesting about Glass is that it’s not just a hands free camera. It can receive and send data, so there are a lot of interesting interactions that we want to explore.
Being hands-free and hassle-free is a simple but big difference Glass has over other similar devices. It’s so easy and familiar to wear, that from a shooter’s perspective it feels like you’re recording with your own eyes. Because it feels so natural, you can forget about the technology and just be in the moment.
On top of that, with Glass you can share and interact with fans and followers, allowing them intimate access to your experiences. It’s like being John Malkovich where you’re viewing the world through someone else’s eyes.
