Video: Google Glass takes home automation to the next level

Google Glass Home Automation

Google’s strategy with Google Glass is as brilliant as it is unconventional. While Glass isn’t shaping up to be the next iPad, Google knows that there is plenty of potential for connected eyewear to help usher in a new era of wearable computing. Google also knows that without a sizable application ecosystem in place from day one, Glass may very well die on the vine. As such, the company released early prototypes to developers and put them to work as it gets ready to launch the eyewear sometime next year. We have already seen several interesting — and creepy — apps with plenty of time left before Glass becomes available to the public, and now Revolv has released a demo video showing just a few of the possibilities when Google Glass is integrated with a home automation system. In the video, a Revolv developer shows how easy it is to control lights, a door lock and even a Sonos music system with Google Glass. The full video follows below.
