Google Glass apps for BBC News

BBC News Labs investigated some preliminary ideas for Google Glass applications.

Hypothesis

Investigate the possible Journalist and Audience applications for Google Glass.

We explored a some opportunities during 2014 around Google Glass. None were immediately scalable or worth the investment, so we have closed this work for now.

Google Glass Journalist Tools

  • Courtroom reporting application

Google Glass News Browser

  • Audience experiences around location and headlines from BBC and other publishers.
