Google Highlights Google Glass As Aid To Disabled

A lot of people have made fun of Google Glass, asking why you need to wear a computer in front of your face and pointing out that it could make you look like a silly hipster cyborg. But Google showed off how the device could be life-changing for someone with a disability.  Google spent time with  Alex Blaszczuk, who was paralyzed from the chest down in a car accident, as she went on a camping trip with friends. A YouTube video showed Alex on a camping trip with friends.

She used Google Glass to get directions, take photographs and videos to share via social media and look up information on the Internet all with the use of her voice.
