Google's Project Glass

Google's Project Glass - 

Google Glass (styled "GLΛSS") is a wearable computer with an optical head-mounted display (OHMD) that is being developed by Google in theProject Glass research and development project,[9] with the mission of producing a mass-market ubiquitous computer.[1] Google Glass displays information in a smartphone-like hands-free format,[10] that can interact with the Internet via natural language voice commands

Now SAP and Vuzix have teamed up to create augmented reality glasses,presenting it for manufacturers, logistics companies, and service technicians as well.

 The smart glasses connect with a smartphone to access data that is then displayed on a screen in front of the wearer's eye. The wearer controls the device by giving it voice commands. For example, smart glasses can guide warehouse workers to the products on their pick lists. At the shelf they can scan the barcode to make sure they have the right item and confirm in the system that it has been picked. Forklift drivers can use the glasses to request help or instructions on how to resolve a technical problem, for instance.

SAP products that can be used with smart glasses are: SAP Inventory Manager, SAP Work Manager, SAP CRM Service Manager, SAP Rounds Manager, and SAP Machine-to-Machine Platform. According to Vuzix, the smart glasses can run on iOS and Android.
