Part 1 of 3: Google Glass

Google Glass has existed for two years and found its way into the lifestyle and consumer world. It does everything any smartphone can do, but is wearable as an eyepiece.

A Californian personal injury lawyer has become an early adopter of using the Google Glass at his law firm. He uses it to record interviews of witnesses, throughout depositions, and in all of his day-to-day responsibilities. But his favourite application of Google Glass is sorting through case files as they appear directly in front of him at the court, at home and during meetings as he swipes through the air, taps the side, or tells it the next function.

Look for Google Glass to make its way into proceedings more and more this year. If there is a dangerous walkway, covered with ice and posing a dangerous threat, you can turn on Google Glass record. If a victim is seriously injured, jurors and insurers will now be able to see a victim’s challenges first hand. Google Glass is a hand’s free – distraction free device allowing for first person recording you wouldn’t otherwise be able to use with a smartphone. Think of 2015 for Google Glass as 2007 was for I-Phone: the year the very early adopters began to switch over from their “antiquated” technology.

 It’s always smart to keep your cell phone in your glove compartment and away from your hands while driving. If you or someone you know are involved in a car accident, if possible- remember to record as much information and take plenty of photos at the location of the accident.
