HUD for Glass is a Pilot’s New Best Friend

November 19, 2014 - Written By Cory McNutt

Google has been working on company’s Glass project for more than a few years – during that time, people in the know realize Glass’ tremendous potential… in fact, it has gone way beyond pure potential. Firefighters, the police, schools, pipeline workers, emergency responders, and hospitals are all using them, specific ones though, but still. By doing so, they are already reaping the many benefits hands-free information can provide, especially in critical and analytical situations.

There are others that have simply heard a few news reports or read a few articles about Glass. This type of news has mostly sensationalized them or has been about organizations with complaints concerning the many privacy issues that can arise because of the potential for their misuse.  Strip clubs, bathrooms, pedophiles, bars, using Glass at the movies have all been closely documented – they have even been banned in many places before public sales even took place.

Another new app is now available for Glass called ‘HUD for Glass’ – it is a Heads-up Display, designed by a pilot. It is not designed to replace your flight instruments by any means, but as an aid for helping a pilot or co-pilot when they have to be away from the main controls. It displays altitude, speed, aircraft heading, pitching and roll.  No internet connection is needed, although GPS is required to display altitude and speed data. It is designed for ease of use, so you can get all of the information that you need without losing focus on what you are doing.  HUD for Glass supports feet/knots as well as meters and km/h.

You have to commend Google on their patience in bringing Glass out – testing is good and allowing new app developers time to tap into their full potential is a good thing.  But there comes a point in time when you must finally release the product before too much bad press has people suspicious and afraid of your product for no apparent reason whatsoever.  The good that Glass is doing MUST be their focus before people start to hate this product and destroy its potential.

Please hit us up on our Google+ Page and let us know your feelings on Google Glass – are you looking forward to them or do you hate them… as always, we would love to hear from you.
