Fidelity Market Monitor for Glass
If the technology pundits and futurists are correct, we are on the verge of a new wave of technical disruption: wearable computing. Wearable Computing is loosely defined as technology that is worn, whether it is glasses, watches, clothing, wrist bands, clothing, really any technology worn on the body. These physical devices are beginning to enter our lives in many forms. Early examples include the FitBit, Nike+ Fuelband, and Pebble Watch.
Google, a company that has become synonymous with technology innovation, is exploring wearable computing with Google Glass. Fidelity Labs has helped investors benefit from transformative technologies like mobile computing and social media and now, we hope to do the same with Google Glass.
Fidelity Labs is participating in a Google early developer program, and is working with a prototype of Google Glass to better understand the technology and how it may benefit our customers. We have produced a short video showing how investors may one day use Google Glass.
In addition to the video we are releasing our first experiment with Google Glass allowing you to receive, at market close, quotes from the major indexes. You can sign up here.
Help us shape the future of wearable computing and investing! Please, take a look at the video and let us know what you think. Which of the uses shown in the video make sense to you? What possibilities do you see for investors using Google Glass?
