Saving a Life with Google Glass

I’ve been reflecting on the ubiquity of our digital devices. I voiced questions about what they might for the human experience, and a little bit about what this might have to do with schooling. Here’s something neat on the flipside to those thoughts: a doctor has designed an app for Google Glass that one can use in the case of a cardiac emergency. Activate it, and it sets a number of steps into motion to help you do CPR and save a life.

PS – Below is NOT an image from Google Glass, but it’s equally awesome. Anyone remember this? HINT: it first aired in 1991. It had something to do with people wearing special glasses, transmitting images into their eyes as they played. I think the wearers tried to go about their days as they played, but this became a problem because the game was addictive. Hat tip to my mother-in-law for reminding me of this!

NOT from Google Glass.

Remember this?
