The Google Glass “smart glasses” are going on sale in the United States on Tuesday, April 15, as rising interest is being shown by property professionals around the world. The high-tech eyewear costs $1,500 (almost £900) and is on sale for one day from 9 a.m. EST to over-18s living in the United States who fill in an online form. It will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis as part of the Explorer scheme.
In 2014, I’ll be watching a couple of new technologies that could bring about some big changes in the way our industry works. I’m particularly interested in Google Glass, set for a still undisclosed but immanent public release, and iBeacon, which is already out there, but not yet comprehensively implemented.
