Google Glass Clinical Trial for Autistic Kids

Google Glass is alive and well and being used a lot in industry and medicine. It might be able to help kids with autism. “For [Catalin] Voss, [Dennis] Wall, and their colleague Nick Haber, a graduate student in mathematics, the idea is that their Glass software will help autistic children recognize and understand facial expressions and, through them, emotions. It operates like a game or, as Voss calls it, an ‘interactive learning experience.’ Through the Google Glass eyewear, children are asked to, say, find someone who is happy; when they look at someone who is smiling, the app recognizes this and awards ‘points.'”
