Re: Google Glass in the field
Price will remain a notable obstacle even in enterprise settings, I suspect. CIOs are getting conditioned to low-cost, disposable electronics the same way we as consumers are, as they embrace $500 consumer-grade tablets.

Re: Google Glass in the field
Reminds me a bit of IBM's challenge with its Watson computer: We've developed this really cool technology, now we have to figure out some practical applications for it.

Re: Google Glass in the field
I suspect that Glass in the workplace will do better when the device is capable of doing less. Pretty much every function you'd want from Glass should be instantly accessible; it doesn't work to scroll through menus while standing in a field somewhere.

Google Glass in the field
Interesting that an oil company is mentioned here. I met another energy company CIO recently who said his company was working on its first applications for Google Glass in the field. Field testing may spur some of the earliest practical uses of Google Glass.
