Can you imagine what it would be like if you had to kick your shoes off and plop down on the floor in the middle of the grocery store in order to answer your phone? Or to be unable to take pictures while standing or walking? I have a disability, and I don’t have to imagine; it’s my reality. I use my feet instead of hands for many things, and it works alright for me. But let’s face it: feet aren’t hands, and often I find myself frustrated fiddling with technology that was not designed for someone like me. How many photos and conversations I’ve missed out on. For me to use a smartphone, I must be seated, stationary, and shoeless. As the mom of a toddler, such peaceful moments are few.
That is why I am beyond excited that Google Glass is on the horizon, and that I’ve been invited to be a part of their Glass Explorers program, which allows me to test the technology before its public release.
I am guest posting over at Squiish today. Follow me there to read the rest.
