App Focus: Google Glass For Your Tesla!

Talk about your niche markets...



    Young entrepreneur develops app for Google Glass to be used with Tesla vehicles. Scott Budman reports. (Published Wednesday, July 3, 2013)

    There are niche markets, and then there's this: An app, for Google Glass, that focuses on your Tesla.

    That's exactly what Sahas Katta has come up with. The Silicon Valley entrepreneur has tinkered with Google Glass, and come up with an app he calls Glass Tesla. Yes, an app that puts a tiny screen in your field of vision, as you drive a car.

    Now, we're about to go driving with Mr. Katta, who says that most of the app is for use while outside the car. That's a good thing, because screens and cars have not gotten along well in the past, and Google Glass is not going to make anyone feel any better about that relationship.

    That said, apps for Glass are already being created - a couple of weeks ago, we went house-hunting with Glass, aided by a Trulia app that was cool, helpful, and pretty seamlessly integrated into the Glasswear.

    Can't wait to roll with Katta, and his latest creation.
