Unformatted text preview: Google applications in Google Glass, it’s already happening to some degree. Perhaps its only a
matter of time until third parties get involved with their own cloud- based service offerings.
When Rackspace first announced the results of the wearable technology study, the company asserted that
wearable technologies like Google Glass will drive the rise of the cloud. But it’s worth considering Scoble’s
statements on the cloud and wearable technologies going hand in hand, albeit not necessarily in the same way he
implied, in combination with what’s been said here, and looking at the relationship between the two in the
opposite direction: will wearable IP connected devices fuel cloud, or will cloud fuel uptake of these devices?
