Published on

Google Glass raises a number of questions: Should we design for it? *What* do we design for it? Who will use it? We'll explore how technology like Glass has already been prototyped, anti-prototyped, proven, and disproven for years in film, television, and literature. Learn how to harness these images to answer timely strategy questions and design products and apps able to transform the future.
