DevFest West 2013 @Google: LIGHTNING TALK : Learnings, Prototypes & Use Cases on Google Glass

1,051 views

Published on

This talk was given at the DevFest 2013 Conference held at Google Crittenden campus in Mountain View. It provides insights and lessons learned from innovative experiments for building innovative services for Google Glass for capturing financial data picture and for mobile payments. It covers a number of Glass Use-Cases as well as Glass Prototypes that we implemented across Intuit. Furthermore, the talk highlights "Glass Design Guidelines" from a developer's perspective and conclude with "Lessons Learned".

  • Rob the landscaper visits a potential customer
    Project: Renovate the backyard Workflow
    Backyard dimensions automatically determined
    Using GPS location and Google satellite image.
    Total cost and deposit estimated automatically
    Customer pays by check
    Landscaper remotely deposits check
    and get paid for deposit payment by taking a picture of the check.

  • So the first use case I’m going to cover was created by a group of us during CTO Dev Innovation Days. Once a quarter, CTO Dev consolidates all of their unstructured time hours into
    3 days where they lock themselves in a room away from their day-to-day jobs and work on an unstructured time project. Last quarter, Tasmeem, Sreeneel, Peijun and Cindy decided
    to investigate Google Glass even though we didn’t have a Glass. At that time, the primary way to program for Glass was with the Mirror API.

    To investigate Google Glass even though we didn’t have a Glass. At that time, the primary way to program for Glass was with the Mirror API
    A user is out and about wearing Glass initiates the service, and is able to get the total balances (Cash In-Flow and Out-Flow)
  • So the 2nd use case I’m going to demonstrate today is called GlassPay. When I watched some of the Glass sessions from Google I/O, there was 1 panel discussion with about
    6 Glass experts and the moderator asked each of them what their “Killer” Glassware app would be and one of the Google people said, “I would love to see Payments done with
    Glass.” Well, who better than us to create that app. So, Cindy gathered some other co-workers, Mithun, Komal, Alex “Mr Payments” Ran, and for brainstorming power and support,
    Bill Laaser and we came up with this idea.

    2. 2. Agenda • Glass Use Cases (Mobile SIG: Date with Google Glass) • Glass Prototypes – Mint Glassware (Mirror API) – GlassPay (Native app) – GLOffers (Native app) • Learnings
    3. 3. Glass Use Case #1 AllergyMeter – allergy check in a snap Imagine if you or your loved ones have allergies and when you go shopping wearing Glass, it could alert you when you pick a product by scanning the ingredients.
    4. 4. AllergyMeter Scenario A (1) I don’t know if I’m buying the right food product given my family’s allergies. (2) Tap and go (3) Scanning … (4) Allergy free
    5. 5. AllergyMeter Scenario B (1) Pick another food product. (2) Tap and go (3) Scanning … (4) Allergic for the family
    6. 6. Allergy Meter List Yay! We have the allergy list
    7. 7. Glass Use Case #2 GlassTimator – scan, estimate, get paid A landscaper wearing Glass visiting his prospective client could automatically survey the area, get measurements and calculate estimates. Project: renovate the backyard workflow: 1.Backyard dimensions automatically determined • Using GPS location and Google satellite image 1.Total cost and deposit estimated automatically 2.Customer pays by check 3.Landscaper remotely deposits check
    8. 8. GlassTimator Scenario (1) Survey area (3) Scan to deposit (2) Estimate (4) Deposit confirmation

    11. 11. Mint Glassware (Mirror API)
    12. 12. MicroMint: What We Learned • Users wearing Glass were more interested in seeing total balances • Need to focus on simple use cases • Hook up glassware with existing Web services where it makes sense
    13. 13. GlassPay (Native app) (6) Crypto signed proof of payment (2) Pending purchase advertised via QR code (1) Merchant rings up the purchase (3) Customer scans with Glass, reviews and authorizes payment (5) Customer’s account verified, payment confirmed Merchant’s Bank (4) Account verification, instructions to pay Customer Customer’s Bank

    22. 22. Lessons Learned
    23. 23. Resources: Mirror Glassware Development • Start with Google Glass tutorials: https://developers.google.com/glass/quickstart/index • Install Google Plug-in for Eclipse which allows you to easily deploy to Google App Engine • If you don’t have Glass, – try the Google Glass Emulator • Used for emulating Glassware based on Mirror API – Develop native Android app designed specifically with Glass in mind and test on an Android phone
    24. 24. Using Mirror API vs Native Android app • Depends on – What your app needs to do – Developer preferences for server development vs Android development – Whether you have access to a Glass device for development • Mirror API development – Supported currently – Limited access to hardware capabilities on Glass (i.e. camera, GPS and limited voice ) • Native Android Development – Easy to test on an Android phone so not so dependent on availability of a Glass device – Access to all hardware on the Glass (i.e. GPS, accelerometer, gyro, etc)
    25. 25. Android GDK • Not released yet but you can still write native apps using Android v15 • Samples: https://developers.google.com/glass/gdk • Turn on Debug mode from Glass Settings>Device Info -> Turn on Debug Side loading an apk: • adb install -r [sampleName].apk • adb shell am start -n com.google.glass.samples.<sampleName>/.<MainActivity Name>
    26. 26. Android GDK (cont) • Or install Launchy: https://github.com/kaze0/launchy Launchy is a supplementary native app launcher for Google Glass –Build and deploy Launchy to your Glass device –Select Glass Settings and you should get a typical Android dialog that gives you the option of picking GlassHome or Launchy for this action. Select Launchy and check the box to always use Launchy. –You can now launch your app from here
    27. 27. More Learnings • Initial development environment (Mirror API) is based on Java, and not Android! • Apps are server-based and synced to Glass via Google’s Glass Sync. This may change with the release of the GDK.
