Google Glass and augmented reality are interesting concepts that we are waiting for with great anticipation.  We submitted a (non-winning) entry to Google’s prototype contest that asked “what would you do with Glass”.  This brainstorming exercise really got us interested in what commercial augmented reality products like Glass could do when coupled with modular fabrication and parametric design software like BIM.  3D models of a building could be overlaid in the user’s field of vision allowing them to see what they are to build in real-time.  Such “hands free” blueprint technology could really improve the already great efficiency on the modular shop floor.  What other ideas do you have for how this technology could be utilized in the building sector?
