Children who have autism spectrum disorder can have a very difficult time conversing with others, which makes their every day life frustrating and difficult. To help resolve the language barrier, a professor at the University of Toronto has developed an innovative autism app that works in conjunction with the Google Glass platform to help kids initiate conversation.

This Google Glass autism app listens to what the user is saying and begins to recognize their conversational pattern, before offering responses on the glass display.

This autism app has already been tested on several children with autism spectrum disorder and showed promising results, with children seeming to enjoy their interactions with the technology. This goes to show how augmented apps can be used to help people with various disabilities, particularly when used on smart glasses platforms.
