Children who have autism spectrum disorder often have a very difficult time conversing others, which makes their every day life frustrating and difficult, which is 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 the interaction with the technology. This goes to show how augmented apps can be used to help people with various kinds of disabilities, particularly when used on smart glasses platforms.
