This Google Glass App Lets You Know Where to Locate or Dock a Citi Bike

This app for Google Glass can help you find where to dock your Citi Bike. The CityRide for Glass was developed as one of the submissions for New York City's BigApps Competition. After the bike share program launched last year, the city has been seeking ways to get it off the ground. As they seek potential partnerships from gym-related investments, software developers are going to Google Glass users.

CityRide's 'lead hustler' Katy Kasmai wants to position their technology as "the preferred Google Glass app for Citi Bike." The founder of Glass NYC and notes that wearing the Google Glasses allows cyclists to be safe and keep their hands on the handlebars, rather than reaching into a pocket or similar to grab their mobile phone.
