It seems that the sky’s the limit when it comes to what Google Glass is capable of, and Virgin Atlantic Airlines will be putting its abilities to the test, along with some other wearable technologies to improve its services.
Google Glass will be used to help Virgin Atlantic staff greet Upper Class passengers by name and provide access to a flier’s details. In the future, it is expected that Google Glass will bring other improvements to customer service, such as information on what the weather will be like during the flight and the dietary preferences of a traveller.
Virgin Atlantic is also introducing its staff to the Sony SmartWatch2, which will be used just like Google Glass to provide a more personalized experience for travellers.
