In 2014, Google Glass will leave the testing roam and become available for consumers everywhere. The wearable tech from the search giant is the first of its kind and building hype as various industries race to use Glass to their advantage. The obvious players are there—social networks, photography, navigation—but real estate is already finding ways to use Glass in revolutionary ways.
The New York Times reports that Trulia, a popular real estate search app for smartphones, is working on a new app for Google Glass that will let users see listings and info as they walk down the street. Filters like budget, desired bedrooms and bathrooms, and amenities are set so Trulia will only alert you if a matching home is nearby. With its success, other real estate sites like Zillow or ForRent.com could follow with apps of their own.
