Google Glass is still a technology very much in its infancy, looking for the specific utilities and features thatll make it useful to a broader market than the developers and enthusiasts who are currently experimenting with the device. One of those developers is Patrick Jackson of Rocky Mount, North Carolina — the Glassware apps hes building arent going to be the ones to make Glass a widely-accepted consumer device, but despite that, hes building out a specific, potentially life-saving use case for Googles wearable. While Jackson may code and build apps during his downtime, his day job sees him battling fires as part of Rocky Mounts fire department — and hes building apps designed to save firefighters time and make their work a little bit faster, something thatll hopefully save lives. Those two apps are working now, but hes also building out two more that are a bit more intriguing.
