KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City’s company Engage Mobile has been given four pairs of Google Glass-2, and the challenge of brainstorming what the glasses can really do.

Hundreds of thousands submitted their ideas for what they’d do if with Google Glass. Only a fraction of those interested are now testing ideas.

Engage Mobile has brainstormed everything from using the pricey hi-tech glasses in the operating room, to helping an engineer fix broken machinery thousands of miles away.

“We went and brought together leaders in many different industries including healthcare, construction, education, sports and we brought people together to kind of explore ideas of what could you do with these devices,” said Darrin Clawson C.E.O, and Founder of Engage Mobile.

“Imagine there’s a facilities management situation where there’s a machine that’s broken and the expert that developed that machine is let’s say in Germany. Basically the glass allows the technician in Germany to see exactly what you’re seeing,” said Matthew Barksdale, President of Engage Mobile.

The company already helps businesses take advantage of the latest technology, partly through building apps.

Engage Mobile got its first pair of google glass three months ago. The additional three pair they received are allowing them to expand development and testing, so it will be interesting to see what all they come up with.
