Google has announced the first official Glass developer partners, pulling together a collection of business and other software companies.
Google said it has been looking for suitable partners and is now ready to announce five of them. They promise to adapt Glass for a whole range of industries.
Google said in a Google+ post: "We've been searching for developers who are creating Glassware to help businesses reach their goals. We heard from hundreds of enterprise developers and today we're excited to announce our first round of Glass at Work Certified Partners. Congrats to APX, Augmedix, CrowdOptic, GuidiGO and Wearable Intelligence."
APX, which makes secure screen-sharing software called Skylight, is the most business-friendly option, and Glass wearers could use it to share up-to-the-minute information and images.
Another firm, Wearable Intelligence, also falls into this business camp, and Google said that its software is aimed at in-the-field workers and training systems. The other partners operate in medical, broadcast and travel and tourism industries.
Anyone can apply to be a Glass partner and Google offers a signup page for both developers and enterprises wanting to know more.
Enterprise support already exists and Google has willing testers at organisations including Virgin Atlantic and the New York Police Department. Individuals are also using the spectacles.
In May Google said wearers were taking the tools all over the world. "There have been a lot of firsts for Glass. But it all started with Explorers who took a leap of faith with us. They signed up to be Explorers before anyone really knew what Glass was," it said.
"Since then, Glass has gone all over the country and made its way onto roller coasters, into classrooms, on stage and so much more."
