Google Glass and the future of event planning

People love attending great events but often, once they are there, think little about all the hard work that has gone into preparing the site and elements for the big night. However, planning your event requires a wealth of organization skills to promote a successful date. On the competitive scene of South Florida, just acquiring a venue in Miami that meets all your needs takes a true commitment to parsing the value of each one that is available. Having a good team around you will only go so far if you do not have things in order for yourself.

Using event planning tools is vital in today’s connected world of social media and mobile technology. People look to their smart phone for updates regarding the topics that interest them and these numbers are only going to rise. As time goes by more technology is becoming integrated to this "internet of things" such as our cars, watches and TV. Soon many of us will be walking around with a collection of tools that enable us to perform tasks that otherwise would have taken a desktop computer. In some cases there is no prior equivalent product on the market.


Google Glass is a new offering from the tech giant that has been getting a mountain of press over the last 6 months. The question is, how can it help manage your date at an event space in Miami? Well, first this is a wearable technology too! They are essentially Internet capable glasses. So, as opposed to hawking your cell phone all the time, interrupting conversations or becoming totally distracted by a new email message, we can have a constant flow of data that is directly in view at all times. While some people might imagine this to be the next step towards Borg singularity it just might be the tool you have always wanted as an event planner or event promoter.

Iron Man 3 and Google Glass

Iron Man 3 is available to watch at cinemas nation wide today. Iron Man 3 is the most anticipated movie from Marvel Studios since The Avengers, which grossed $1,511,757,910 at the box office. Where better to film Marvel's Iron Man 3 than in Wynwood Miami. This new Iron Man move picks up where Tony Stark left off after saving the human race from Thanos. Robert Downey Jr. comes back as Stark, with Gwyneth Paltrow and wing man Don Cheadle, returnign as Pepper Potts and Colonel James Rhodes.

A lot has changed since Iron Man 2 and there are more tech toys for Stark to play with including more Iron Man suits that fly by them selves. Whats also really cool is the suits ability to grab on to Stark and assemble in mid air.

In this Iron Man 3 movie something else comes to light that hasn't been considered before. Did the Iron Man franchise act as a catalyst to produce wearable tech? It is clear that movies play a a big role with the invention of new technologies. For example, Nike produced the wearable wrist band that measures the amount of steps and calories you burn. However Google took wearable tech to a whole new level with Google Glass. In Iron Man 3, Stark's heads up display is inside his suit with the ability to search the internet, make telephone calls and defeat Aliens at the same time.

Google glass has brought wearable heads up technology to the masses with Google Glass explorers addition and will hopefully allow everyone else to buy them by the end of 2013. You can see Google glass potential by watching this video.

In some ways Google glass may be better that Stark's Iron Man suit because with Google Glass you don't have to wear a suit!

Iron Man 3 will surely be a summer blockbuster and may break box office records.
