Glass Tesla App Reveals Future Developer Opportunities
In his article posted on Minyanville, Jake Barach reports app developer Sahas Katta has created the Glass Tesla app for Google Glass that can manage the car manufacturer's Tesla S model climate, lock and unlock doors, open the sunroof, locate and track the vehicle, start and stop charging, and display gas mileage.

Of particular interest is the usage of the Google glasses to enhance the driving experience in a way that smartphones cannot, as Katta is quoted as saying, "I'm very much convinced that driving with Glass is significantly safer than touching a smartphone…You can reply with your voice without having to lift a finger. You'll never have to take your hands off the wheel, move your head, or take your eyes off the road."

With the ability to allow multiple devices to communicate through Bluetooth, could we see the auto industry aggressively focus on creating their own apps that can be used by vehicles and third party smart technology, developing revenues streams outside the vehicle mobile architecture?
