Google Glass Apps - Sherwin Williams & Philips

As more and more people get their hands on Google Glass we'll begin seeing a brands developing apps for Glass as a way to (literally) get closer to their customers.  Two recent (and very different) examples come to mind.  The first is from Sherwin Williams as an addition to their existing ColorSnap suite of applications.  While the use case here is a bit ambitious, it's still nice to see a relatively low interest brand devising ways that they can provide genuine utility to their customers.  Check it out below.

The second example comes from Philips Healthcare.  The video is a proof of concept demonstrating how Glass could integrate with their existing IntelliVue patient monitoring system and shows how surgeons could potentially use Glass in the operating theatre and beyond.  Very cool.
