Forrester sees three main value propositions for Glass:
1. Removing friction
Quicker, easier, more convenient access to information (you don’t have to pull your smartphone out of your pocket all the time).
2. Making location-based information easier to access
Holding up a smartphone with an augmented-reality app is awkward, tiring, and geeky. Glass makes getting local data easy and unobtrusive without full AR.
3. Better audio — in quiet environments
Bone conduction sounds clear and has great audio quality in quiet environments, all without disrupting others who are nearby.
