hyundai-genesis-google-glass-1.JPGWe suppose it was simply a matter of when (rather than 'if') wearable technology would infiltrated automobiles, and apparently that time has come. Hyundai has just announced that its new-for-2015 Genesis Sedan will be compatible with Google Glass thanks to its Blue Link infotainment system.

"As a leader in connected car technology, we're always exploring new ways to use technology to enhance the ownership experience for our customers. Wearables are a great way to extend the experience outside of the vehicle by leveraging these small screens to quickly access remote features and deliver timely vehicle information," said Barry Ratzlaff, the executive director of Customer Connect and Service Business Development for Hyundai.

Customers will need to download a Blue Link Glassware app to manage their new Genesis, but once that's sorted, owners will be treated to little "cards" that pop up on the Google Glass interface. Push notifications will show when maintenance is due and customers will even be able to schedule service via Glass. Features like remote start, remote locking and a vehicle finder will also be available, while points of interest will be selectable and loadable into the navigation system via Google Send-to-Car.

"In 2013, we saw millions of commands sent to Hyundai vehicles from our Blue Link mobile application," said Ratzlaff. "As new screens emerge, we see a real opportunity to expand our app strategy to provide added convenience for our owners."

Of course, on some level, this new compatibility presupposes that using Google Glass and similar technologies while driving is legal - and that's something that's clearly up for debate right now on local, state, and federal levels.

Either way, there's a short press release from Hyundai below, highlighting some of the features and benefits of having Google Glass in the Genesis. Scroll down to take a look.

Thought this was going to be something different... nothing really that amazing, just really updating their current app for use on Google Glass. Feel like this is a waste of an article...
