House Hunter App Coming to Google Glass

DAILY REAL ESTATE NEWS | FRIDAY, JUNE 14, 2013

Trulia has developed an app for Glass, Google’s augmented-reality glasses.  The app is designed to display property listings right before the eyes of the wearer.

The Trulia for Glass app will also let them know when they are close to an open house that matches their search criteria, even providing directions to the home.  Additionally, it will let them contact the real estate agent and can read a property description out loud.

“The idea is to provide just enough fresh information that is personalized for me and relevant to my location,” says Jeff McConathy of Trulia.  “It’s a very different experience than having your head buried in your phone while the world passes by.”

The app is slated for release in July.
