Google names KC company to test Google Glasses

Google has selected a Kansas City company to test Google Glass, the search giant's wearable computer device.
The Kansas City Star reports that Engage Mobile will join other Google Glass testers. The goal is to prepare Google Glass for launch next year.

Engage Mobile is a mobile strategy, development and marketing firm. Founder and CEO Darrin Clawson said it was chosen because of its experience developing software for medical industry companies like Cerner Corp. Google's test also involves coming up with software applications for Google Glass.

Clawson said he's proposed using the eye-glass like device to help patients and doctors monitor personal medical devices like heart rate monitors.
