GlassPay™, which debuted at the DEMO 2013 Conference in October 2013, is an app for Google Glass and Android platforms that replicates an online buying experience in brick-and-mortar stores, and makes purchasing secure and simple in restaurants, supermarkets, and other stores that already accept bitcoins as currency.
GlassPay allows both shoppers and merchants to enjoy frictionless and economical sales transactions: when in a retail environment, Google Glass and Android users simply scan UPC codes, assemble a “shopping cart”, make the purchase using bitcoins, and pick up merchandise in a centralized location.
With GlassPay, users simply bring their Android smartphone or wear their Google Glass device into a store, scan items, and make purchases right from where they stand. There’s no need to carry a wallet or wait in line. A GlassPay shopping cart is created in real time, so users can budget more effectively—they’ll know exactly how much the total will be, automatically.
