Google Glass: Public Speaking Made Easier

It’s rare to find someone who enjoys public speaking or doesn’t find it at least a little nerve-racking. The researchers at the Human-Computer Interaction Group at the University of Rochester have created an application for Google Glass for smart points Rhema, designed to help people with public speaking.

It has two main pieces of software: client and server. The client runs on the Google Glass, and the server is designed to run on your computer. Rhema listens whilst you speak, and loads recorded voice to the server as it analyzes the tempo and volume of the voice, then it gives you feedback in real time. This can really help you out. If you speak too fast, the glass will display the command “slower”, if you speak too quiet, the glass will display the command “louder”, etc.

Scientists also believe that this app can help people with kinds of autism that affects their speech.
