Google Glass might be the butt of jokes in the consumer space, but companies are still showing interest based on Google’s new program, Glass at Work.
Today, Google announced the first round of Glass at Work Certified Partners. Hundreds of developers applied for the program, but Google chose just five to be inaugural partners.
Here’s the first five companies chosen for Glass at Work.
