Using Google Glasses in the Kitchen

A recent patent application shows a cool possible use for Google Glass…controlling appliances in your kitchen.  It’d use the camera in the Glasses to determine which appliance you’re looking at (either object recognition, or perhaps ugly QR codes plastered all over your kitchen), and if the appliance has enough built in connectivity, a command could then be sent to the appliance.  The application is broader than just kitchen appliances, as it reflects how this technology could be used in many aspects of your life.  Conceivably, knobs, switches, and keypads could all become obsolete.
