    Mercedes-Benz integrating Google Glass into its cars

    Google Glass may be the must have accessory for nerds of the moment, but it could play the same role for luxury car owners soon.
    The Silicon Valley Business Journal reports that Mercedes-Benz is working to integrate the wearable computer with its in-car infotainment systems.
    The primary goal, according to the report, is to create a navigation system that seamlessly moves with the wearer from inside to outside the car.
    The idea is that you enter a destination when you leave home which then automatically transfers to the car’s built in system as you drive and back to the Glass when you get out of the car, allowing for walking directions to your final destination.
    Glass currently offers navigation when tethered to a smartphone, but using it requires that you wear the device the entire time.
