Technology continues its relentless forward progress, and nowhere is this trend more apparent than the auto industry. Mobile device integration is one of the hottest areas of development in the industry, and Hyundai hopes to be on the cutting edge with its Google Glass integration in the 2015 Hyundai Genesis Sedan.

The controversial wearable device, which has been banned from some clubs and dining establishments for its perceived invasion of privacy, is nonetheless slowly inching its way into the mainstream. Hyundai is hoping to appeal to these technological trend-setters with Google Glass integration with its BlueLink telematics integration system in the 2015 Genesis. Among the features and capabilities that will be enabled by the integration are remote start, service reminders and scheduling. Other features include remote door locking and unlocking, and point-of-interest send-to-car.

The integration of Google Glass is the next step for Hyundai's BlueLink system, with capability currently installed in most 2013 and newer Hyundai models, as well as associated smartphone apps for iOS and Android devices. Hyundai was also a technological early-adopter by offering iPads with the first of its Equus luxury sedans, effectively replacing the traditional printed owner's manual. Although the Equus no longer offers an iPad owner's manual, it continues to offer service and maintenance pickup and drop-off for the first three years.
