My two favorite technology products of 2013 were both from Google: Glass and Chromecast.

Their Glass app, LynxFit, is an amazing Glassware that helps motivate users to work out by providing notifications and reminders, as well as training programs, directly on Glass.

I spoke with Glass Explorer Adam Singer about his ideas.
