Technology continues to revolutionize the practice of dermatology, and the past decades have seen a paradigm shift in the way dermatologists practice medicine and surgery, deliver care to patients, and keep abreast of developments in our field. Google Glass (Google Inc) is a recently developed, first-in-class wearable computer that includes an optical display, camera, microphone, bone-conduction speaker, touchpad, gyroscope, and accelerometer. I have used the Google Glass device in the context of general and surgical dermatology.
