Tesla Owners Get Their Own Google Glass App

 Two circles of a Venn diagram that likely don’t overlap. Much. But that hasn’t stopped Sahas Katta from developing an app for Glass that gives Tesla owners some basic control over their all-electric sled.

Katta had access to a Model S owned by a family member and reverse-engineered the official Tesla app for Android to run on Google Glass.

That means the functionality is limited to what Tesla baked into its original app, but it’s a solid start.

Katta’s Glass app allows users to view the amount of juice and charging status, remotely start and stop charging, and pop open the charge port. Locking and unlocking the doors is also included, as well as being able to honk the horn and flash the lights.
