Destinia Develops Google Glass Hotel Reservation App (VIDEO)

Destinia and Glob3Mobile have collaborated to develop "Hotel Near Me," a new hotel reservation app for Google Glass. 

The app enables users to find the nearest hotels based on their GPS position. By swiping the side of the glasses, users can scroll through the list, and filter them by price. With a click on the hotel, the glasses read out a brief description of the hotel and allows users to view photos. Users can reserve the hotel with Destinia via the glasses and then the app guides them to the hotel door.

"Technology is revolutionizing tourism, making the traveler's day-to-day life easier and easier. Companies like ours must always be on the cutting edge, anticipating our clients' needs," said Destinia CEO Amuda Goueli. The app is currently on Google's internal platform, awaiting final approval. 

"We are working to perfect the augmented reality, which allows users to find hotels in their immediate vicinity. And in the future, this application will have many more features. For example, users will be able to refine their searches with additional voice commands," said Manuel de la Calle, co-founder of Glob3 Mobile, a company that specializes in multi-platform mobile applications. The app will even be able to recognize users who are existing Destinia clients, displaying their reservation information and informing them on all the past reservations the agency has handled for them.
