Engage Mobile, a Kansas City-based mobile strategy, development and marketing company, will be testing Google Glass with the goal of preparing the much-anticipated product for a 2014 launch, said Darrin Clawson, Engage Mobile’s founder and chief executive.

Google Glass is essentially a smart pair of glasses, a wearable computer device with a tiny prism display that sits just above its wearer’s eyeline. The voice-controlled glasses, expected to cost $1,500, have an embedded camera, microphone and GPS. 

Clawson said his company was chosen for the beta test because of his experience in developing software for the medical industry. Before founding Engage, Clawson worked at Cerner, the North Kansas City medical technology company. He has proposed using Google’s device to help patients and doctors monitor personal medical devices.
