RedBottle Design Brings GlassPay Purchasing App for Google Glass, Android, and Bitcoins to DEMO Fall 2013

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/16/13 -- RedBottle Design today introduces GlassPay™, an app for Google Glass and Android platforms that replicates an online buying experience in brick-and-mortar stores, and makes purchasing secure and simple in restaurants, supermarkets, and other stores that already accept bitcoins as currency.

GlassPay debuts at the DEMO 2013 Conference taking place October 15-17, 2013, at the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara, Calif. DEMO is world-renowned for launching the most promising, cutting-edge companies in enterprise, consumer, mobile, social, health and hardware technologies.

"With GlassPay, we're taking one of the most basic cultural experiences, the act of purchasing items, and bringing it into the future," said Guy Paddock, CEO of RedBottle Design, LLC. "Bitcoins are gaining significant acceptance in the world-wide marketplace, and we know that face-to-face, app-based shopping and purchasing is in the next wave. We're ready for it." GlassPay allows both shoppers and merchants to enjoy frictionless and economical sales transactions: when in a retail environment, Google Glass and Android users simply scan UPC codes, assemble a "shopping cart", make the purchase using bitcoins, and pick up merchandise in a centralized location.

GlassPay embraces bitcoins, an innovative, secure payment network and a new kind of money that uses peer-to-peer technology to operate. Bitcoins have no central authority or banks, so there are no additional fees charged to either purchasers or retailers.

Customer Benefits No wallet, no waiting: with GlassPay, users simply bring their Android smartphone or wear their Google Glass device into a store, scan items, and make purchases right from where they stand. There's no need to carry a wallet or wait in line. Get more control: a GlassPay shopping cart is created in real time, so users can budget more effectively -- they'll know exactly how much the total will be, automatically. Secure information: with GlassPay, a customer's virtual bitcoin wallet is controlled by password and bitcoins can be sent only by the customer. Unlike cash, bitcoins are difficult to lose, steal, or misplace. And unlike credit card information, with bitcoins a seller has no sensitive information on file that can be compromised.

Retailer Benefits: No fee transactions: GlassPay makes it easier to accept bitcoins as payment, which translates into higher margins and lower costs of doing business. Small merchant adoption: street and kiosk vendors can serve more customers, more quickly -- users will simply grab, scan, pay, and go with minimal interaction. Saves valuable floor space: big box merchants can conserve precious retail space by keeping inventory in a central warehouse instead of on the sales floor. Interactive purchasing experiences: retailers can create dynamic displays that engage customers for a more entertaining and enriching shopping experience. Effortless analytics and suggestive selling: merchants can track what customers view as well as buy, in much the same way that online stores do currently. Offering a similar product or different colors or sizes could lead to increased purchasing opportunities.

Attendees at DEMO 2013 will be the first to experience shopping with GlassPay for Android, released on the Play marketplace. The full platform, including GlassPay for Android and Google Glass, is expected to be in the Play marketplace and Glass Boutique respectively, in the second quarter of 2014, after Google Glass becomes publicly available.

Sellers who are interested in using the GlassPay platform should contact RedBottle Design at 1-855-444-2675 to discuss installation and integration options and pricing.

RedBottle will provide a live, four-minute demonstration of GlassPay on the DEMO Fall 2013 stage at Thursday, October 17, 2013 at 11:05 a.m. and will host live demonstrations beginning today at Booth #D27 in the DEMO Fall 2013 pavilion.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
