If I owned a Tesla, I would be more careful to hack the system. But sometimes, it really pays to take a risk and just do what you think you need to do. Some Tesla owner allowed another family member to reverse-enginer the Tesla app for Android to run on Google Glass and test it on a Model S.
Sahas Katta was able to develop another app for the Google Glass to control a Tesla car. This brings Google Glass to a higher level. It goes to show that you can do a lot with the Google Glass. This Tesla-Google Glass app is limited but imagine the possibilities developers can do in the near future.
The Glass app developed by Sahas Katta can start and stop charging the car remotely, display amount of power, charging status, lock/unlock doors, flash the lights, honk the horn, and open the charge port. So much you can do with the app, of course, if you own a Tesla Model S yourself.
The Google Glass functions are limited to what the Tesla app already offers so don’t expect much. Of course, anyone can still add to what the app can do.
