Aira is an assistance app that will use a device such as Google Glass in conjunction with an iOS or Android phone, and will connect the user to a professionally trained agent. In this interview J.J. talks with Michael Hingson and Austin Marron about the project, and discusses scenarios from sifting through legal documents to navigating airports with the help of Aira. Subscriptions will start at around $9 per month, and the service will roll out later this year.
