Online casinos have come a long way since the first Internet casino was created back in 1995. Now you can play a whole heap of roulette variants for free or for real money from a desktop computer or on the go from a mobile device.
With Apple iGlass on the scene, we’re eager to see what this means for the virtual casino world. Apple iGlass combined with online real money gambling is new ground, so there isn’t a vast amount of information available. While we don’t yet know what impact Apple iGlass will have on how we play roulette on the Internet, here is what we know so far, and where we think roulette on Apple iGlass is headed.
What is Apple iGlass?
Apple iGlass isn’t yet a product on the market, or a product yet to be confirmed by Apple as an upcoming project. However, there has been a lot of talk that Apple has had iGlass, a product similar to Google Glass, in the works for years.
In late 2013, one of Apple’s former executives confirmed that Apple had a comparable Google Glass product that had been under development as early as 2006. Recently, though, speculation has begun grown that Apple’s own version of Google Glass is set to be released, or at least officially announced, sometime in the near future.
How iGlass works
Google Glass is one of the most advanced pieces of wearable technology. They look like a pair of glasses with a touch pad on the right arm of the glasses that helps you control the device. Information and apps on Google Glass are displayed in a similar format to a smartphone. It is assumed that when Apple iGlass is released it will work in a similar way.
It’s rumoured that Apple’s iGlass will be more like a visor rather than standard glasses to help create more of a theatre effect when you utilise them. When Apple’s former executive, Tony Fadell, leaked comments about the upcoming iGlass he also said that it would be more centred around its functionality and would be closer to a smartphone than Google Glass.
However, Apple is yet to release the actual iGlass product, so we’ll just have to sit tight and see what Apple has in store for us.
Can I play roulette with Apple iGlass?
At the moment there are only a limited number of games you can play on Google Glass. There are Mini Games for Google Glass, GlassCopter and Glass Hunt. The games available on Google Glass are quite limited when you compare them to the endless number of gaming apps that you can download onto a smartphone. Having said that new Google Glass gaming apps are continually being developed.
Recently the first blackjack app for Google Glass was launched. We’re sure that more and more casino game applications will be developed. Roulette is a very popular casino classic so there will probably be an app for roulette coming some time soon, or a broader virtual casino app that covers a range of games.
Since iGlass has not yet been launched, you obviously can’t play roulette on it yet. However, once iGlass is released it won’t be long before you’re able to play roulette through your iGlass device. If iGlass becomes more of a mainstream device than Google Glass, it’s even more likely that you’ll be able to play real money virtual casino games on iGlass, as more effort will be put into creating apps that are compatible with iGlass.
What will iGlass mean for how we play roulette?
There is no clear answer for how iGlass will affect how we play roulette in the future, we are simply left to speculate on and dream about the possibilities. The interactive features of iGlass may mean that there will be new ways of playing roulette. Or perhaps iGlass will be able to create an even more immersive virtual casino experience that is authentic and entertaining in a way we’ve not yet experienced. It will undoubtedly change the way we play roulette when we’re out and about and will create new virtual gaming experiences.
When will iGlass be released?
At this point it’s difficult to predict when Apple’s iGlass will be up for grabs. It was previously thought that Apple’s iGlass would be released not long after its Apple Watch as its follow up piece of impressive wearable technology, sometime in early 2015. Apple has kept quiet on the subject lately – but iGlass and a quality roulette are not too far off being ready for the public to buy.
