Devaiah is said to be the first person in Asia to have received the Google Glass. His company is making an app for the tiny wearable gadget that will identify the location of wearer and match it with the geo-tagged database of panoramic photos that had been uploaded by users.

His company Teliportme caught attention after its 360 app that allows users to create panoramic photos on their Android phones. To do this users just had to open the app and pan the device around. The phone will take pictures and the app will then stitch the images to give a panoramic view. Currently there are 3-4 million images uploaded on its database by users.

Devaiah said its new app is different from what the car-mounted Street View cameras of Google capture. He added, “Unlike Street View that ran into regulatory hurdles, the new app crowd-sources images.”

In 2011 Google had offered $15-20 million range to acquire Teleportme.
