GoPro can succeed where Google Glass failed by keeping it simple. A Good Camera with Wifi & Voice commands capability for Hands free experience sounds really simple but it’s very useful and desired. Calls, Messages, directions, etc are excellent features that complicate the device, usage and Cost. Also, it’s a big distraction. Staying away from being creepy is a big thing in current world. The WOW factor can be achieved by keeping it simple. Simple features will motivate and entice GoPro users to easily capture their kid’s special movements. It will become a habit.
