Fidelity Labs, a unit of Fidelity Investments, announced Monday that it has launched a Market Monitor app for Glass, Google's wearable computer.
The app delivers quotes from major U.S. stock indexes.
"We encourage investors to join with us and offer their insights and feedback on emerging technologies, such as the Fidelity Market Monitor for Glass, our first step in exploring the potential of wearable computing," Sean Belka, Fidelity's senior vice president and director of its center for applied technology, said in a press release.
The financial services company is relying on beta testers to provide feedback on the software -- giving Fidelity the chance to refine future iterations of the technology.
