In this paper, the authors outline a vision for the future of mobile usability, workflow and safety testing. The authors argue for the use of glasses that can audio and video record usability, workflow and safety data. Here, citizens, patients and health professionals would become collectors of study data as they use mobile devices and software to support healthcare in the real world. This has become quite feasible with the introduction of low-cost glasses and software applications that allow for the uploading of data for additional analysis by researchers and evaluators of mobile technologies.
