KANSAS CITY, Missouri (AP) — Google has selected a Kansas City company to test Google Glass, the search giant’s wearable computer device.

Engage Mobile will join other Google Glass testers. The goal is to prepare Google Glass for launch next year.

Engage Mobile is a mobile strategy, development and marketing firm. Founder and CEO Darrin Clawson says it was chosen because of its experience developing software for medical industry companies like Cerner Corp. Google’s test also involves coming up with software applications for Google Glass.

Clawson says he’s proposed using the eye-glass like device to help patients and doctors monitor personal medical devices like heart rate monitors.
