As if the completely electric, technology filled Teslas weren’t cool enough, the new cars now have Google Glass integration.

GlassTesla” lets users remotely access and manage their Tesla remotely using the Google Glass’ internet connection. Accessible features include climate control, the ability to lock and unlock the car, and even allows use of the GPS.

According to the LA Times, the app was developed by Sashas Katta. Katta, who at 24 has already founded two tech companies, developed the app in just a few days.

Although only a lucky few possess both a Tesla and Google Glass (just 25 people activated the app with their vehicle), 300,000 people viewed the website in just 24 hours, according to an interview with Katta in the LA Times.

Additionally, Katta said that the high barrier for entry won’t last long. As the technology gets cheaper, these new products will enter the mainstream and will be widely accessible, much like the iPhone.
