While Google Glass remains a subject of mockery in the consumer realm, the wearable computing glasses continue to push forward with applications designed for businesses. 

On Monday Google announced the first round of Glass at Work Certified Partners, a program of Google-authorized companies selected to build enterprise solutions for Glass. The companies also become eligible for co-branding and listing on the Glass at Work website.

Google said hundreds of developers applied for the program, and it appears the Internet search giant settled on a pretty broad mix of industry segments, ranging from medical and media to sports and entertainment. The inaugural partners include APX, Augmedix, Crowdoptic, GuidiGO, and Wearable Intelligence.

APX Labs makes Skylight, a business software app for Glass; AugMedix markets a service for doctors that streamlines communication with electronic medical records; CrowdOptic makes context-aware applications for the sports, entertainment and medical industries; GuidiGo aims to make museums and cultural institutions more connected; and Wearable Intelligence creates workflow, communications, training, and data access products.
