Google Glass

Glass has been in a closed beta for 'Explorers' since 2012, but will they cross over into ...

One of the perks of writing about technology and innovation is the opportunity to get your hands on all sorts of new products, usually made by folks with a vision of how their new gadget will change the world. The downside of this privilege, however, is the knowledge that many perfectly fantastic products will never become household names, no matter how deserving they might be. With that in mind, I wanted to pay tribute to five products that, unfortunately, I fear only total nerds like myself will ever truly fall in love with.  Read More

Press and certain members of the public have attended special events to try Glass

When will regular consumers be able to purchase Google Glass?

Field Trip is a Google Glass app that notifies Glass wearers of nearby historical and prac...

It isn't hard to imagine how useful Google Glass could be. But so far that usefulness has been mostly limited to our imaginations. That's party because very few people own the wearable device, but it's also because its pre-launch laundry list of capabilities is still pretty short. However, a new port of the iOS and Android app Field Trip gives us a clearer glimpse of just how much of an impact Glass could have on our lives ... for better or worse.  Read More

You probably don't have Google Glass. Very few people who aren't developing software for the upcoming device do.

iPhone-owning Google Glass owners may soon be able to get notifications ... as long as the...

Only a select few already have Google Glass in their hands ... or, rather, on their faces. But if you are an early owner of Glass, you’re much better off with an Android phone, as an iPhone can do little more than route calls to the smartglasses. That may soon change, though, with some help from the jailbreak community.  Read More

Google shed some light on the tech specs of its smartglasses, Google Glass

New smartphones and tablets always create a stir. But let’s be honest: most of them are relatively minor updates. They don’t compare with the launch of an entirely new product category. That’s why there’s so much buzz around Google Glass. You get the sense that it might be something entirely new that changes the game. Today we have more info about Glass, after Google released the tech specs of its upcoming smartglasses.  Read More

Google's augmented reality spectacles have been shown-off at SXSW

Google Glass isn't yet publicly available, but it already has apps functional enough to be demonstrated to a live capacity crowd of developers and curious folks in a ballroom at the South By Southwest in Austin, Texas today. Timothy Jordan, Google's senior developer advocate for Glass, showed off the augmented reality spectacles running apps for Gmail, Evernote and the New York Times in a highly technical presentation that covered some guidelines and even some of the code involved to develop apps for Glass.  Read More

Google reportedly hasn't yet figured out how to incorporate prescription lenses into its s...

If we’re to believe the stereotypes, nerds and glasses go hand in hand. Hollywood teaches us that a pair of specs is all it takes to transform a stunning actor or actress into an awkward wallflower, or a mighty superhero into a clumsy dweeb. If there’s any truth to this cliché, then some of Google’s most tech-savvy customers may have to wait a bit longer than the general population to enjoy Google Glass.  Read More
