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.

That may soon change, though, with some help from the jailbreak community.  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

The latest in a series of patents for Google Glass provides a little more insight into the design of the hotly-tipped product.
