We’ve seen helmet cams in football, in NASCAR in-car videos, and as point of view from other sports, but never bowling. Bowling is harder to video this way, as the bowler usually doesn’t wear headgear; with Google Glass this is now possible. PBA’s Jason Belmonte recorded rolling a 297 in the Tournament of Champions qualifier while wearing Glass.Read more
I just returned from leading a ten day trip to Israel. While there, we spent time in Tel Aviv, made our way up to the Golan Heights (we even looked into Syria), and then spend time in Jerusalem. I captured much of the trip #throughglass and… I’m impressed with the quality of the images and videos. Here’s a look.Read more
After a brief appearance earlier this week Google’s MyGlass app has made the official jump to iOS. That’s great news for Glass-wearing iPhone-users since it means more functionality than iOS-users previously enjoyed from Glass. That includes getting directions, capturing screencasts, and more. We’ll see how the iOS version stacks up over the next few days and report back.Read more
What does the world look like when captured through Google Glass? We’re taking a look at various things we do regularly. Yesterday I had one of my Bar Mitzvah students check out my Glass when he was practicing his chanting of Torah prior to becoming Bar Mitzvah this weekend. This is what chanting Torah looks like #throughglass.Read more
One thing I love about my Google Glass is that it takes better hands-free video than anything else I’ve seen. One thing I dislike is that in under 40 minutes of shooting video, without some kind of external battery pack, Glass’s battery will die. For $50, GazerGlass adds a 1500 mAh battery to the skinnier Glass arm. Not too shabby!
When I ordered my Google Glass, I stuck with the relatively boring Charcoal (black), and I’ll admit that there have been times when I wish that I’d been a little bit more adventurous with my color choice. Now I have no regrets, because GPOP has $9.99 Glass skins that can make my spectacles appear as wild as my mood.
Other than looking like a tool, the main thing I really worry about when wearing Glass is how to best manage battery life, because it doesn’t take long before the battery withers — especially when filming video. PWRglass is a prototype product that aims to triple the Glass battery’s life. It looks like a lanyard and empowers Glass. Worth it?
Last week I placed my order for the second phase Google Glass Explorer Edition, and within two days they were in my hands. Since invitations to purchase the $1500 Glass are still limited, I figured I’d share the unboxing and initial set up experience.
Joe Stirt, an original Glass Explorer program participant, recently received three invitations he could share; he gave me one. That invite entitled me to purchase a second generation Google Glass device for $1500. Is the tech compelling enough for me to pay to be a beta tester for an unfinished product? I sure hope so — because I mine
What does ‘Augmented Reality‘ mean to you? It’s been a huge buzzword in certain tech circles this year, but what’s the big deal? If you’re like me, the negative associations are endless. You remember laser tag. You remember watching those awful 3D films with the red/blue lenses when you were little. Maybe you even remember Nintendo’s Virtual BoyRead more
