Google Glass Explorer Program Is Dead

Today Google announced the winding down of its Glass Explorer program.  As you may know, this is the program where early adopters paid $1,500 for the privilege of looking like a cyborg while wearing experimental Google Glass. Though Google claims Glass is still on track for a consumer version (at some unknown time in the future), project prospects appear dim.


I Just Filled Out a Google Glass Survey, And …

When the option to purchase the Google Glass Explorer Edition was made available to me, I jumped in with both feet — completely disregarding the fact that I was paying $1500 to be a beta tester of roughly $80 worth of electronics (as it turns out). Dan bought in, too, and then we both decided Glass wasn’t for us.


9 Reasons the Samsung Gear 2 is Google Glass Minus the Glasshole

Judie and I bought Google Glass a few months ago. We enjoyed taking pictures and shooting video with them, but post-CES 2014 we sold ours. The reason? Glass is fun and innovative, but it’s not ready for prime time. My Samsung Galaxy S5 and Gear 2 are. Yes, Gear is Google Glass without the glasshole. Here are nine reasons why.




Google Glass Goes iOS with Release of MyGlass for iPhone

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.


Chanting Torah – Technology Meets Tradition #throughglass

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.


GazerGlass Adds 1500mAh to Google Glass’s Puny Battery

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!


GPOP Makes Wearing Your Google Glass Even More of a Spectacle

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.





Google’s Project Glass is Tech You Should Know About

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 Boy console from…
