    An Awkward First Date Shot Through Google Glass

    We as humans are terrible at expressing our desires. You never quite know what’s going on in someone’s head. We’re not so different from Google Glass in that way. It’s tough to tell what’s someone’s doing in that little prism screen. This short film combines the awkwardness of dating with the overly-intimate nature of Google’s face computer. But it… Read More

    Google Wallet Is Coming To Glass

    Google Wallet is coming to Glass soon. According to a source close to the company, Google is currently testing a way for Glass users to send money to their friends through Wallet by simply using their voices to ask Glass to “send money.” The company is testing this service internally right now, but chances are it will launch to all Glass users in the near future.

    Sorry, But Google Glass Isn’t Actually For Sale To Everybody Yet

    Rumor has it that Google Glass is currently for sale to anybody in the United States. Sadly (or not — depending on your feelings about Glass), that’s not actually the case. While the Google Glass store is indeed open and seems to be taking orders (Update: all the models are sold out now), Google tells us that this isn’t the public launch of Glass to anybody who wants to… Read More

    Google Glass Adds Limited SMS Support For iPhone, Gets Calendar App

    Fresh off its update to Android KitKat, Google Glass is getting a couple of new features later this week. Until now, iPhone users with Glass weren’t able to receive text messages on their devices. Starting later this week, Google will roll out an update that will finally allow them to see text messages right in front of their right eyes. It will not, however, allow them to send text… Read More

  • Google I/O To Elevate Focus On Design

    Google I/O To Elevate Focus On Design

    For Google to win, it needs to attract the best designers to its team and get beautiful third-party apps built for its platforms. Yet, right now it’s Google’s rival Apple and the iOS ecosystem that are known for their style. So Google tells me it’s “doing a really big push around design” at its 2014 I/O conference by adding sessions on Android UX, wearable app… Read More

  • Ellen Tries Out Google “Glasses”

    Ellen Tries Out Google “Glasses”

    Today is Google Glass day. For the first time, the company is letting anybody and everybody order a pair with no application process needed. Because before, if you wanted to give Google $1,500 for a face computer, you had to qualify. Now that Google Glass is fair game, we’re probably going to see it a lot more. Take, for example, this episode of The Ellen Show, where Ellen Degeneres… Read More

    Google Actually Sells Out Of A Google Glass Model

    Apparently some people still want Google Glass. The white model sold out several hours after Google allowed anyone to purchase the product. Models of the other colors are still available — at least until Google stops selling the product tonight. For today only, Google made Glass available to anyone. This is the first time since the product’s announcement that Google has allowed… Read More

    If You Want Google Glass, Now’s Your Chance

    It’s been nearly a year since Google released the Google Glass face computer, and still only a select few have had access to the thing. But that’s all about to change. On Tuesday April 15 (perhaps to take your mind off of taxes), Google is opening up a new batch of Google Glass units to explorers, according to an email sent out to those who had signed up for more information on… Read More
