10/29/2013, This year we have heard a lot of chatter about the future of wearable devices. We’ve seen a number of companies detail their smartwatches, many of them seeking to achieve their crowdfunding goals. We saw Samsung, Sony, Qualcomm and a few other major companies release their smartwatches. Google continued to make rounds with its Google Glass, which is expected to be released to the public next year. What about Microsoft […]
10/29/2013, Google Glass units have only been provided to a select few people called “Explorers,” who have been testing it out for quite some time now. Google has continued to refine the software with its monthly Glass updates, but it has now announced that updates to the hardware have also been made. Existing Glass Explorers will be able to “swap out” their existing units for new ones later this year. It […]
10/28/2013, There’s nothing wrong with the design of Google Glass, although we guess there are some who might prefer if it looked more “normal”, as it if it managed to blend with current eye-wear as opposed to looking like something out of a sci-fi movie. While the next version of Google Glass remains to be seen, Sean Percival decided that instead of waiting for Google to do something about it, he […]
10/27/2013, Here’s a crazy news. Apparently our favorite internet search giant is building a Google Glass Store in San Francisco Bay, this according to KPIX which claims that it has learnt that Google is building a “floating marketing center” just to promote its wearable gadget. Only recently a rather mysterious barge was spotted moored to Treasure Island, San Francisco. There’s a large structure built on top of the barge that’s raising obvious […]
10/24/2013, We’ve heard a number of consumer electronics companies have reportedly started to create their own version of Google Glass, with Microsoft being the latest company to allegedly throw their hat into the smart eyeglasses ring. According to The Wall Street Journal, another giant tech company seems to also be developing their own smart glasses, and it’s a company we’re sure you’ve heard of: Samsung.
10/22/2013, There are quite a few companies who are working on their own wearable technology similar to the Google Glass, and it appears Microsoft may be throwing their hat in the ring as well. According to a report published by the Wall Street Journal, Microsoft is in the process of testing prototypes for what is being described as “internet-connected eyewear,” which should obviously mean their own pair of Google Glass.
10/07/2013, Having a pair of Google Glass sitting right there in front of one’s eyes is definitely “cool”, as fashion and technology come together to ensure that life is a whole lot more convenient and easy. In fact, while Google Glass might be highly desirable, the extent of its working capabilities remain largely untapped since there isn’t a mature enough market right now. Well, we are pleased to say that Google […]
10/07/2013, Wearable tech is without a doubt the next frontier in technology and Google has been riding that wave for quite some time now. Google Glass has already been rolled out to a select few Explorers who are putting it through its paces before the anticipated public release next year. There appears to be a lot of interest in this product, which puts the digital world in the user’s line of […]
10/07/2013, If you’ve played as much Grand Theft Auto as we have, then you’re probably very familiar with the game’s mini-map that is prominently displayed at various corners of the screen, depending on which game you’re playing. The mini-map plays an important role in Grand Theft Auto as it helps guide players to their destination as well as informing them the location of enemies and police officers, but what if there was […]
09/26/2013, To date, it has been rather challenging for third party developers to roll out apps for Google Glass, but it seems that things are set to change with the introduction of the upcoming Google Glass XE10 update. This particular Google Glass XE10 update will offer code jockeys the necessary tools required for a third party developer to begin writing third party Glassware apps for the Google Glass platform. With this […]
09/17/2013, Metaio announced today that it has developed the first hands-free, marker-less augmented reality car manual on Google Glass, the prototype has been developed as a proof-of-concept of the capabilities of Metaio’s AR platform on wearable devices. The core technology and platform will both be updated to accommodate wearable devices from other manufacturers such as Epson and Vuzix. Up until now, AR technology has used point clouds or algorithms to recognize […]
09/15/2013, While Google Glass has yet to be made available to the masses on a commercial scale, this does not mean that everyone else has forgotten about it. No sir, that is not the case at all, and it goes without saying that when Google Glass is finally made available to the masses, it is going to be highly desirable. The question is this, does it have enough clout to support […]
09/10/2013, With Google prepping Google Glass for a commercial launch and push the device into the hands of consumers around the world, we’re sure Apple isn’t going to sit by and let that happen, are they? While we’re not sure what Apple’s plans are for such technology, it seems that at one point in time the Cupertino company did have a prototype in the works, but it apparently never caught on […]
09/10/2013, Google published an application for its Google Glass called MyGlass late last week that would allow Android users to be able to control their wearable device. Today, Google is rolling out a new update to Google Glass itself that will add a total of four new features to the wearable device. Today’s update to Google Glass will add sound search, photo vignettes and integration with both YouTube and Google Apps. The […]
