As far as tech titles go, NBA’s Sacramento King is the first sports franchise to broadcast a professional basketball game using Google Glass. Further, the team has also embraced the use of Bitcoins. Fans can now purchase goods inside its retail store in Sacramento. Online purchases of tickets and merchandise will begin in March.
For those looking to see the first game experience using the Glass, tune in this week on January 24, for the Sacramento Kings vs. Indiana Pacers. You’ll see game perspectives from select players, mascots, and dancers. Here’s a preview:
Google Glass may prohibit sexually explicit content, but it hasn’t prevented creative and horny folks from developing adult-friendly apps for the wearable computer. The new app proposal is called Sex with Google Glass, wherein two glass users can view each other’s perspective using Glass. The app also can be enlisted to dim the lights, put on some steamy tunes, and also offer advice – like a real-time Karma Sutra tutor.
Just say “ok glass, it’s time” and Glass will stream what you see to each other. And if you feel like stopping everything, just ask: “ok glass, pull out”. Read more
The latest Google experiment takes on the diabetes epidemic with smart contact lens, prototype that detects real-time glucose levels using tears and LED lights.
We’re now testing a smart contact lens that’s built to measure glucose levels in tears using a tiny wireless chip and miniaturized glucose sensor that are embedded between two layers of soft contact lens material. We’re testing prototypes that can generate a reading once per second. We’re also investigating the potential for this to serve as an early warning for the wearer, so we’re exploring integrating tiny LED lights that could light up to indicate that glucose levels have crossed above or below certain thresholds.

The latest Chrome update for Android includes some great improvements for browsers, particularly an option to reduce mobile data usage through data compression and bandwidth management. Users can save up to 50% of data usage by enabling the data compression feature in their chrome browser, which uses a Google proxy server.
The core optimizations that allow us to reduce overall data usage are performed by Google servers. When the Data Compression Proxy feature is enabled, Chrome Mobile opens a connection between your phone and one of the optimization servers running in Google’s datacenters and relays all non-encrypted HTTP requests over this connection.

So thank you, librarians, real and virtual. This video is for you.
Video chats can be a great way to communicate, but it often leaves you feeling a little lazy in the process. How many of us are half-aware of our posturing while wearing PJs? If you’re looking to improve your conversation skills on video chats, look no further.
