L’Oreal’s famed hair stylist, George Papanikolas, will be donning a pair of the smart eyewear from Google to teach beauty school students. The program is part of the Matrix Class for Glass, a three part program for students to learn from celebrity stylists.
Using Google Glass technology and expertise from Matrix Celebrity Stylist, George Papanikolas and Matrix Artistic Director, Ammon Carver, intimate and in-depth tutorials will capture styling sessions directly from the eye of the stylist. These videos will offer a new and unique view from behind the chair and power the styling experience with unbounded technology. Read more
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
Word Lens is a remarkable app, worthy of sharing during the holidays when you are stuck indoor with a bunch of relatives on Thanksgiving or Christmas. The phone app gives real time translation using phone cameras – you don’t even need a network connection. Just hold the camera up to a foreign phrase and it will magically transform it into something recognizable.
Naturally, we love the app’s ability to help us during travels, but it’s also a great candidate for Google Glass. Now, the app and Google glass can help you do real-time translation without hold up a phone. It’s as simple as looking. Watch this video demonstration for yourself.
Google unveiled the new music features Tuesday along with earbuds that come in five colors. A Glass wearer can simply issue a few verbal commands to call up music through Google Play. It also allows for a Shazam like experience where you can ask Google to identify a song that is playing within earshot.
(Check out the Google video below with DJ Young Guru to see the latest Glass feature.)
Google sent out an email today to people who expressed interest in Google Glass early on confirming that its new web-enabled eyewear is almost ready to ship.
“We’ve been working hard on the Glass Explorer Edition and we have great news: the hardware and software are now ready for you,” reads the email. “We’re seeing the first few devices come off the production line right now.”
Only a portion of the devices are available today, but Google will be letting people know as their device comes off of the production line.
Here is more about how the glasses work from Google: “Information on Google Glass is separated into items on a timeline. The timeline contains items or “cards” that display information to the user. Users navigate through their timeline by swiping backwards and forwards on Glass, revealing cards in the past and future.”
Google Glass has been hyped, lampooned and heckled, but one comment that I’ve heard the most is that the abilities shown off in the video were rather limited.
The following video takes the same idea and goes several steps further, and in at least one creepy direction. The concept device in this video isn’t quite the same as Google’s gadget. This one is based around contact lenses, not a pair of eyeglasses, but it still builds on the same general idea of giving the user information based on what is going on around them.
