It looks like will be ending it's Explorer program, which may or may not mean the product is done. I barely had my pair for a year, and didn't use it nearly as much as I should have (issues with contacts kept me in glasses for most of 2014). I was, and suppose still am, planning on using them more in 2015.
It was a pretty audacious project by , and I think it was a big win. It brought wearables to the forefront of our consciousness, and helped pave the way for the the next generation. It won't be considered a commercial success, but I don't know if that was ever the point.
So goodnight, sweet . May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.
I suppose I should look into getting a pair of stereo earbuds before they are gone. Any chance that the awesome folks on the team want to hook me up with a pair from the inventory? Anyone? Darn. Guess I'll need to buy a pair.
It’s hard to believe that Glass started as little more than a scuba mask attached to a laptop. We kept on it, and when it started to come together, we began the Glass Explorer Program as a kind of “open beta” to hear what people had to say.
Explorers, we asked you to be pioneers, and you took what we started and went further than we ever could have dreamed: from the large hadron collider at CERN, to the hospital operating table; the grass of your backyard to the courts of Wimbledon; in fire stations, recording studios, kitchens, mountain tops and more.
Glass was in its infancy, and you took those very first steps and taught us how to walk. Well, we still have some work to do, but now we’re ready to put on our big kid shoes and learn how to run.
Since we first met, interest in wearables has exploded and today it’s one of the most exciting areas in technology. Glass at Work has been growing and we’re seeing incredible developments with Glass in the workplace. As we look to the road ahead, we realize that we’ve outgrown the lab and so we’re officially “graduating” from Google[x] to be our own team here at Google. We’re thrilled to be moving even more from concept to reality.
As part of this transition, we’re closing the Explorer Program so we can focus on what’s coming next. January 19 will be the last day to get the Glass Explorer Edition. In the meantime, we’re continuing to build for the future, and you’ll start to see future versions of Glass when they’re ready. (For now, no peeking.)
Thanks to all of you for believing in us and making all of this possible. Hang tight—it’s going to be an exciting ride.
Yes, our 21st Century society is more equipped to deal with a severe drought situation than the ancient Mayans were, but it's still clear that when the weather goes bone dry - like what is going on in California - it can destroy a civilization.
Clearly not all droughts or severe weather events are caused by man-made global warming, but many are, and they are getting worse because of it. I cannot fathom how people can be so ignorant and self-destructive to ignore the science and the facts and refuse to do anything about it.
What's the old saying? Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it? Check and mate.
I know you're jealous of all the attention Curiosity gets, but you need to stop with the selfies, Hubble. It just doesn't work for you.
I'm not sure that this would surprise anyone who has passing knowledge of chemistry and the food industry. I'm not one of those "Big Food", "GMOs are poison" alarmist, but it's well known that food companies have been trying to make food, especially sugary food, more sweet and addictive over the past few decades.
Oh noes! Electronic devices disrupt sleep! How did they determine this? By asking people to read a book on an iPad for FOUR HOURS and then immediatey trying to go to sleep for five straight days.
Seriously, who is going to read a book on an iPad for 4 hours and then immediately try to go to bed for a week straight? This is both misleading science and journalism.
It's hard to try to see the bright side of the world. Media outlets are always focusing on the worst stories because that is better for ratings/sales. I'm certainly not saying that bad (or even horrific) things are not happening here and abroad, but there is also a lot of good out there, too.
Maybe in 2015, we should focus on highlighting the good and figuring out what we can all do to make those bad things better. Together.
Thank you for putting together this nifty little Auto-Awesome package of my 2014 photos. It basically boils down o two subjects: our son or . And I'm okay with this.
