Layar, the augmented reality app, is now available for Glass. Sideload only though. I have yet to sideload, but I am willing to give it a try. Does anyone have a good tutorial, or list of steps, for sideloading? 
The year was 2009. The iPhone was still a relatively fresh young face, and a newfangled technology called “augmented reality,” or AR, was giving iOS users a few fancy parlor tricks to try out with their smartphones. Layar was the biggest name in mobile AR back then—and now it makes a return on a smartglasses platform that needs some AR mojo. Layar has announced Layar for Glass. You won’t find the app in Google’s official Glassware catalog, bu...

Introduction
Dr. Penny is an Associate Professor of Educational Technology at West Chester University in Pennsylvania. He is a former professional soccer player and a graduate of Penn State University with a Ph.D. in Curriculum & Instruction.

In 2007 Dr. Penny became an Apple Distinguished Educator and in 2009 a Google Certified Teacher. His efforts in teaching and research have the focus of technology integration, including published articles on eMentoring, 24/7 laptop access for teacher candidates and ePortfolios, a recent book chapter on podcasting and book titled Technology Leadership in Teacher Education: Integrated Solutions and Experiences. In his most recent research project, Dr. Penny is working on an eBook reader pilot with students and faculty. The goal of the pilot is to determine if the convenience and features of a eBook reader are more useful than the physical qualities of a print book. 

Outside of teaching and research Dr. Penny serves on the Apple Distinguished Educator Advisory Board, the Curriculum And Policies Committee (CAPC) Executive Board and is the Technology Specialist for the Honors College at West Chester. 

In his free time Dr. Penny enjoy spending quality time with his wife and three young boys.
