A couple months ago we invited nonprofits to tell us how they’d use Glass to boost their impact. We’ve been blown away by how many incredible ideas came our way, but a few stood out. Here are the five organizations that will receive Glass, a $25,000 grant and a trip to Google to kick their concept into high gear.

Classroom Champions
Paralympic athletes and mentors teach students to see ability where others too often see only disability. They’ll be using Glass to show students at high-need schools what it’s like to train and compete. 

3000 Miles to a Cure
Brain cancer is one of the deadliest cancers in the world. The team at 3000 Miles to a Cure are raising awareness and research funds by using Glass to show their riders on a twelve day journey. The racers and their support groups back home will be able to share milestones and inspirational messages along the way. 

Mark Morris Dance Group
MMDG is using dance to help people with Parkinson’s regain a sense of control and independence as they go on with their daily lives. Their Glassware, Moving through Glass, will give visual and musical cues to teach dance moves and fluid, rhythmic walking. 

Women’s Audio Mission
Instructors will wear Glass during their demonstrations to create an immersive experience for women and girls to learn firsthand about music, science, technology, engineering, the arts and math. 

The Hearing and Speech Agency
HASA will be using Glass to help people improve communication access for people who have speech-language challenges, hearing loss and autism.

We couldn’t be more honored to be working with such amazing nonprofits. Learn more about our Giving through Glass winners here:

Just in time for I/O… brand new Glassware

You probably didn’t expect us back with another update so soon, but we’ve got a few new Glassware coming your way. Well, 12 to be exact. 

Runtastic is your personal trainer. You’ll have a collection of workouts to help whip you into shape or push you to reach your fitness goals. 

94Fifty Basketball works with the 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball to help you with your game. It measures muscle memory that the human eye can’t see. You’ll get feedback after each shot to help you shoot like Ray Allen. (ok, maybe not Ray Allen but maybe it’ll help you make varsity.)

The Guardian keeps you up to date on breaking news alerts and lets you save the articles you want to read later. 

Duolingo makes learning a new language feel more like a game and less like high school Spanish class.

GuidiGO is your personal tour guide. Choose from 27 destinations and over 250 guided tours. Relive the Impressionist history of Montmartre, the magic of the Hagia Sofia in Istanbul, or the hidden secrets of San Francisco!

Allthecooks is no stranger to Glass, but they’ve added some new features to keep your hands free while cooking. You can now use voice commands to switch between recipes and directions. 

Zombies, Run! Because let’s face it, running is more fun when you’re being chased by zombies. 

Star Chart lets you look up at the sky and explore the stars, planets and constellations above.

Shazam on Glass can tell you the name of the track and artist of a song that’s playing around you. Just say “OK Glass, Recognize this song.” lets you keep up with everything happening in the world of football. (World Cup fans, we’re looking at you.)

Livestream let’s you broadcast live video, read chat messages from your audience and share your point of view via social networks.

musiXmatch picks up on the music playing around you and shows you the song lyrics for songs in any language.

We know you’ve got lots of questions about what’s going on at I/O, so let’s hear ‘em.

A team of Googlers will be on the look out for your #io14requests, snapping photos, answering questions, and responding to you — whether you’re at I/O or in Timbuktu. Here’s how to get it done.
Submit your I/O requests using   #io14request
#io14   #io14request  

Developers and product fans who are unable to attend Google I/O in-person are invited to participate in the third annual #io14request program. During the conference days, you can request images, information, and answers to your burning I/O questions, and a team of onsite Googlers will do their best to hunt down a response. Popular posts from prior years include photos of booth displays ( and moonwalking in front of the Chrome booth (

How does it work?
-- To put in a request during I/O (June 25-26), all you need to do is create a public Google+ post from your profile using the hashtag #io14request .  
-- Our Google I/O crew will do their best to find you an answer, mentioning you in the post so you don’t miss it. 
-- If you’re curious to see what others are requesting, follow the +Google+ Help page where the team will be posting all responses. 

The team 
This year we have 14 (that’s right!) community managers representing different products:

Please note that we will only be replying to requests about and related to this year's I/O posted between June 25 and 26, 2014 - so don’t start posting quite yet!

If only kids came with an instruction manual. Becoming a dad opens up so many questions from “How do you swaddle a newborn” to “Can babies shiver?” (The answer to the second one is no.)

What types of questions and curiosities popped into your head when you became a dad?

Our first child was born just a week ago and I got the whole journey to, during, and from the hospital on Glass! A lot of it from the mother's view.  I'm looking to piece it all together like "Seeds"; anyone willing and capable of helping?

Thanks to you, Glass just got even better 

The Explorer Program has been an exciting ride, and as a result of your feedback, we’ve picked up the pace on making more improvements. In the last year we’ve made over a dozen software and several hardware updates. For example, we’ve improved battery life by over 20%, made voice search 10% faster and brought you frames, shades and prescription support. With I/O about to kick off, we wanted to share some of the most recent improvements we’ll be rolling out. You asked for…

an easier way to frame your shots, so we bring you viewfinder. When you say “ok glass, show the viewfinder” you’ll see white L’s in the four corners of your Glass screen. You can then either take a photo by saying “ok glass, take a picture,” with a wink, or by pushing the camera button.

more Google Now cards, so we launched two new ones to remind you where you parked your car and let you know when packages are coming your way. Stay tuned for more to come.

better performance, so Glass will now start shipping with 2GB of RAM.

We can’t wait to hear what you think – let us know in the comments.

I am very disappointed to hear they have not addressed the foil issue. I only had my first pair since February.

OK Glass, we’re coming to the UK

Probably the question we’ve heard more than any other is: when will Glass be available outside the US? Well, we’re starting out by dipping our toes across the pond. 

Beginning today, we’re extending our open beta Explorer program to the UK. The world sees the UK as a center (actually, a centre) of innovation. It has produced some of the greatest technology inventors and inventions of the last century, and people on the ground are always excited to explore new products and ideas.  

So, if you are here in the UK and fancy a demo, RSVP to try Glass at our London Demo Days on June 27-28th at or join the Explorer Program and get Glass at

We can’t wait to see you in a few days. In the meantime, get a glimpse of London life #throughglass in this video.

Our first Glass at Work Certified Partners

We’ve been searching for developers who are creating Glassware to help businesses reach their goals. We heard from hundreds of enterprise developers and today we’re excited to announce our first round of Glass at Work Certified Partners. Congrats to APX, Augmedix, Crowdoptic, GuidiGO and Wearable Intelligence. You can learn more about the Certified Partner Program and our partners here:

If you want to see some of the work our partners are doing, check out how Augmedix is working with Dignity Health so that doctors can spend less time on their computers and more time with patients:

They teach you how to ride your first bike, sneak you the last cookie when no one’s looking, and they make sure there are no monsters under your bed. What can we say? Dads make the world go round.

Getting technology out of the way
We started Project Glass to build technology that’s seamless, beautiful and empowering. To share the world through your eyes. To get answers and updates, instantly. To be there when you need it, and out of your way when you don’t.

We’re inviting a small group of Explorers to help us discover the full potential of Glass. Follow us on our journey, and help us shape the future.
