In the last year we've seen our Explorers use Glass in really inspiring and practical day-to-day ways. Something we've also noticed and are very excited about is how Explorers are using Glass to drive their businesses forward. A number of companies have already teamed up with enterprise software developers to create new ways to serve their customers and reach their business goals.

The Washington Capitals and Schlumberger are just two of the companies that are at the forefront of exploring new possibilities with Glass. The Washington Capitals partnered with APX Labs to create a fan experience where real time stats, instant replay and different camera angles are all brought directly to Capitals fans via Glass. Schlumberger, the world’s largest oilfield services company, partnered with Wearable Intelligence and is using Glass to increase safety and efficiency for their employees in the field. 

This is only the beginning of what’s possible for Glass and business. If you’re a developer who is creating software for U.S. based enterprises, we’d love your help in building the future of Glass at Work. Get in touch with us here:

It's awesome to see Glass progressing daily and is exceptionally inspirational to see progression and adoption at a Business level!
 
Referring to a thing as if is alive - where does delusion come from?
It comes from illusion. 
 
here in Italy our hotel www.hotelconta.com we are offering a free night to glassexplorers wearing the Glass on a three days stayover they'll get fourth night free. we are the first hotel in the world to offer such a deal
 
Had one and returned it...my phone is more practical
 
+pio dal cin Hotelconta .com or .it in Treviso? I'm getting not available on .com. Are the details of this offer written up anywhere?
 
How do I get access to the Washington capitals app?
 
this image reminds me of the Terminator movie when the data of individuals scrolls in front of your eyes allowing you to know who they are before you speak to them... 
...which is cool...
 

The potential of Glass is unbelievable. It's a shame that it's so limited in its availability and pricing. 
 
+Kenneth Zerafa I would become an Explorer in a heartbeat if this thing cost as much as a current-gen game console. As it is, I can't possibly justify the expenditure on my meager budget.
 
well if this works it show in the pic then it's great
 
+Steve Rakebrandt seriously are u living in the 16 century dude.. Coz so many pics through Google glass like above hv been taken till now

+Google Glass New update soon? Are we getting a new Android Wear like UI? I've been biting my nails in anticipation of what's coming next!
 
This is what I have been saying for some time now. This is just a small example of the huge potential of Glass.
 
Holy crap hurry up and make the cheaper model for the rest of us to buy!
 
The submission process is a bit flawed +Google Glass.  At one point it asked to keep answer below 400 characters, but at the bottom to keep it under 700?

Also, after I clicked submit, there's no confirmation page. I have no idea whether my submission got accepted.
 
+Kenneth Zerafa it's not available. It's still in beta testing.
 
Am I missing something, but won't stadium/rink/theatre authorities assume you're recording there IP and therefor prevent glass usage?
 
+Dave Mac that's a whole can of worms there! If they prevent glass usage, the they'd also have to prevent mobile phone usage as well! If you made content public without their permission then that's a different story!
 
+Scott Marshall totally agree, i just think its inevitable that these things will get smaller/cheaper/more accessible and proliferate.  looking into the future i can imaging a pair of glasses that look normal or even contacts lenses....  theres a whole wider debate around copyright as these things become norm and our digital lives end up on the net.
 
We loved this idea and have been watching APX-Labs!  Congrats to Brian Ballard and the team on demonstrating a great piece of technology 
 
+Al Mendoza its called personification. Its actually a very common thing in all forms of writing. Maybe you should read more...
 
Wondering if there were any plans to have a Glass visit to someone in Santa fe, New Mexico. I saw that you don't allow Google Explorers to share their pair so that others can experience these amazing tools for themselves. Is there no channel of discussion open to you regarding that?

My Pop, Tal Streeter is paralysed on his left side and cannot see out of his left eye. He has his wonderful intellect and speech but is lo longer able to read because of loss of the connection of his left eye/brain. He "writes"  by comitting to memory short stories, short letters, and commentary about life but this is difficult for him to say the least. If he were able to use a computer like Glass that appears only on his right functioning retina that would open the world up to him again!
 
Would connect him to friends, family and the wider world again !

I hope you might consider offer him a trial run with Glass.  Here is his blog : Tal's Butterfly Blog over on blogger. I've tried to describe his situation .      
 
He lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico just a few miles from Santa Fe Institute where I would assume you have Glass Explorers  
 
Tal Streeter turns 80 the 1st of August, 2014 !  Hopefully you will help us find a way for him to reconnect with the wider world.   He offers Glass an original and meaningful use !  Artists and writers like Tal can help Glass make the quantum leaps that expand and build our culture. He wants to be a part of the future.   
 
+Lissa Streeter I'd join one of the Google Glass communities, there are always people with extra invitations. You could purchase Glass for him.
 
I so want a pair this will revolutionize the world. 
 
+Michael Durwin I've been looking out there, getting the word out. It's a big investment Michael and we wanted to try it out with him first. As Google says in their contracts that they don't want anyone to lend these tools, I'm guessing this is going to be a bit difficult. But if you don't ask, don't let the universe know when you need help, 'nuthin' happens!  

Thanks for responding ! 
 
Now this is interesting and why I am excited about wearables and AR. If I just wanted a helmet cam, I could get a gopro
 
Crowd optics are the latest wave. Incredibly awesome to be a part of this.
 
Whoa... that could make the game interesting.... and make it much easier on announcers to call the names of players.  For them, maybe phonetically  spell the names? Instead of +Henrik Lundqvist   lund kwist! #nyr  
 
好酷喔!是選手的即時資訊嗎?

+Google Glass has anyone thought of using the Glass for the visually impaired? It might sound stupid at first but the idea is great. Since you have a camera at the eye, you could examine the environment and use a voice feedback to guide people through their journey. It could be a highlight system for those who can still identify colors.
Coupled with an "environment" processing unit like in the Motorola MotoX, it could memorize what the person does each day.

I'm sure there's something that can be done here.
 
+Nicholas Thurel Thanks for the suggestion. We don't have anything to share, but we're excited about the ways Glass might be used to help people in the future. 
 
+Nicholas Thurel .. I have been brainstorming ways use glass for people with disabilities on a college campus. I have been thinking of lot of the same ideas you expressed.  Glass will help us to input the information a person that does not see you or I can process.  I think the direction to take is with high particle lasers.   +Google Glass  .. is there a Glass on Campus program too?  Reaching the college students might be where to go.  Did you think of using barretts or a headband  that have lower a view finder.  That might be more popular at least with the ladies than the glasses.  My understanding is that wispy hair can be a problem.
