Meet Sabita Malla, Glass Explorer and senior research officer for +World Wildlife Fund Nepal. Celebrate #EarthDay with Sabita as she explores how Glass can help in her mission to protect rhinos. 

Sabita uses custom Field Notes Glassware, software that was developed by a Glass Explorer who wanted to help WWF cut in half the work required to manage field conservation efforts. Sabita’s team is one of five nonprofits exploring how Glass might amplify their impact as part of Giving through Glass, a program we launched a few months ago in partnership with +Google.org: goo.gl/AT9obZ

We’re extending the program for another round starting today. Nonprofits can apply now through May 20 at g.co/givingthroughglass. Five nonprofits will win: Glass, a $25,000 grant, a trip to a Google office and a connection to Glass developers.

And if you’re a Glass developer who wants to partner with a nonprofit and code for impact, sign up now at goo.gl/IeRjnk.

At first I was thinking of a different WWF... in this case reality is more interesting than what's going on in my head.

110% support goes to Sabita Malla.
 
How can I get the Field Notes source as well as the app in general? Is there a developer contact? I am working on a similar project in the Arctic and would love to check out and/or modify the software for our needs.
 
I use Evernote personally, but we need a bit more than it can offer when it comes to a lab notebook. 
 
I LOVE the idea of glass.  I look forward to more useful apps.

The good man is the friend of all living things.
 
OK, I am not a superstar, some one famous or a scientist. Can the Google Glass sell for the average Joe and less price now?
 
Can Developer Purchase It In Low Prices ?. I'm Very Much Interested To Develop It's App.
Thanks

Hello... Hello... Knock Knock... Hello $1500 Display

High resolution display is the equivalent of a 25 inch high definition screen from eight feet away.... What is everyone talking about.. Please someone put me in my place that you are all talking out your asses... $1500

Who here as spit up hard earned $$$'s not B$

$1500... Are you serious
 
If hands free video is all you need Geek.com has sun glasses with built in photo & video recording with sound for $99.00. The DPI of cause is not great but not bad, it doesn't do any fancy stuff like sending automatically to social net work pages, that you can do when you get home and upload your footage to your computer. The battery life last all day regardless if shooting video.

+Glenn Berman thank you very much for bringing sanity to a "lifestyle choice" purchase thread.. $1500 .. Indeed .. 
 
+Glenn Berman well. i think it is oposite. it is taking video, what is fancy. I like idea of google glass, as it offer semi augument reality, -  posibility of new kind of android app - i.e  can use directly video inputs, process it, mix it with user input, and present results.   this 1500USD is nice wall. As i can read in discussion, this device still have aload of problems, and is really not ready for users - google would be flooded with complains ...  I guess only super  early adopters will go for this device now...

+Hynek Los totally agree, so having a G+ thread by Google for Google is airing their dirty "proof of concept" laundry in public.. This should all be internal proprietary NDA stuff with serious R&D needs, not like the guy I saw in here who was delayed going storm chasing because his glass wouldn't boot.. I nearly fell off my chair laughing so much
 
+Jay Kay  well, i am quite  happy they open door.  NDA is nothing but restriction for ideas. They can improve it in much better, if people not related to projet  are allowed to use it... This project is intended to be used by average guy in harsh enviroment. There is no similar device on martket.....       anyway. i would go for it, if there is chance for people outside of USA - even for that price.

+Hynek Los wow.. OK to each their own.. I think the point I was making is that maybe the current r&d is possibly a bit to sensitive for general consumption, early adopters with a clear mandate of assisting the r&d should really have a closed avenue into the process.. IMO the general availability windows for joe schmo to get a pair and the ongoing market positioning for a mass adoption of glass.. Are really damaging the wow factor when they do make a decision in how they roll the dice in a big way
 
+Google Glass I tried to sign up to givingthroughglass as a developer, but the form's confirmation page was blank. Is there anyway to confirm that it went through correctly?
 
I love being apart of something new, different and at the forefront of technology. The Glass might not be for everyone at it's present level of functionality, and price, but as I discover where it fits into my personal usage, I trip onto another part of its application possibilities. I gladly invest the $1500.00 to help kickstart the possibilities. I'm confident the price will drop and the Glass will reach full functionality at some later time, made possible by the early Explorers.
 
+Andres Calvo The confirmation form shouldn't be blank, so it's safest to submit again. We know that's not ideal. Sorry. 
 
+Google Glass I tried to submit it a few more times (from different browsers of course) and I still get a blank page instead of a confirmation. Please advise. 
 
Thanks +Google Glass! It's always a pleasure to deal with the incredibly-efficient Glass Guides.
