So what apps are currently available for glass, and where do I find them?

Either side loaded or mirror api are welcome. I've been wearing glass for a couple months running the stock experience, and I'm ready to play around.

I heard there was a "zoom" app that did a digital zoom on part of the video to give kind of "super vision". Anyone know where I can find that?

So someone contacted me today wanting help duplicating my design for their children's museum in Vermont. Unskilled in electronics they couldn't figure out how to order PCBs from dorkbot/oshpark. That's what prompted me to ask on twitter about a widget/button for "order this board @ OSHpark".

It's a great way to track how many times you looked at the sun to precipitate an impending sneeze.

Always sad when a board doesn't work, but good that it's not an expensive mistake. 

Keep in mind that we (OSHPark) are allowed a  0.0635 mm tolerance on finished hole size, so design the hole a bit larger than you need it to be.  You can always put in more solder, but as you discovered, if a hole is too small, there's not much you can do.
I know, it's been a long time since my last post. But I was busy with other stuff and also my laziness (a skill which I have trained close to perfection) has prevent me from doing a new post. This time I want to write about t...

Yep. KiCAD has 0.8mm header holes by default. I made my own header package to have 1mm as recommended by header manufacturers.

Not liking any of the mobile phones on the market? Just make one yourself! David Mellis from the Media Lab’s High-Low Tech group created the DIY Cellphone to “encourage a proliferation of diverse mobile phones.”
