Finally received my cork replacement back, made from actual cork. Subjective aesthetics aside, it feels great in the hand but not the best cut. If you are a perfectionist you will have to do some minor sanding.

You can read more of my thoughts on this on my reddit post with more photos and a how-to: https://www.reddit.com/r/nexus6/comments/34ytz6/slickwraps_cork_photos_and_review/

It totally does. I also notice setting it down on a hard surface doesnt cause that "smack" sound because of padding the cork provides.

Good news Glass Family and Explorers, after some brainstorming and testing many different things I managed to seal my foil from the elements! I thought about making an acrylic cover, using epoxy and many other things until inspiration suddenly hit! My little sister loves to paint her nails and mentioned she uses monomer and acrylic to shape her nails into all sorts of clear designs.

After a bit of experimenting I nervously decided to do or die and commit to giving this a whirl. To my happy surprise everything worked! The foil did not bubble or react to the chemicals and I now have a hard seal around the foil! I'm going to give it one more coat around the edges to really give it a full seal then slowly and gently sand it to even it all out. I might come back and give it a nice shine later.

I'll continue to wear glass around all weather conditions to see if this holds true but for any of you interested I used acrylic nail liquid and acrylic nail power to create a gel substance you can brush and mold around the prism. Much thanks for ladies nail products!

Watch Face Designs  - 
 
For any of you interested, I finally got myself a Moto 360 and am beginning to put custom watch faces together through facer.

I'll be trying to recreate some of the designs I submitted for the competition over the course of time.

To start here is a simple design with a mountain and Seattle cityscape. Well post link below momentarily. Hope you enjoy!

Here you go:

To all tinkering types and device lovers, I have a somewhat rare haptic controller called the novint falcon that I'm looking to part with. I used it for games in the past and also as great tech demo to kids an adults alike. I think it may be fun to partner with vr devices as input. Let me know if anyone is interested or has questions. Located in the bay area but be willing to ship. Thanks.

Good morning fellow Explorers. Here's an update to the recent foil fixes I've been trying on my Glass unit. I've added pictures of my progress so far after adding another few layers of protection to the foil, buffing/sanding, and finish coat. 

Bonus I've also turned my midnight blue nexus 6 into the cloud white version :)

Its been a "void your warranty" kind of week.

Fellow explorers, anyone interested in trading my titanium frames bold style/red color for the split or thin style in any other color? (I have cotton glass but anything works)

I had a wonderful experience at Karl Strauss due entirely from the wonderful service, delicious food, great atmosphere and surrounding area. Although this place is definitely more for beer aficionados (which I am not) the waitress was very thorough and knowledgeable of beers that pair well with our food and was even kind enough to bring us various samples. For those of you that prefer wine or liquor over the beer, I can vouch for the cocktails being equally delicious and well balanced. Likewise there is plentiful selection of foods ranging from Tofu Curries to Shrimp Po' Boys. Great place!

This place was a wonderful surprise and definitely a must for anyone typically interested in unique bars or speak-easys. A secret (maybe not so secret) door of stacked kegs leads into a small room wall lined with golden skulls, liquors and baroque paintings. The menu is small but every drink is delicious, as is the dealer's choice. The setting is low lit and intimate and a bit tight at times. Make sure to make a reservation ahead of time if you want ample seating for your party. I'll definitely be here again next time I'm in the area.

I've seen this place get pretty busy so I thought I'd finally give this place a try. The restaurant itself is nicely situated in downtown Santa Cruz with plenty of other eateries and shops nearby. They have indoor and outdoor seating which is quite nice as well. Unfortunately for me that's were most of my great experience ended. The service was incredibly slow, unorganized and the food is average at best. I spent more time waiting for water, food and the bill than I actually spent enjoying the company of my group who was just as eager to leave.

This place is amazing. The entire surrounding area is beautiful next to the Brisbane River and both GOMA & QAG (Queensland Art Gallery) are wonderful. There is plenty of art for any art lover and you can catch many amazing exhibitions for free where you'd normally expect to pay. If you fancy yourself an artist or a frequent visitor of art galleries you wont be disappointed. Although both the Modern Art and Art Gallery buildings have plenty of art, I found myself preferring the QAG. The building was not as large and perhaps did not contain as much artwork but it was definitely more cultural and the layout was more open with waterscapes and fantastic architecture. Treat yourself to a nice walk from the QAG to the State Library of Queensland (which lies in between the QAG and GOMA) then finish with GOMA if you haven't had your fill of art for the day.

This place is fantastic. I've you've never been to this bar before you'd be prone to walk right past it. A unassuming door sandwiched between two other buildings reads "Law Offices Eddie Ohare Esq" with a doorbell that alerts your host below. Give it a ring and your host will greet you and lead you to the lounge downstairs. This place is filled with great live music, relaxing vibes and great list of drinks. The menu is not particularly expansive but the drinks are all great. A must if you are in the San Diego area.

I visited this place often while working in Brisbane and was very impressed with the quality of this Library. It's well taken care of, air conditioned, plenty of helpful staff, plenty of books, lovely architecture, free wifi and free computer access which allowed me to communicate with loved ones overseas. There's a children's area in the lower level with various quiet zones at upper floors. The surrounding areas outside of the library are also quite nice and there are plenty of spots for you to relax with with your books or laptop using the free wifi. This place is definitely a popular spot for students and there were very few days where I didn't see it fairly full and busy. Great spot!

Phil's Fish Market is an amazing place for seafood lovers all around. They offer fresh and fast food with an expansive menu that will keep you busy trying every dish they put together. For the most part the portions are generous for the price you pay, but some of the more basic dishes can still tend to be a fair bit overpriced. Although the food is always delicious, Phil's is not the most comfortable place to dine. If you come during rush time you'll be met with a line out the door and waiting for a good 30 minutes minimum outside in the sea breeze just to order your food. You then have to fend for yourself and hunt down a place to sit and eat your food, which could be another wait on its own. If you are lucky, very lucky, you might find limited seating indoors, otherwise you are more than likely stuck eating your delicious food in the outside dining area which is still fairly toasty due to overhead heaters, but still exposed to an open corridor with cold air flooding in. Plan ahead and make sure to dress warm and be ready to take the food to go if you don't feel like waiting for a seat, but its worth the wait!
