Performant watch faces FTW.  They should be smooth, beautiful, and reliable.  Check out this blog post for some tips.

Yeah, now we just need better ways of testing. The emulator isn't too sufficient.

But as a first version it seems to be sufficient.

Remember that time I put on an old timey voice to help introduce a new API?  Oh, yah, that was today.  =]

Watch Faces FTW.

#androidwear #watchfaces
 
The update for Android Wear to 5.0 is now rolling out to watches, and we are pleased to announce that the official Android Wear Watch Face API is now available for developers. With support for custom watch faces, users have even more ways to personalize their watches, and developers have the ability to create all kinds of new experiences. For more information, including how watch faces work and how to deploy them, check out the blog post by +Wayne Piekarski at http://goo.gl/eJvubC and the video below by +Timothy Jordan

Glass is graduating from Google[x] labs to focus on the future of Glass.  The Explorer program is closing, but if you need a second, third, or fourth Glass you've got a few more days to buy 'em!  ;)

The team is now working on future versions of Glass. We learned a ton from the Explorer Program and we’re closing it so we can better focus on building what’s next – you’ll see the next version when it’s ready.  At the same time, the Glass at Work program is starting strong and is a great opportunity for development today.
 
We’re graduating from Google[x] labs

It’s hard to believe that Glass started as little more than a scuba mask attached to a laptop. We kept on it, and when it started to come together, we began the Glass Explorer Program as a kind of “open beta” to hear what people had to say.

Explorers, we asked you to be pioneers, and you took what we started and went further than we ever could have dreamed: from the large hadron collider at CERN, to the hospital operating table; the grass of your backyard to the courts of Wimbledon; in fire stations, recording studios, kitchens, mountain tops and more.

Glass was in its infancy, and you took those very first steps and taught us how to walk. Well, we still have some work to do, but now we’re ready to put on our big kid shoes and learn how to run.

Since we first met, interest in wearables has exploded and today it’s one of the most exciting areas in technology. Glass at Work has been growing and we’re seeing incredible developments with Glass in the workplace. As we look to the road ahead, we realize that we’ve outgrown the lab and so we’re officially “graduating” from Google[x] to be our own team here at Google. We’re thrilled to be moving even more from concept to reality.

As part of this transition, we’re closing the Explorer Program so we can focus on what’s coming next. January 19 will be the last day to get the Glass Explorer Edition. In the meantime, we’re continuing to build for the future, and you’ll start to see future versions of Glass when they’re ready. (For now, no peeking.)

Thanks to all of you for believing in us and making all of this possible. Hang tight—it’s going to be an exciting ride.

I am very interested in the future of Google glass and its impact in healthcare. I recently completed my Master's degree in Health Informatics -completed an opinion paper on Google Glass' potential for improvng health. My prof G Eysenbach, the editor of JMIR recommended my paper be published in the journal, offering to co-author it as a commentary. I would love to be a part of this movement!

I was wondering where +Todd Kerpelman had been lately...  ;)
 
So it looks like +Todd Kerpelman is working on a series of videos for iOS developers. But it's okay. You can still watch it on a Nexus 6.

"For every killer drone you show me, I can show you a drone that is saving lives all around the world. If I can help change the public view on drones, that would be great and I’d be happy to do it. They expand my universe in a way that I would never be able to do using my physical self."  - Stuart Turner
Stuart Turner does not have the use of his legs or arms but is working with scientists to fly from a drone’s perspective
