I am so proud of the work that my Father and mother do every day at the Genesis Center!    

"This single visit transformed my thinking on community engagement and the power of one. One man took the time to see the need, laid out a vision, and was relentless in trail blazing a community to make a better life for all the children he could reach."

I really enjoyed reading all of the comments and questions about the design photos we released. Here’s a question I saw a few times: "I use prescription glasses. Will this work for me?" We ideally want Project Glass to work for everyone, and we're experimenting with designs that are meant to be extendable to different types of frames. Many of our team members wear glasses, too, so it’s definitely something we’re thinking about. Here’s an early mock-up to show how the device might work with prescription glasses. Please keep the feedback coming.

We think technology should work for you—to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don’t.

A group of us from Google[x] started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment. We’re sharing this information now because we want to start a conversation and learn from your valuable input. So we took a few design photos to show what this technology could look like and created a video to demonstrate what it might enable you to do.

Please follow along as we share some of our ideas and stories. We’d love to hear yours, too. What would you like to see from Project Glass?

Here's our documentary on slavery in Mauritania, which abolished the practice only in 1981 and made it a crime in 2007. Shot by +Edythe McNamee. Please take a look.
