Last week we told you we'd be trying out new ways to find Explorers. Well, we weren’t kidding. We learned a lot when we opened our site a few weeks ago, so we’ve decided to move to a more open beta. We’re still in the Explorer Program while we continue to improve our hardware and software, but starting today anyone in the US can buy the Glass Explorer Edition, as long as we have it on hand: google.com/glass

We’re ready to keep meeting new Explorers, and we can’t wait to hear all your experiences and feedback to continue to make Glass even better, ahead of our wider consumer release.

Oh the suspense!
There aren’t a lot of moments in life that are bigger than this one. "Seeds" is our way of saying "Thank you, Mom."

This film was created by the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts as part of the Glass Creative Collective.

I was hoping it would turn out to be a sort of time travelers' society. Oh well.

When Google released its new Camera app with Lens Blur last week, they also posted documentation on the files it generates:
https://developers.google.com/depthmap-metadata

Ever since, people have been coming up with interesting ways of visualizing the depth data embedded in the images.  These include parallax mapping (http://depthy.stamina.pl) and generating point clouds (http://www.clicktorelease.com/code/depth-player).

I thought it would be fun to hack up something that generated textured meshes from the data and let you explore them.  So... here it is: http://www.keithito.com/depthmesh

It was incredibly cool of Google to open up the depth map format, and I look forward to seeing what other uses people find for the data.

Wow. Lens Blur is amazing! Congrats to +Steve Seitz and team.
Today we’re launching Google Camera, a new app for your Android phone or tablet that makes it easy to take quick photos and videos. And being behind the lens just got more fun with new creative picture modes.

Sleek Design. The 100% viewfinder gets out of your way while capturing the maximum resolution of the scene (no dropped pixels). And the extra large capture button is easy to press so your eyes never lose sight of the subject.

Lens Blur. Emphasize the subject while blurring the background for an SLR-like shot with shallow depth-of-field (or bokeh). You can even change the subject in focus after taking the shot.

Improved Panorama. New higher resolution panoramas capture the full width and detail of a scene.

Photo Sphere. Immersive 360 degree photo spheres let you look up, down and all around...now at up to 50 megapixels! For the first time available on non-Nexus devices.

Google Camera is now available on the Play store (http://goo.gl/llsZjx), and works on all phones and tablets running Android 4.4+ KitKat. We’re just getting started, and in the months ahead we'll make Google Camera available to more devices, helping make photography easier, faster and more fun.

Check out our Research Blog to learn more (http://goo.gl/lUDfi8).
