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?

Massive Hammock Tent Is a Portable Treehouse ... Neatorama - "Tentsile has taken the hammock tent concept and pushed it to an extreme. The picture below doesn’t do it full justice. There’s a third segment projecting out the back. The entire assembly can house five to eight people. And Tensile’s website suggests that they’re working on a twelve-person tent. ..." see more on the company's site: http://www.tentsile.com/index.html this really a COOL idea, especially the part about being above the snakes and other animals!

Huge solar flare heading toward Earth, may disrupt satellites, power grids, airplanes

Wed Mar 7, 12:40 p.m. EST: +SPACE.com reports that a massive solar flare that erupted from the sun late yesterday is unleashing one of the most powerful solar storms in more than five years, a solar tempest that may potentially interfere with satellites in orbit and power grids when it reaches Earth.

Several +NASA spacecraft caught videos of the solar flare as it hurled a wave of solar plasma and charged particles, called a coronal mass ejection (CME), into space. The CME is not expected to hit Earth directly, but the cloud of charged particles could deliver a glancing blow to the planet.

Early predictions estimate that the CME will reach Earth tomorrow at 7 a.m. EST (1200 GMT), with the effects likely lasting for 24 hours, and possibly lingering into Friday.
