Google Glass visits PARC
The Palo Alto Research Center is the place where much of the technology we use in everyday life was invented. Ethernet. Laser printers. Object oriented programming. Modern GUIs. And more was invented here.
I'll have more videos later this week that I captured on my professional camcorder, but here I capture +mike kuniavsky
on Glass showing me around a room in PARC that has a bunch of examples of PARC's innovations over the years.
Walking through here you can see a TON of computer history. Unfortunately this room is not open to the public, so this Glass tour will have to do.
Mike, by the way, co-founded several successful user experience centered companies, including ThingM and Adaptive Path. Smart guy and that adds to the thrill of getting access to this room. You can read more about Mike here on PARC's website: http://www.parc.com/about/people/2781/mike-kuniavsky.html
Come back to my Google+ page all week as I upload more videos and photos: https://google.com/+Scobleizer
At one point we see the first laser printer and stumbled over the inventor of it. His name is Gary Starkweather. Damn, my memory is going (I met him when we both worked at Microsoft). #throughglass
