I wonder how much Google is paying Gogo to make Google+ accessible from the sky without logging into Gogo.

Well, I see that people have figured out why I'm quitting AOSP.

There's no point being the maintainer of an Operating System that can't boot to the home screen on its flagship device for lack of GPU support, especially when I'm getting the blame for something that I don't have authority to fix myself and that I had anticipated and escalated more than 6 months ahead.

A few months ago, I hosted a keyboard "tasting party" for some friends. 

I'd be happy to answer any questions I can about anything in my collection.

I've built my first little piece of software for Google Glass.

I flew home from SF yesterday and realized that there was no way (short of installing a very crashy Settings.apk) to enable Airplane Mode on my Glass.

That seemed like a reasonable enough "small" starter project.

This is really, really only for folks who are already comfortable running third party apps on their Glass. If you don't know how to sideload apps with adb, please don't install this. 

You can grab the initial build at:

Source lives at https://github.com/obra/GlassAirplane

Patches welcome!

Picked up my Glass today. I..think I need to get contacts.

Congrats!

I got a MOD Live HUD from Recon Instruments today.
It is, indeed, running Gingerbread.

#ifihadglass, I wouldn't have bothered to tear it down. 

As it turns out, if you can get it to install an update.zip, it won't check the signatures. Which means it's pretty easy to root :)

Cracking it open, the display is a Kopin, though I don't yet know which model.

It's designed as a look-around display. The prism has a mirrored backing and is wrapped in black plastic. The mirror coating on the prism comes off quite easily with a bit of rubbing alcohol.

So yeah, rootable Android (2.3) wearable computer. $300.

More details as the story develops.
