So I did a factory reset of my Glass and the touchpad issue seems to have evolved into something worse. >…>

Seems it wont recognize being worn so I turned it off only for it to reboot displaying the updating card. Now it loads up into a white card in what looks to me as a bootloop. #Ermehgerd #nozzors #glass #halp #HELP #PK!

For  the newer and more seasoned +Google Glass  explorers. Here is a GREAT way to sideload apps onto your Glass. You will still need to setup the drivers for Glass on your PC, but after that it's just a couple clicks from installing.

This is from +Dave Martinez and +BrickSimple, LLC  GREAT WORK!!

I found this article on a Blog and thought to share it with all my friends. Especially for those who really want to know what they can do with this tiny piece of glass 
Google Glass was launched only for One-Day-Sale on Tuesday, April 15, 2014 in United States of America @ an introductory price of $1,500. Though, the response from buyers was overwhelming, surprisingly, the sale was officiall...

Freedom Trail

Yesterday I had the occasion to experience my home city of Boston like a tourist as I showed someone new to the city around.  As we were doing the Freedom Trail it occurred to me this was the perfect opportunity for Glass.  I imagined seeing the Red Line painted on the sidewalk projected out in front of my in Glass, giving directions so you can follow the trail. Glass would alert me if I was at one of the stops on the freedom trail and then provide relevant information like Wikipedia articles, etc.

Besides text, photos (old and new), videos, music and other relevant information. The new travel guidebooks! Smells are still in the future.

There are several educationist Explorers out there.  I am very interested in the implications for Glass in the learning environment.

So this is very exciting! We just finished putting together some RAW footage of the Baltimore Orioles vs. the Boston Red Sox from April 2, 2014. I became a #Glassexplorer  that weekend prior so this is very exciting! +Pharrell Williams hit #Happy  is featured because it is the only song that can compliment the emotion captured #throughglass   Please like and follow my page and channel to continue my journey and +Trotza Creative Agency journey with #glass  We will continue to put together great footage and content for all #glassexplorers  and non #googleglass  users to enjoy and benefit from! We are also starting the #BaltimoreThroughglass   #meetup  group to connect and help grow this incredible wearable technology, and we are thirsty to work with new people in various industries! I would also like to say thank you to +Google Glass and their #gorgeous   #Newyork  loft and the transformational experience they provided for me and +Tyler Schubert Please enjoy and remember to share and subscribe!

Unfortunately, most of the products listed for Android plug into a headphone jack. If one had an Android cable converter to headphone jack, conceivably this would work (possible sound loss if the connector wasn't high quality). +Heather Evans's hack works until one of the bigger companies bridges the Glass amplification/presentation challenge. With that being said, someone could also conceivably create Glassware that features sound amplification via Bluetooth control. Hmm....

As many of you probably have seen in recent posts we started a fund a few days ago for +David Callaway  to help him out (original post found here: http://goo.gl/fMcV6D). We were astonished at the overwhelming support. Some of you even donated items to help the cause. We are happy to say that we will be closing out the prizes for donations on Monday April 21st at 12 p.m. PST (3 p.m EST). There is still time to donate (at least $2.50) and possibly receive one of the generous items from other explorers!

The first prize is a drawing from +Kata Rina  (http://goo.gl/CZHukM):
THE PRIZE 
Copy of Borderlands PRE-SQUEL  (code) signed by GEARBOX crew
The CEO Randy Pitchford also is a GLASS Explorer
A Golden Key code card
Early release of X-Box magazine
PAX east lanyard

Next up we have +Shazafar Khaja  (http://goo.gl/USVRXN):
THE PRIZE
He is offering a Glass Pouch and the Mono earbud to the person who donates the highest amount to our Glass Explorer in need and prevent him from selling his Glass unit.

Next we have another drawing from +Joseph Riddleback  (http://goo.gl/gLtJlf):
 A pair of Stereo Ear Buds

Last but not least we have +Marky Jackson with another drawing (http://goo.gl/Yav1Sk): 
Google Glass shades (unused and with pouch), extra Glass bag and nose pads-thingys (unused of course)

Thank you all so very much for donating the items, and to everyone who helped out with this. Without great people doing great things we would all just be a bunch of people with goofy looking Glasses. This one act has changed some many lives the the ripples will go on forever.  It seems as though +Google Glass should be advertised that it gives people super powers and that power would be LOVE.

Thanks again for all the support. We will announce the winners tomorrow afternoon.

Here's what glass support had me do, and it worked:

Plug the glass into a wall USB charger. If the power light doesn't come on, leave it plugged in for about an hour, then unplug it for about 10 seconds, then plug it in again and look for the power light. Repeat until the light comes on. Also, alternate the place from which you unplug : from the wall, from the device, then from the wall again, etc. This last part may just be superstition, but it worked for me.

While this seemed to me to be bad hardware behavior, Google support told me that it might be expected after the device battery becomes absolutely drained.

"The glass has to be on to receive a charge," I was told -- bizarre as that sounds. When it's initially plugged in, there's supposed to be a firmware pulse that kicks it on, after which it charges happily.

The Sky (throughglass)

Over the past weekend I attended an Astronomy festival/conference/telescope show I've gone to a few times over the past few years. I took my Glass but with a special addition. Sideloaded Google Sky.  The reaction was quite positive from everyone I demoed it to.  We took it outside on Saturday Night and Mars, Jupiter, all where Google Sky said they'd be right there in a heads up manner on Glass.

This was just a sideloaded Android App.  I imagine lots you could do with a purpose built Astronomy Glass app.  Everything from Outreach to pointing/targeting an actual telescope just by looking up at the sky. One additional use case I'd love to see is also ISS/Satellite tracking. I imagine being able to get notifications of ISS passes and then augmented reality style the Glass app would give me directions to exactly where and what angle I need to be looking to spot the pass.

Please support this wishlist to bring back video calling!
 
So about 95% of the comments on the +Google Glass announcement about XE16 are bummed about the removal of video calls. IDK but I've never really seen anyone really complain about this. So, why exactly is it being removed?

Here's a wishlist created to bring back this feature. Please support this.

+Google Glass I just told a bunch of folks about how great video calling feature is to keep grandparents in touch with the grandkids and some of them were posing in buying Glass tomorrow for that feature. I'm nuts telling those folks that you yanked the feature that they loved so much. Don't do it.

#GlassUpdates are back with KitKat for Glass, photo bundles & more  

You’ve been asking us when the next round of updates were coming. Well, they’re coming later this week! We know it’s been a little while, but this is a big one and we think it’s well worth the wait. Here’s what you’ll find in the new release:

KitKat for Glass – Our most exciting update is subtle, but big. We’ve been working on a significant upgrade to a new version of the Glass software. It’s not a change you can see, but it brings improved battery life and makes Glass more reliable and easier to update in the future. And now that Glass runs Android KitKat, developers can write Glassware using the latest Android SDK goodness, along with new features from our GDK.

Photo bundles – This one has been a long-standing request from our Explorers: now when you scroll through your timeline, your photos, videos and vignettes from each day will be organized in bundles so that you can swipe less and see more.

Photo replies in Hangouts – Photo sharing has been really popular amongst our Explorers, so we’ve added new ways to send photos in Hangout messages. The next time someone asks “what’s up,” tap “Reply” and then take a photo to show them. (If you already took the perfect photo, you can still tap to “Send” it in a Hangout message.)

Sending feedback – We always want to hear feedback from you on ways we can make Glass better so we’re making it even easier. Tap on the device info card in Settings and tell us what’s on your mind. If you need help, you can still send us an email, call us, or post in the Explorers Community.

Voice command sorting – With new features and Glassware, your voice command menu has grown pretty long. When you tap or say “ok glass,” voice commands are now sorted by recency and frequency, making it easier to see the commands you use most often and faster to access them from the touch menu. 

Video calls – We hold ourselves to high standards for the features that we build, and video calls aren’t living up to these standards. Explorers have told us so directly, and fewer than 10% of them use video calls. For this reason, we’ve made the hard decision to remove video calls from Glass until the experience is better. We don’t know when that will be, but in the meantime, keep an eye on MyGlass as more Glassware is built and released – we’re already seeing the developer community work on other video streaming services. We’ve always said that feedback from Explorers shapes Glass, and this is no exception.

…and more – This is a massive update and we couldn’t fit all the changes into this post, so watch the Glass Journal in the Explorers Community to see the rest.
