+CAGED MMA​ I'm a little familiar with what your trying to do - DJI Vision is the companion app for the Phantom 2, to enable FPV mid-flight, yes? My company has used that...and I'm pretty sure it won't work too well with Glass. As +Allen Firstenberg​ and +Lucas Baran​ noted, launching the app doesn't gel with Glass' input controls for voice commands or touch shortcuts. The UI for the app requires regions that work in a touchscreen that Glass can't easily manipulate.

And I'm not certain the communications protocol used by the app to talk to the quadcopter (WiFi, I believe) works the same on Glass because of additional package dependencies. It's a great idea, and one our community has talked about a lot in the last two years, but just not built for Glass.

However, not all is lost. You can try searching for "Glass drone FPV", or ping +Dave Martinez​ and +Ana Huante​, who have done some neat work in the space of using Glass to control a Parrot AR.Drone. There are some SWEET videos of Dave piloting one and a repo of his project to do so on +GitHub​.

Good luck! Let me know what you find! We do need a simple FPV solution for aerial videography for wearables. :)

Finally. The 3 hour video from the Google Wearables in Healthcare Pilot Challenge 2015 is available. This was Thursday night at #google Cambridge. #googleglass

Some incredible work being done out there and I offer kudos to all the finalists. Oh. Google Glass is very much alive and well.

When developing for Google Glass, does anyone else stumble on getting GC_FOR_ALLOC for some allocations? Trying to figure out if I'm somehow leaking memory or if this is supposed to be normal.

Can anyone share the experience with boundary between developing glassware using GDK and Mirror API considering the native computing power of the glass? I want to run a Convolutional Neural Network feedforward on glass with real-time response but wondering which to choose.

Here's a slide from the folks at Mozilla Research working on virtual reality for the browser (https://air.mozilla.org/channels/vr/). It's germane to our work as wearable developers in building immersive experiences for Glass in clarifying what those types of experiences should actually be.

Sidepack is at Nextgenlens!

Curious what side pack is all about?
SidePack is an external wearable battery pack for Google Glass. SidePack houses a 500 mAh battery allowing for extended use of Glass. SidePack slides onto the left side Glass with frames or no frames. Once slid on the microUSB cable wraps around the back of your neck doubling as a lanyard. Charging SidePack is easily done by plugging in a microUSB cable. SidePack's unique glowing case quickly let's you know the current battery status.

About this community

Welcome to the Glass Developers Community! This is an unofficial Glass community for developers, where we can talk about applications, design, best practices, and developer related news. Google Glass will no doubt require a new approach to building mobile applications. Limited screen size, battery life, interactions and user attention span. Applications run on servers rather than the client, meaning backend developers now become frontend developers. Technologies like Google+ Sign In and Google Apps Engine becomes relevant for client developers in a completely new way. The goal of this community is to talk about these challenges, and promote building applications for Glass. If you know any developers interested in Glass, do not hesitate to invite them!

Our experience with voice input in Tutorial for Glass
When you need to input data in Glass, voice is the natural way. For sure, engineers will imagine methods to connect it to a keyboard but nothing can beat voice. It's much more natural, intuitive and convenient than any other alternative. A very cool feature of a tutorial or digital assistant in ...

+1 for offline speech recognition. In my experiments i found Glass was able to recognise simple things offline, but went online to resolve grey areas. Unfortunately, the API did not allow control over this. For example, by giving an option to not go online, or by controlling timeouts, for example.

Wear on the other hand (bad pun), seems to need to be online always. I think Glass and wear should both offer offline recognition.

I also think that it should be possible to add additional words to the system, either by saying them or by entering their phonetics. For example, Google is unable to recognise the spoken word "Roger". I've tried saying it in different ways to no avail.

Hi guys, I'm currently creating a home automation application for Glass as my university project. I am a complete newbie to Glass development and I am having trouble getting my menu items to set as visible/invisible for both the voice menu and touch menu.
I've posted a question on stackoverflow (linked in post) but am currently not having any luck :(
All my code is on GitHub at https://github.com/sephallen/HomeAutomationForGlass

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Does anyone know if Twitter finally stopped supporting their Glassware? they, of course, disabled any new users several months back, but the app still worked if you didn't turn it off in MyGlass - which I never did. I haven't been getting tweets for the last couple of days.

I'm trying to program this Android phone app in which there is a button by clicking which I can open an app on a Google Glass that is paired with the phone. I was wondering how this can be done, if at all. Maybe through BLE or something?

Never have really thought about doing something like this before. I will start by saying that I am not sure this can be done. But, if you do have the Glass App running you can have the Android app discover the Glass by trying to open some sort of socket via Bluetooth and send data to and from Glass. Just thinking outside the box in case this can't be done ;) Good luck!

Probably a silly question, hope anyone can help with me:
After I install an app on google glass using eclipse and I can check it using "adb shell pm list packages -f" in Mac terminal and saw the app already be installed. But I still cannot find it in glass menu.

I know that when I side loaded apps it took a bit for them to actually show up, not only that but I had more success with using the gdk to load to app rather than adb for some reason.

"Does my Glassware need a web site to be approved?"
I was chatting with a friend earlier today about the process of Glassware review and Google's required materials for submission. One thing she was asking was about the need for a web site to accompany the project - which is primarily to be used, upon approval and listing in MyGlass, as your documentation, which your listing will link to as the Support page.

I obviously can't speak for Google, but in my own experience, this doesn't have to be a full-on professionally-designed web site. While many Glassware vendors go this route, you don't necessarily have to. With my projects, I've previously listed simple resources such as the GitHub README page for my project, or the GitHub wiki for my project, or GitHub's amazingly simple Pages feature, which auto-generates and themes a really nice-looking content based on your project. I haven't gotten dinged about the content being irrelevant or insufficient, so it's a cool tip to pass on. It's not the most-polished approach, but seems to work.

(Keep in mind these examples I've cited are basically all the same content, which took me an extra 20 minutes to write-up prior to sending my Glassware off to be assessed.)

http://jasonsalas.github.io/TrendingTimeForGlass/
https://github.com/jasonsalas/TrendingTimeForGlass/blob/master/README.md
https://github.com/jasonsalas/TrendingTimeForGlass/wiki/Tech-talk-presentation

The bottom line is that it's required you include some sort of helpful information your users can refer to when you get approved, but this doesn't have to be another project in itself.

An always-interesting talking point about +Google Glass has been its web browser. Unlike many topics within the Glass community, the browser tends not to be a polarizing issue – in my experience, opinions on the user agent often skew towards the negative, or even more damning, complete apathy (indifference being a fate worse than death for a consumer product). Admittedly, I’m an outlier – in countless conversations throughout Glass’ beta lifespan, whenever the topic of the Glass browser came about I’d typically be The Guy to fly the flag in defense of it. As in, the only guy.

When +Allen Firstenberg and I were writing Designing & Developing for Google Glass (http://www.amazon.com/Designing-Developing-Google-Glass-Differently/dp/1491946458), we initially dedicated a chapter to web access within the head-mounted display. And while in terms of capabilities the Glass browser stands toe-to-toe with other mobile browser platforms, two concerns always bubble up: How is most web content presented in such a small viewport?, and Does the experience of surfing the web on Glass contradict the wearable goal of microinteractions? That’s what we sought to investigate.

Sadly, our material was destined for a place on the cutting room floor, as it just didn’t jive with the rest of the discussion about the system…which in some people’s minds probably serves as a metaphor for the Glass browser overall. Ouch.

So here's our lost chapter, "Wearable web access with Google Glass". It’s still worth knowing what the potentials are for experiencing browser-based content on your head when you inevitably need to step out of the timeline and get on the Web.

Enjoy!
