The explorer program created a lot of interest in ‘wearable’ technology. My dad was invited to purchase a pair back in 2013 and I was able to go to Google-NYC with him to pick them up. It’s really interesting to see how certain developers utilize the wearable technology and the ideas that surfaced from the open platform. However, there were some drawbacks with the device. The fact that it is mostly used for micro-interactions throughout the day, it’s hard to justify spending the outlay of cash. Also, society generally reacts negatively when they feel there’s a possibility they are being recorded without their consent. As wearable technology becomes more mainstream in our every day lives, a larger discussion and acceptance to a newer technology may be more obtainable in the future. It’s a great technical invention but it did have poor battery life and the head-mount display was distracting to use. Customized for the right application, like real time video streaming for point-of-view applications, it would be very useful.

Google Communities have practically no resources to manage memberships. You can't even edit membership lists in any order but alphabetical. We've been getting a lot of fake memberships and spam from the Middle East and Asia, even more suspicious now that Glass has less public activity today than a year ago. I have removed all the accounts I've found promoting "pretty girls" or having no profile information. We should consider considering changing the membership from "open" to "requiring approval" to help filter this. The group would still be public, but we can place requirements (such as having a minimal profile or mostly posts promoting a business or not promoting adult material).

As of about a day ago, Glass is no longer saving videos to Google Photos (Images work fine). Anyone else experiencing this?

Sorry to hear that. DC is a very humid place in the summer. I really don't take my glass outside in July or August as they are really bad months.

Rebirth of #GoogleGlass  in enterprise. 
A next-gen Google Glass could show up in the enterprise, according to reports. The problem is the device would have as many strengths as weaknesses in the enterprise.

The patent (illustrated) was filed in June 2012 and awarded earlier this week. It details a headset that projects a virtual keyboard onto a person's skin, including their palm or arm.

It seems with the recent update of Android Wear to v1.3,  that Glass and Wear are finally working well together.

It seems as though for the past week I can't install certain glassware to my device. An example would be the calendar app which just continues to keeping loading in the myglass app. I've uninstalled the app and reinstalled, reset the glass and nothing seems to be working. Anyone know any fixes? +Google Glass​

+Tom Morley​ tons, you just have to side-load via ADB with debugging turned on, Glass drivers take a little finesse depending on model Hardware ID'S (Gen 1, 2, 3). Even the latest SDK tool driver needed the Hardware ID'S changed to get ADB working.

So, looks like the end of my Glass journey...

Google is steadfastly refusing to replace /or/ repair my Glass ... after offering to do so and taking my address.   The battery is dead ( only lasts 10-15 minutes now wall-clock time. ) so without a battery repair my Glass is effectively an extra-awkward pair of prescription glasses.

Over the last year, they have replaced my Glass multiple times ... most often due to the Foil issue, but also for a dead USB charging port, a glitched/bricked mainboard, and previously for a bad battery as well.

The last Glass they replaced was on 10/20/2014, and I participated in the exchange for v1.5 units choosing to purchase mine on 12/14/13.

TL;DR: "We won't exchange the Glass, and we won't fix the battery."

Here's the email exchange.  I have XXX'ed out the serial number and private info ( phone numbers )

Hi Martin,

Thank you for calling Glass Support today.  We are looking to replace your Glass.  Can you verify your shipping address for me?

I also would like to ask you to answer the following questions for me.

What happened before issue/breakage?

Did any solutions or liquid come into contact with Glass?

What was the environment/temperature like?

How was the device stored or carried while not in use?

How is the device charged?

Thanks for your help!

Cheers,
Reuel

My Reply

My shipping address is:

Martin Bogomolni
XXXXX
XXX XX, XXXXX

>> What happened before issue/breakage?

Just normal usage.  I use glass every day ( I have my corrective lenses on Glass ), and it's part of my everyday office wear.   I've been using my backup glasses lately when outdoors, due to the high humidity this summer in Texas.

>> Did any solutions or liquid come into contact with Glass?

No.

>> What was the environment/temperature like?

Air conditioned office/home space.    Generally between 70-80F, mid 30%-40% humidity.

>> How was the device stored or carried while not in use?

On a cradle ( when charging ), in a hard case ( when in my bag )

>> How is the device charged?

Every evening, on my bedstand in a 3D printed cradle, using the original charger.

P.S.) I charged the unit back up, and sent in a feedback report with the system log.

Hi Martin,

There is another thing I need from you.  Can you provide me with the serial number of your Glass?

Thanks!

How long is the warranty period?   This unit was last replaced well within the last year.

Allright, how about a repair then?    The issue is with the battery.   Can I send it it and have Google repair the device?

I have found some of what I need.   I may end up 3D printing replacement parts for the case, because removing the outer case for the battery is a destructive process.
