I'm carrying out reseach in to machine vision applications using Glass, as far as I'm aware the Glass camera uses infinity focus. Does anyone know what the hyerfocal distance is for the Glass camera? Or if anyone knows the lens multiplier that would also help.

If the camera in Glass is much like most of the small devices we've tested in our lab, it might be a good idea to put individual units on a bench of some sort and calibrate them one at a time. This is speculation on my part, of course, but I doubt Glass's camera is much better than typical celphone cameras. IIRC the v2 camera is a different device from V1, and there's no guarantee that Google hasn't changed suppliers at varying times in the production runs.

You could always have changed this by going into your Google Now settings on your phone or computer and changing the localisation. There has been support for temperatures to displayed in Celsius for a long time.

Is ability to upload directly to YouTube gone? I don't see it listed in Glassware anymore (I"m still mourning loss to Twitter app). Still use glass for video, photos to G+, and GPS. Any other app recommendations? Looking forward to the next version of Glass (we have two). Cheers!

+charles webster +Jason Blount  Thanks for getting in touch. The YouTube Glassware is no longer available to install on Glass. Some partners used the XE program to test different ways their services could interact with Glass. We're looking forward to continuing to learn from our partners as we work on what's next for Glass. +Douglas Andersen had a great suggestion though—you can still share to YouTube from Google Photos on your phone, once it's uploaded from Glass via Auto Backup. Feel free to get in touch if you run into any other questions. https://support.google.com/glass/answer/3079854?hl=en&ref_topic=3063354

+Marquis Mathis Just a dumb speculation about a little gadget, given the history of the gadget and its position in Google's pipeline.

Since that the explorer program has ended, if I purchase glass through a third party, like amazon or ebay, will it function normally? I'm considering purchasing a pair or two for research purposes. I heard something about a code needed and now that the explorer program has ended the codes are no longer valid. Not sure about that though.

I have a few questions being a fairly new Explorer.

1. Does WiFi use more battery than bluetooth?
2. Does anyone have Glass freeze up sometimes when doing a Google search or not display the screen at all. My Glass seems a little slow at times, even with 2GB of RAM.
3. Battery saving tips? If anyone knows of any.

If there are other places to find this info, please let me know. I'm new to posting here.

How safe is it to take Glass out in the sun? Anything I should be aware of? Thanks fellow explorers.

If you want see the info for all processes, use adb shell dumpsys meminfo. It's probably worth piping the output to a text file

I have not checked into this community for some time and hearing so much news lately about MeerKat and Twitter buying Periscope, has anyone developed a replacement for google hangouts on glass since it was removed? Any easy way to sideload video hangouts without downgrading?

Hi +Benjamin Roche - there are a couple of live streaming Glassware apps available in MyGlass, but nothing I've heard of as of yet to replace video calls. And that's sad, as it was touted as THE killer feature of Glass in the early videos.

I have not had to reset my Glass for a few months now... I have learned to work around its little "quirks".
Will Google continue to provide support for the last Glass update? and for how long?
Meaning, if I reset my Glass today, will the last update be downloadable? and for how long?
Will Google allow ex-explorers to download the update file to a personal computer so when they finally do not support this version of Glass we could have at least this last version for a backup?

I believe all updates for the explorer devices are done until they release the consumer model. On the up side, they will still take care of you if the unit goes bad past the warranty.
