Dear Glass explorers, a recent study shows that Google Glass can make texting while driving safer. I wonder if this is true.

Thank you for your opinion if you have the experience!
Texting while driving is risky and can cause serious traffic accidents. When texting, drivers need to put not only their attention but also their hand/mouth and eyes on the cell phone. This distraction has become one of the major risk factors for car drivers. Unfortunately, this behavior is quite common, especially in young adults. Recent …

Is there a way to add the twitter app for glass now. I removed it before they stopped supporting it. Thanks

+Marquis Mathis Yeah, they don't support glass so the app isn't available. I'm looking for a work around as people who had the app installed before Twitter took it off glassware are still able to use the app.

Does anyone know of a venue to look up hospitals or doctors that would accept +Google Glass​​ donations? I really just don't use mine very much anymore and see a lot about them using them. It might as well have a good and useful home!

Hi Cason! We work with a group of providers at Mercy Health in Muskegon Michigan along with a medical training program in Grand Rapids Mi for training new residents with CPR on Glass along with checklists for properly complete ting complex medical procedures such as central line placement and lung decompression techniques along with first responder training. We would be happy to chat! We may also be able to get you a tax write off for the donation.

Is the reason why the old ex XE program owners only being able to do ten second videos because of the program being slowly pulled apart until it bricks the old model glass along with the old XE program?

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.

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

I'm just inquiring if there has been any cooling device for Glass in development? I live in a hot climate area where I work for a non-profit organization and we have been using Glass for our projects but it overheats easily. I have looked through the community for information on a device that can cool Glass down from overheating and I haven't been able to find anything unless I overlooked it? Thank you!

I have had the problem with every set I have had. I did find out though, if you run less apps and keep removing past recordings, it runs a little bit cooler.
LOL, mine actually got up to 125 degrees F once! I had to pull it off my head before I could get burned.... the metal band seems to keep the heat and just makes it worse.
I have to limit my videos to about 5-10 minutes, then download to a laptop and let it cool for about 20 minutes, makes a 2 hour project last all day......but hey... I decided to get a glass instead of a go-pro.

Glass program has officially closed Hannes. In general the restrictions that apply in the US or Britain apply elsewhere, eg. no porn.

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.
