I'm selling my Google Glass. Got this from my last warranty exchange. Never even took it out of the box. Completely unused, foil is 100% intact. All original accessories and everything. I'm asking for at least $800. I will pay for shipping anywhere within the US.

You know... if you could seek Pokemon on your Google Glass they would be a runaway consumer hit overnight. What if they made Glass a real augmented reality device like they promoted it initially? Naaa... too easy. Why not just let Hololens or Magic Leap take your work and run with it. Same way Google makes self driving cars then keeps on testing and testing while everybody else beat them to market.

I said to the wife it's the app that Glass was built for. Heads up display and a touchpad for control.

OK, In light of Google not providing any type of repair service, I suggest Google Glass owners , and eventually your product will fail and need repair, Write to Google directly demanding some sort of repair service be available for a reasonable period of time. I think 3 years after the warrenty is expired would be reasonable. Many manufacturers do a flat fee rebuilt exchange. I think $350 for a rebuilt exchange would be appropriate. This service is extraordinarily needed due to the sealed case and unavailability of parts to repair third party. I have their general address. If someone knows the address to a more appropreate person within Google , please let me know
Sincerely,
Al

This was a beta for me too. I was testing Google to see how they handle hardware support before I started buying Chrome books, etc. I will sure think twice before buying Google hardware in the future.

I have a little project and could use some help. Here is what I am trying to do:

1. upload pictures automatically to one of the 'clouds'.
2. Two albums would be created:
A. One with the original raw images
B. One with the Google Enhanced version of each image.

Again, the more automated the process the better.

This is insane. Google says paid repair or paid rebuilt replacements are not offered. I'm completely shocked that repairs are not offered on a $1500 device less than 5 years old.
I could see if it was 10 years old, and parts are no longer available.or if it was a disposable $20 item. But in my life I have never seen anything like this.
In all honesty, I would never considor purchasing another device designed or manufactured by google that is not being offered with the ability to repair. Would you? I wish they told us the devices were irrepairable and disposable prior to purchase. It is reasionable and common to expect they would be for a reasionable period of time. Even old cell phones are repairable. Watch makers, offer a fee for replacement out of warranty. Who do I complain to?
Regards,

The LCD display as seen at the prism is lit, red. That is all it will show. Screencast does not work. it does not connect to bluetooth or wifi. It appears to have no semiconductor function except for the red light.

I feel like I just stumbled across penicillin. This is a weird fix, makes sense in a way. My glass just shows a red light on the display. I can turn it on and off, but all that happens is the red screen goes on and off.my foil is pretty badly rippled, but that's another problem. So before I do anything else, I'm going to kill the battery completely, then recharge completely, and see what happens. As the red light stayed on, the frame got a little warm. So I put it in the freezer while this happens, so nothing overheated. After an hour or so I took it out to see how it was fairing. Well it was frosted like a beer mug, and I couldn't see anything. So I wiped it (the prescription lens)off with a lens cloth, and as i did the front right one.....MY FOIL WAS ALMOST PERFECT!!! I smoothed out the rest from center outward with the lens cloth. The edges are a little off, but the middle is as smooth as a mirror! My guess it it caused and evaporated some condensation under the foil and it undid whatever process the rippling does, and lubricated it for smoothing. . I won't tell anybody to try this. Just relaying my experience.Where's my Nobel prize? ;')

Me too. I wish they'd not chosen the style of frame that they have, but what they want and are trying to do, at an affordable price is cool.

AMAZING UNDERGROUND HOUSES OF CENTRAL AUSTRALIA
In the ‘red centre’ of Australia, the surface temperature might be a hellish 40 degrees Centigrade or more. But in the underground miners’ homes called ‘dugouts,’ the mercury remains 19-25C, summer and winter.
The opal mining town of Coober Pedy has hundreds of dugouts. Half of Coober Pedy’s two thousand residents live in them.
The words Coober Pedy mean ‘white man underground.’ This frontier town came about after WW1, when returned soldiers burrowed into the earth like meerkats in search of precious opal.
In my upcoming novel SORRY TIME, there’s an exciting scene set inside a dugout that’s been plunged into stygian darkness after the power is switched off.  For my research I visited Coober Pedy, where a number of locals welcomed me into their subterranean residences. You can check out this YouTube clip about my trip – I think you’ll dig it!

Its a shame Pokémon go wasn't originally released for Glass. Heck I bet if it was executed properly and the cost of Glass was reasonable it could possibly bring the demand for Glass back.

I never did get glass at the time, and I regret it. Though the end has probably passed I will always have to wonder what experiences I have missed. Fortunately I could live vicariously through your posts. Thank you.

Hi, I'm sorry to bother you but I wanted to know if you had the same problem I had with Glass. They continuously displays me even after pausing the phrase "glass must cool down to run smoothly." So the processor limits the power and impossible to take a picture or video.
Thanks for your help.

i get the same thing when i record a 15-20 minute video. I figured it was just the limitation of the device.

Will the new Hangouts app update being pushed out in the play store that has video calling support bring back video chat for Google Glass?

No. That was removed at the OS level. Hangouts on Android has always had video chat. This adds the ability to send a video attachment.

I guess I just have to accept my Glass's death. I've grown quite accustomed to it. Hopefully the next generation will be better. I'll certainly contact google about known issues and repairability before buying it though. I don't think I'd spend this much on the next one. I hope also that they give the early adopters a special courtesy on the next one. It had become an integral part of my life, except for only being able to wear it on sunny days.At it's peak, using it on my motorcycle as a heads up GPS was really helpful. being able to work hands free, and the pandora worked (a biggie) , CNN headlines worked. and the sky looked like the limit. I shall continue to monitor the board.

I'd be worried it would crap out in a few weeks and have no support.most of them are over $500 which is too much of a gamble for me. If they were at least repairable I could see it.
