Google has just announced its take on the wearable tech market and its unsurprising to hear of people jumping on the new Android Wear trend. One of these eager beavers, and probably one of those that immediately make sense, is ...

My roommate/co-worker recently received an invite to Google Glass and we're looking to share the device with some of our co-workers. We're all java devs. We're looking for a 5th person to pay $300 in order to get 1 week with Glass every 5. Shoot me an e-mail! tristanerr@gmail.com

Sorry everyone. Somehow the original event became deleted. I've recreated it and the Medieval Times event is still happening. Sorry for any confusion.
 
Sorry everyone, I don't know what happened, but somehow the event was deleted. I've recreated it, but I can't get the original guest list back, so if you're attending please reconfirm on this event. Again, I apologize for the trouble.

The Intro:
Explorers far and wide! Come one, come all, as we travel back in time to an age of castles, knights, chivalry and pretty cool sword fights. Back to a time where Google Glass does not exist and these "Witch Goggles" invoke curiosity and a possible burning at the stake. It promises to be an enjoyable evening for all with good food, good company, and a very entertaining performance.

For this Glass and Relax, we will be heading to Medieval Times near Baltimore, Maryland. Currently I have the date set for 3/1, but we can adjust that prior to purchasing the tickets if a better date suits the group. These events are predominantly for Glass Explorers, but significant others and others are welcome too. While you may demonstrate your Glass to people if you like, this isn't meant to be a "What is Google Glass" meet up. This is meant to be something we can all attend, have fun, and leave with some enjoyable memories with your fellow Explorers.

The Details:
I've been in talks with the sales rep and we can get the corporate discount rate if we can get a group of 10 or more people together to go. There are some add on a we can consider too, one that I would recommend is the Royalty Package, which is an extra $10 per person, bit includes guaranteed first or second row seating, some commemorative items (pennant, booklet) and one DVD for the group (would be given out at random, I'm not a contender as we already have one). There's also the appetizers for an additional $9.95 per person, where we would have pre-show appetizers separate from everyone else. The appetizer thing may be nice, but I still would recommend the Royalty package over it.

-The base rate would be about $44 per person, or $54 per person with the Royalty Package. The only downside to doing the group thing is that the tickets must be purchased at least 2 weeks in advance, and they must be purchased by one person, meaning we would all need to pay the same person in advance, be that me or another of the group, in order to get the group rate. That is the portion that I do not like but I understand it. I would prefer not to have to pool the money before hand and have everyone purchase their own ticket, but we could get better rates grouping. -

The other option is we all purchase our own tickets via whatever means we like (sometimes groupon has deals) and just meet at the mall prior to the show. If we arrive as a group, we'll be seated as a group. This option is potentially more expensive, but I'm sure many of you would be more comfortable with that. We would all still need to agree on Royalty package or not though in order to still be seated together.

Update 
It looks like they have gift tickets on sale right now. a pack of 4 Royalty package would be $45 each. That's better than the group rate, but does not include gratuity, where the group rate does. I'm not sure when the gift tickets expire though, I didn't see that. If you want to go the separate ticket route (probably the better choice overall), this may be a good way to save a bit on your tickets.

Good evening guys, just wanted to say that personally, MLK DAY was a good topic to discuss yesterday. A lot of really good people from all walks of life bonded, shared, and celebrated in his memory! So I figured I'd carry it over today and engage in the sharing spirits.   With that said, have you guys seen this?

Have you all been to the exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery where people get to try on Google Glass? Do you know if you can bring your own Glass and still enjoy an "enhanced experience" or do they have a custom app installed on the exhibit's Glass?

Do we have a running list of what Glassware is being created in the DMV area? Also, I've only seen a handful of actual Glass Developer job postings. Is there any traction being made with hiring Glass Developers or is it being lumped into Android Developer job postings as a "Nice to have"?
