Glass Explorers of SXSW

This weeks show is a little different format. I was at SXSW (South by South-West) last week. On Saturday I partook in a discussion of Google Glass, and on Monday, those with Glass met at the Hotel San Jose – just a few blocks south of downtown Austin. About 40-50 Glass users were there to talk about their experiences. Google community manager Becca was on-hand with other Glass explorers to answer questions and exchange stories. Many different colored Glass was seen throughout the lobby – some with G-Pop bling on them, others with custom frames. All these explorers were fun...

How Google Glass is Changing the Sporting Event

This week we try a new segment – hopefully one that will be fun and entertaining. Glass Miami is a spin-off from the popular CSI Miami and Horatio Caine. While it might be a little dated, he didn’t have Google Glass back then. We take a crack at what Caine would have said if he was dawning the Google Glass. Also a big thank you to all who asked questions during the show. It made for a lively discussion!

Is Google Glass Getting Into Optometry?

Another great show in the books. Luke is back with his pair of frames and team cotton. We talk about the process it takes to put lenses into Glass, and Luke shows a little trick he does to keep irritation down. I came back from Las Vegas where I got some great video, including letting the barber from Bolt barbers shave my head while he wore my Google Glass. Not to try and top it, but over the weekend, my friend Alex invited me to the gun range to shoot his new Smith and Wesson. Of course, I broke out...

In the NameTag of Privacy

I am in Las Vegas for Tech Cocktail, and Luke pressured me into doing an episode. Therefore, I set down the yard margarita and stepped away from my table to do a show.

He talks about the next steps in getting prescription lenses put in. We also talk in depth about the price of prescription glass.

Galaxy Glass – Should Google Glass Lose the Camera?

Luke got his v.2 pair of Google Glass (and changed the color to cotton). We spend a little time looking for differences. He still hasn’t gotten the wink option to work yet.

Still not buying it… Samsung Glass? Rumors of Samsung working on their own Glasses surface. Some say Google is working with them. Others say they are building their own from scratch. Simpons...
