Google’ Project Glass To Hit Developers Hand This Month End – Travel Techies Alert
Google’s Project Glass – the much awaited next generation augmented reality product from Google is finally hitting the hands of select developers this month end. In one of our earlier articles, we wrote about the possible use cases of Google Glass in travel industry. Today, Google had sent out invitations to select developers to attend a two day conference – one happens in NYC and the other one in SFO. Google calls this conference as ‘Glass Foundry’.
In the first day of conference, developers will be given an introduction about Glass and they will also be given one to experience.
In the second day, developers will be given ‘Mirror API’ to build some cool hacks around Glass. At the end of second day, the hacks will be presented to a team of guests.
Last year, Google’s co-founder Sergey Brin demonstrated Google Glass during the company’s annual developer conference. In this conference, Google accepted orders from developers for “Explorer Edition” of Glass for $1,500. Invitation to attend the two-day conference has been sent only to developers who signed up for this Explorer Edition of Glass.
So, in just two more weeks we will know the possible uses of Glass in travel industry. And, Apple is reportedly working on a Head Mounted Display (HMD) that’s similar to Google Glass. Let the Glass war begin, hopefully travel industry benefits in this next generation computing.
