Let's meetup, pass the Glass, and talk about a Glassified future.

Meetup will have two parts. In the first half we'll look at particular Glass apps. In the second half we'll network and have a less formal discussion about the Glassified future.

My Glass will be here. I'm happy to load up any apps that people might want to check out on it. I'll setup an adb connection to the device so the whole group can see what's up on the Glass screen. If you have Glass, bring it and be prepared to share.

    A lot of fun, and very informative. Kudos to John for a great event (and one he had to unexpectedly pay for :0...hopefully the donations covered most of it)

      No problem Brian - I made out alright - suggested donation participation was ~100%

      John, don't know if you have any say in it but when I realized I could not attend I searched for a Can you Still attend checkbox but could not find one. Is there a way on Meetup of calling it up...keystrokes. Hate to occupy a seat and not being able to attend a last minute.

    Thanks to John for setting up the meeting and hosting. Also thanks to WorkBar for providing the event space ... and to the early adopters for sharing their thoughts and allowing us to demo glass. Did the Transhumanism movement already happen and we were too busy glancing at our SmartPhones to notice?

    Pocketable Tech->Wearable Tech->Bioimplanted Tech->Cyborgism?

    Thank you John, Don and Ryan. Special thanks to John and Don for letting use the Glass. It was awesome.

    Great meetup and thanks to everyone who let us try their Glass! Another event would be interesting once the GDK is released.

    Thank you to all who came, especially the Explorers, and a big shoutout to Ryan Warner for giving an impromptu Mirror API talk and explaining what "officially recognized Glassware" really is. The "suggested donations" were really helpful too.

    At the Google Glass meetup today my myopic eyesight limited my access to the avant-garde hitech gadget. Still impressive wearable computer. @Don thanks for tryouts

    Great introductory event. Hope we can dig into challenges and app ideas for the next one, now that everyone has gotten their playing with the devices out of the way.

    Gonna mark my RSVP as yes, but not 100% sure. Always such a pain getting into Cambridge after work hours.

    I'll bring Glass if I end up making it.

  • John Rodley

    If one of the Explorers could get Twitter and Facebook going on their Glass for a demo that'd be really helpful. I turned them on, but I'm not getting anything and don't have time to fiddle with it.

    Is there on-street parking at this venue?

    July 8, 2013

      Yes - Lots within a four block radius, including big lots, garages, most meters are free after 6.

    I am likely to be teaching a class on heads-up displays for HCI in the fall that would focus on Glass. Looking for suggestions on material to include.

    July 5, 2013

  • John Rodley

    We are set for Workbar. I have some requests for the group.
    1) If there are apps you want to check out on Glass, please post the request here so we Explorers can be ready.
    2) For those with Glass - I would like to get a BIG Glass-only hangout running on the big screen at some point during the evening. Please add me on G+ and send me your Glass gmail account info so I can add you back and we can get this hangout going without a lot of fiddling. My Glass gmail is jvrodley at gmail dot com.
    3) I need ideas for keeping track of the Glass at this meetup since there'll be more people than devices. I'll have stickers to put on the side of the things and I was thinking of balloons perhaps?

    If we can put this off until after 7/10 I'll have my Glass. I'll send a note about this meetup to the list of Boston Explorers I have. I might be able to get us a cool, well lit place to hold this.

    June 20, 2013

      I have a fondness for Workbar Cambridge since I work there and know the folks. Huge space, all sorts of amenities ... I'm talking to them about it now, if it falls through I'll let you know.

    I'm in the middle of moving cross-country with my Glass, and will be in Boston by the 10th, so I'd like to second that date.
