Topic: Google Glass is an Android device (almost)
We will cover wearable computing and functional fashion. Where it has been and where it is going.
Then, we will talk about the experience of picking up Glass (very different). What it is like to be in the Glass Explorer community.
We will have some fun playing with Glass as the audience is asked to issue command and see the response from Glass live (this is very interesting as Glass is still in beta)
We end with how to develop using the Mirror API and how to attach adb (debugger) and do native Android development on Glass. We will review my Nike+ Glassware project.
