The group is for individuals and teams currently involved or interested in developing for Google Glass. This group is also for Google Glass users, enthusiasts and those who are simply curious to learn about this new wave of wearable technology. Google Glass Explorers, Glass & Android developers, and the interested-in-trying-it-on are welcome!
Here is the long-term plan for this group -
1. Satisfy Curiosity – Although Google is rolling out a bigger explorer program right now, many of us are still wondering to find a way to get one. Many technocrats want to try them first, before committing $1500 for it. This meetup will have an opportunity to see them first hand and try out a few things.. and possibly find a way to get one!
2. Brainstorm & Implement Ideas - This meetup group is created for the most innovative developers and entrepreneurs to get together and discuss & create amazing things with Google Glass, the Mirror API, and GDK. We want to brainstorm new ideas and eventually follow through them till completion. This meetup will provide platform to find not only your next big ideas, but also your future project members!
3. Connect Google Glass Ohioans – There is currently no group in existence in Ohio that connects Google Glass owners. If nothing else, this group will at least provide a medium to connect with fellow Google Glass Ohioans.
We are planning to have monthly meetings on the same day and time, such as second Tuesday. Our first meeting will be on February 11, 2014 evening. We are still looking for place to host. For this initial kick-off meeting, we’ll follow the below agenda, and hopefully come up with more ideas for the upcoming meetups.
5:30 – 6:00 – Meet, greet, and eat
6:00 – 6:15 – Welcome, introductions, and agenda
6:15 – 6:45 – Google Glass Hands On
6:45 – 7:00 – Meetup group logistics
7:00 – 7:30 – “Picks, Tips, and Protips” and then wrap-up.
If you already have some ideas for Glassware, or have something to showcase, please let us know and we’ll add you to our agenda! Reach us at twitter @GoogleGlassOhio or here. Keep visiting this site for updates in agenda and look for formal meetup creation.
From Google Glass Pioneers to everyday tweeters who dream #ifihadglass, everyone is welcome. Hope to see you in February!
If you want to host this or future meetings, please DM us @GoogleGlassOhio
