  • Marco P.

    Guys, should i help here? I can help take the reins.

    October 25, 2013

  • Don H.

    Good point, Tass.
    1. Do you own one?
    2. If not, did you ever wear one?
    3. What about those people that already wear glasses? Can they use Google Glass instead?
    many more questions......

      Yes I own one, I bought it to watch tech videos on programming while I commute in the company van. ( But that is not the Google Glass item.)But it just had a micro SD card and I would fill it up with like a hundred videos and watch it. Watching a mini screen was something like watching a very large TV at 6 feet. But the resolution is generally good for watching videos of computer screens. One eye on a monitor I would think is not quite as enjoyable as having two eyes.

      Tass, you should definitely join us for the next meetup.

      October 25, 2013

    Barry, I cannot make 11/07. Any Monday evening is good.

    To all: I have a location in Chinatown. If we have enough people interested in this, then the group may be reactivated.

    Ok, for those with no experience with eyeglass video just some of the drawbacks. And I am speaking from experience having owned a fairly late model duel video set of glasses. Firstly the video can be like watching a big screen TV. The stereo is truly far-out. But that is for stereo non transparent glasses. The Google items would tend I think to be more useful for business than entertainment. The weight of the mechanism is an issue and so is balance, it might be light but the Google item may be balanced to one side making the user try to seat it tightly. Ok that is an educated guess based on what I needed to do to keep the stereo glasses situated. Then there is the inevitable fall onto the floor. After spending a great deal of cash on the thing you hope it will not break. What might be better? Something far thinner and stereo but you are talking 8 to 10 years into the future with some new nano-optic technology yet to be put into production.

    Tass, it is good you can help.

    But there are many issues:

    1. We need a location.

    2. We need someone who works at Google, NYC
    or Google Glass team in CA.

    3. We need someone who is able to show us the benefit of Google Glass by actually wearing one, not just to show YOUTUBE videos.
    ..... If you fit one of the above, but not Sergey Brin, please post here.

    I am available to co lead. But I have no content prepared. I can help manage and organize.

    Barry:
    I am the Director and Curator of the Volumetric Society of New York, with over 1000 members. Here is what we have done so far - http://nyc.volumetric.co/photos

    I can absolutely help get this off the ground. I see you have space, and speakers. As you can see from our wide array of events, speakers, classes and workshops we have no problem pulling off something like this. Plus it is part of our mandate as the Volumetric Society of New York, this type of environment.

    You can email me at [masked]

    As I said May 23, this one is the worst meetup. It never happened.

    Khandokar, David and all:

    I agree. Whoever organized this event, is not a good manager.

    I was right when I posted my question May 2.

    This meeting never happened, and probably never will. It is not a good PR for Google. Whoever organized this event, you need to take a course in customer service.
