The revolution won't be televised, but it may get livestreamed over Google Glass.
At least, it's taking a step in that direction on Wednesday as writer and artist Molly Crabapple livestreams her latest drawing project with a hacked pair of Google Glass. Inspired by Edgar Degas' paintings of dancers, Crabapple will be drawing the adult film actress and aerialist Stoya as she moves through her warm-up routine.
And yes, Stoya will be clothed.
The project, called "Glass Gaze: An online performance with hacked Glass and Stoya," is multifaceted. It looks at the relationship between the artist'… Read more
A wink can convey all kinds of meanings. But what if you're looking at someone and their eyeglasses wink back at you?
Wink Glasses 2013 spectacles aren't designed for flirting or sharing inside jokes. But they do "wink" by fogging up for a split second.
PARIS -- Google Glass is like the Apple Newton, the influential but famously premature mobile organizer, according to the high-profile investor Fred Wilson from Union Square Ventures.
Speaking at the LeWeb conference here on Tuesday, Wilson said he believes the technology eventually will catch on, but likely built more unobtrusively into regular glasses. For now, he indicated, it's too primitive and awkward.
Apple's Newton was a commercial failure, famous for its handwriting recognition failures. But it turned out to pave the way for a mobile era, first the personal digital assistants (PDAs) popularized by Palm and then the … Read more

It wasn't cheap to buy into the earliest round of Google Glass testing, but Google is now offering an unexpected benefit: a free hardware upgrade.
In an e-mail sent to early Google Glass owners on Wednesday, the company offered to upgrade the $1,500 Explorer Edition headsets to a newer model for free. Google said that the newer model is faster, more durable, and compatible with upcoming prescription frames and the recently announced accessories such as the mono-earbud and the sunglasses attachment Shades.
The Xbox 360 was released in the fall of 2005 and the PlayStation 3 a year later. Back then smartphones weren't all that smart, the mobile market was dominated by players like BlackBerry and Nokia, and gaming was split between consoles and PCs.
Everything changed, however, when Apple released the iPhone; and once again with the release of the iPad. The mobile revolution has changed the way we share, consume media, and play games. You would be hard-pressed to find someone without a cell phone these days, let alone a smartphone.
To take advantage of the increased adoption rate … Read more
A woman issued a ticket in California for wearing Google Glass while driving is fighting back.
In a tweet, Cecilia Abadie said that she pleaded not guilty to the charge in court on Tuesday morning. The self-proclaimed geek and Google Glass pioneer has acknowledged that she was wearing the high-tech specs while driving but claimed they were powered off. As such, her contention is that simply wearing Glass behind the wheel is not against the law.
