We still don't know what exactly happened during Google Glass Foundry, last month's two-day hackathon designed to let developers get their hands on Google's wearable computing project for the first time. Developers signed nondisclosure agreements, and haven't been forthcoming when we've asked them to comment.

But while Google isn't saying much, the company did post a gallery of pictures from the event today to the Google Developers page on Google+. The event took place in both New York and San Francisco, and apparently the developers were quite busy. Says Google:

They formed teams and built over 80 new ways to use Glass. Everyone who demoed received a special edition glass bar identifying them as a "Pioneer" of this next generation of computing. Eight hard-working teams won the grand prize: Google will pick up the cost of their Glass Explorer Edition.
