In case you hadn’t noticed, I’ve been very quiet over here lately. About 3 years ago at the very first public Google Glass hackathon, I pitched the idea that became the seed for Vital Enterprises, my startup leveraging enterprise software for smartglasses, to empower manual workers performing high-skill high-stakes tasks.
Vital has grown rapidly and is now 100% of my focus, so for future updates please head on over to Vital’s blog at https://www.vital.enterprises/blogView Post
YourShow Updated for XE16
Google Glass is now running Android KitKat, which opens up some exciting possibilities for YourShow. At the same time, the update broke YourShow (and other third-party apps) so we’re releasing an updated version.
If you haven’t tried the installed version yet, and you don’t mind a bit of technical fiddling, give it a go! It offers a much smoother experience than the non-installed “Mirror API” version.
Latest version and install instructions are here:View Post
YourShow wins Google Glass GDK Hackathon
YourShow was selected as one of three winners of the Google Glass GDK “Sneak Peak” Hackathon! The new GDK version of YourShow works great and opens up possibilities for ninja features like realtime translation, coaching and sharing, hands-free slide control… so much awesomeness! We’re waiting not-so-patiently for the Glass app store to let everyone share the love.View Post
VitalsOnGlass at the Breaking Glass hackathon
For the Breaking Glass hackathon I teamed up with a Stanford surgeon and a few brave techs to build VitalsOnGlass. We wirelessly stream patient vital signs from a wrist-worn monitor to the Glass display worn by a surgeon, so they have essential information and alerts always in view without being distracted from their work! Good for everyone involved :)
Here’s a vid of our demo. Out of shot, there’s a mannequin wired up with ECG cables and the wrist monitor. The Glass display is also kinda hard to make out, but it’s showing this:
Woohoo! Now to take this to the next level.View Post
Google Glass 2 will be binocular, full vision
Google Glass 2 will be binocular, full vision. That brings full AR capabilities. THIS is the next tech revolution.
Glass apps coming to Play store
Glass apps coming to Play store? Google Glass now shows in my list of devices on Google Play app store, hinting that we’ll see Glass apps soon. It could be just in time for YourShow!
We can haz Glass
We can haz Glass! Ed and Ash looking chuffed at Glass fitting. (We also made a brave attempt to consume $1,500 worth of cheeze and beer!)
Google Glass an $11 Billion Market By 2018
I’ve been reading so many opinions on Glass, from derision to adulation. To me it’s absolutely clear that wearable AR will be as significant as the smartphone revolution, for one reason above all: it’s empowering.
Glad to see some positive market analysis:
“Despite the clunkiness and awkwardness of the early beta version of Glass, we think computerized glasses will become a mainstream product. We at BI Intelligence expect unit sales of Glass to climb sharply in the next few years, to 21 million units in annual sales by year-end 2018. At $500 per unit, this equates to a $10.5 billion annual market opportunity.”View Post
We haz integration
We haz integration! I can send a Google Slides presentation all the way from Google Drive to Google Glass, with YourShow doing a whole crapload of munging and scraping and gurning to get it there.
