Google is working on some really futuristic projects like self-driving cars, a network of balloons to bring the world internet, and Google Glass. After seeing the Project Glass demo video at the 2012 I/O conference where they live-streamed four skydivers having a video hangout on their parachute ride to the roof of the convention center, I knew I wanted to work with this technology at some point.
Only developers who attended 2012 I/O got to pre-order the Explorer Edition, but earlier this year Google held a contest looking for others who would want to be a part of shaping the future of Glass. You entered on Google+ or Twitter with the hashtag #ifihadglass.
I saw it trending on Twitter, and this video about what it’s like to use Glass, and entered on a whim. So excited when I found out I was one of winners!
@DonnaBotti You’re invited to join our #glassexplorers program. Woohoo! Make sure to follow us – we’ll DM in the coming weeks.
