First impressions of Google Glass!

After a long wait, and the thoughtfulness of a friend who knew how much I wanted to get my grubby little hands one of these, I’ve finally landed an “explorer edition” of Google Glass.   So far, it’s worked great for what I wanted it for: which is taking pictures of the kiddos.   My youngest one in particular would always get distracted by the phone, whenever I pulled it out to take a picture or a video.   He’s still aware of what I’m doing with the Glass.   But, first of all, it’s far quicker to the draw.  All I have to do is touch the side of my face and say, “Okay, Glass, take a picture.” and it’s done.   Second of all, and more importantly, it’s less distracting to the little guy.   He doesn’t usually stop what he’s doing.   So, I’ve been able to take a lot of nice, quick, even sometimes surreptitious pics and videos that I wouldn’t normally have been able to get.   Mission accomplished.
