Yesterday was more full of snow and dead batteries and work and a family movie than it was of Glass. It’s interesting just to see the family reactions to Glass, though (which is still only at home). Yesterday morning I had an immediate success when I put on Glass and asked for the weather and had it in seconds. When Toni came down for her coffee, I tried to show her, and asked Glass for the temperature. Glass decided “temperature” meant “picture” and took a picture of Toni in her bathrobe and then when I tried to ask it about the temperature again it tried to email the picture to a couple of guys I did a podcast interview with a few months ago. Not good. As far as I know, I managed to intercept the bathrobe picture before it got mailed. Later, when I wanted to take a picture of the snow outside our house while I was waiting for AAA, it worked great. But now Toni thinks Glass is no better than Siri, and I hope that she’s not right. The household seventeen-year-old does well with Siri, but Toni and I both struggle to get anything useful. Toni seems – at best – to be mildly amused that I brought Glass home.
Katie is mostly interested in the fashion implications – does Glass confer a unibrow and does it block your eye? (no and no, IMHO)
Today I am back at it trying to learn a little since I plan to take Glass out to a party tonight I have successfully snugged it to my iPhone with bluetooth and updated some Google contacts and dropped those into Glass. I am finding that I need to go update my Google electronic self which is way more out of date than my IOS self or my FaceBook self. That, I suppose, was predictable. I failed at getting “Wink” to calibrate, so I will not be winking any pictures into existence. I can wink with my left eye, but I can’t wink one-eyed right and Glass appears to know the difference between a wink and a blink.
I basically feel like I still don’t know very much. I did manage to find my pictures. The picture up above is the photo of the snow outside our house that I took with Glass.
