Google Glass Modified And Attached To A Regular Pair Of Sunglasses

Google Glass Modified And Attached To A Regular Pair Of SunglassesThere’s nothing wrong with the design of Google Glass, although we guess there are some who might prefer if it looked more “normal”, as it if it managed to blend with current eye-wear as opposed to looking like something out of a sci-fi movie. While the next version of Google Glass remains to be seen, Sean Percival decided that instead of waiting for Google to do something about it, he would take it upon himself to redesign Google Glass to look cooler. What he did was that he took apart Google Glass before attaching the key components to a pair of sunglasses, which in his case was a pair of Persols.

The Google Glass component was attached to the glasses via a black cable tie, which while not the neatest solution, helped it blend it with the frames, so for those of you planning to go with patterned frames, you might have a tougher time trying to get it to blend. All in all attaching Google Glass to his Persol pair of sunglasses was not too difficult and according to Percival, he noticed a drop in people staring at him as he was out. In any case while this does help cut down on the weird/curious looks that people give you, there are establishments out there that have made it illegal to wear Google Glass, so this is worth taking note of.

    Google Glass Store Reportedly Being Built On A Barge In San Francisco Bay

    Google Glass Store Reportedly Being Built On A Barge In San Francisco Bay

    Here’s a crazy news. Apparently our favorite internet search giant is building a Google Glass Store in San Francisco Bay, this according to KPIX which claims that it has learnt that Google is building a “floating marketing center” just to promote its wearable gadget. Only recently a rather mysterious barge was spotted moored to Treasure Island, San Francisco. There’s a large structure built on top of the barge that’s raising obvious questions. CNET weighed in as well, voicing the possibility that perhaps its a new data center for Google. But doesn’t a “floating marketing center” have a better ring to it?

    KPIX further claims that Google will actually tow the completed structure from Treasure Island to SFO’s Fort Mason, there the barge will reportedly be anchored and the facility opened to the public. Apparently construction has been stopped since Google doesn’t have a permit. A BCDC, that’s the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission, official is quoted as saying that discussions with Google have been held on “hypothetical operations” on the water, but it hasn’t clarified exactly what it intends to use the facility for. The director of the commission is quoted as saying that to warrant a permit, Google will have to satisfy them that what it is building can’t be built on land. A project like this would obviously be heavily funded, and if a permit fails to come through, Google might end up losing a substantial amount of money. Google itself hasn’t commented on this report, it hasn’t acknowledged that it has anything to do with this barge structure or that it is indeed building a “floating marketing center” for Google Glass, which by the way, isn’t due until 2014.
