Meeting Minutes: 1. Introduction Video a. Shows everything Glass can do including taking pictures, recording videos, and giving directions all without using your hands. 2. Vision Behind Glass a. The vision behind glass is to avoid looking down all the time at a cell phone, which has caused social isolation. b. It is also “emasculating” because you have to stand there and rub a glass screen with nothing to feel. 3. Motivation/design a. The design of Glass is meant to free your hands, your ears, and your eyes. b. The glasses concept frees the hands. It is positioned above the level of sight so it frees the eyes. The sound conducts to bones in your cranium, so it frees the ears. 4. Original vision for Google a. Information will come to you as you need it, you will need no search inquiry. 5. Journey to where Google Glass is now a. Project has lasted just over two years. b. The design has to be comfortable. The first design was huge, heavy, and uncomfortable. c. The camera was a surprise because the versions did not have a camera. 6. Wrap up a. The concept opens your eyes to how much of your life you spend inside your cell phone. 7. Q & A – Chris Anderson a. When?- There a few early releases now, and Glass will officially be available later this year. b. How?- You have to apply online and search “If I had Glass”. c. How much?- It costs $1,500 now, but the price will drop once the product is officially launched to the mass market. d. Distracting? – Once you hear a ding, you physically have to look up. It is still less distracting than looking down at a phone, but this something they still have to refine further. Link: http://youtu.be/rie-hPVJ7Sw
