Google Glass: Innovative Or Just Cool & Geeky?

No discussion of innovative products would be complete without touching on Google Glass. Despite being made of unobtanium, you have to score one this holiday season for tge innovators among us. But word has it you’ll be able to shop for it on a boat. Or eBay perhaps?

Now why go through all this hassle for a pair of four-eyes? Because devices like Google Glass, or “heads-up displays,” are the wave of our three-dimensional future. If you’ve ever played with Layar’s augmented reality browsing app, you know what we mean:

  • Heads-up display – Like a smartphone, Google Glass displays information in a hands-free format, and it’s voice-activated so you can communicate with the internet via voice commands.
  • Record your experience – Google Glass features a five-megapixel HD camera, with the ability to record 720p videos or capture images.
  • Ins and outs – A 640×360 display, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 16GB storage, 682MB RAM, ambient light sensing, and tri-axial gyroscope, accelerometer and compass round out its bleeding-edge feature set.
  • Interface — Naturally since we’re talking Google, it’s the Android operating system, and you control and manage Google Glass via an app called MyGlass.

Unfortunately, Google Glass is not yet widely available. They’re set aside for those interested in joining The Glass Explorer Program to help shape and contribute to the future of Google Glass. What are you waiting for?

Dazzling clients with her high-energy designs for over 18 years, Lainie lent her artistic talents to businesses that matter.  But that was then.

In 2008, after the economy took a turn, Lainie decided to be the change (instead of a victim) and began the process of “lifestyle redesign,” a joint decision between both her and her 11-year-old son, Miro. They sold or gave away all of of their possessions in 2009 and began a life of travel, service, and exploration. Lainie and her son Miro began their open-ended adventure backpacking through Central and South America. They are slow traveling around the globe allowing inspiration to be their compass. The pair is most interested in exploring different cultures, contributing by serving, and connecting with humanity as ‘global citizens.’

Today Lainie considers herself a digital nomad who is living a location independent life. She and her son write and podcast their experiences from the road at Raising Miro on the Road of Life.
