Google Lucky bas... Joshua Topolsky got to use and test Google Glass. "Is it ready for everyone right now? Not really. Does the Glass team still have huge distance to cover in making the experience work just the way it should every time you use it? Definitely. But I walked away convinced that this wasn't just one of Google's weird flights of fancy. The more I used Glass the more it made sense to me; the more I wanted it. If the team had told me I could sign up to have my current glasses augmented with Glass technology, I would have put pen to paper (and money in their hands) right then and there. And it's that kind of stuff that will make the difference between this being a niche device for geeks and a product that everyone wants to experience. After a few hours with Glass, I've decided that the question is no longer 'if', but 'when?'" No wonder Google is going into retail. They need physical stores to sell this.

No, he builds all the electronics he uses at a hackerspace himself. ;-)

I don't know what hackerspace is?. But you're correct, I build all my own gear. Is there something wrong with that?

No, there is nothing wrong with that.

I assume you build your own desktop PC and not your mobile phone, tv or tablet for example ?

A hackerspace is a place where people come together to build stuff. As Wikipedia describes it: "A hackerspace (also referred to as a hacklab, makerspace, or hackspace) is a community-operated physical space where people with common interests, often in computers, technology, science, digital art or electronic art, can meet, socialise and/or collaborate."

That can be very useful, because not everyone has access to certain equipment or tools at home or even work, but at a hackerspace you can share.

I'd love to know the details of how you've built your own processor, displays, memory chips and all. That would make for a wonderful story here on OSNews.
