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.

That is fantastic, keep it up. I'm also not a big fan of following the fashion.

For example I tried to stay away from HDMI and DVD as long as possible. At least it was enough to have some of their DRM-methods broken.

I know there is a hackerspace in the next town, but I have yet to visit it.

Beauty, I see there's one in Melbourne. I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the link ;)

Looks like they have some interesting projects. Aduino stuff is pretty cool ;)

I hope it works out, more people at hackerspaces can't be a bad thing, right ?
