Google The day has finally come: Google has started shipping Google Glass to the lucky few early adopters. Now that it's shipping, Google has also unveiled a lot more about the API and the specifications of the device itself. While the company had already given out substantial details at earlier occasions, there are still a few surprises here.

You don't use your smartphone at eye level, you glance down on it. When someone is taking a picture of you or a video it's pretty evident; not the case with Glass.


I took pretty interesting pictures and movies keeping the phone at shoulder level. You just have to know where to aim and how much to tilt your phone. ;)

Pro-tip: if you attach your phone on top of your shoes and go in a hypermarket, you can get some amazing shots. ;)

Yes, another way is to get a good zoom lens for your camera and look around the neighbourhood at night...

My point was that the creepiness of Glass (and any similar technology) is effortless and discrete.
