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.

Very disappointed from the API

Hi,

after watching the API introduction, I'm very disappointed. Is it possible to create LBS or AR apps? It was not mentioned and from such a simple API I really doubt it. So all these phantasies about identifying people just from looking at them, are far beyond the possibilities of Glass.

Come on dude! It is just an API, and an alpha stage API: it can be modified, improved, rewritten, deprecated, refactored, etc. If the API does not do what you want right now, that can change easily in next releases.

The fundamental design of the API itself is disappointing. The Mirror API is simply a web service. You can't write apps that run directly on Glass.
