Gadgets, apps and plenty of other shiny things you probably don’t need– Cellular Chloe is here to share the latest and greatest wireless wonders!
After a long wait (a week would have been ‘long’ for me knowing other people had something I couldn’t get) anyway, after a long wait, I finally got invited to buy Google Glass. That’s how they roll, you have to be invited to do things Google invents, produces, releases, etc. When they come out with a new product or service, it’s so exclusive because you have to be invited! Well, I needed to have Google Glass, because that’s how I roll. I am an early adopter. I have a second job just so I can afford things related to my first job; like Google Glass. Okay, enough about how Glass and I met! Let me tell you what it is.
Imagine a pair of glasses…remove the glass and add a tiny projector with a glass screen above one eye and that’s about the size of it. Here’s an idea of what you’ll see.
That is a great video because it is extremely realistic. Over the next few days and weeks I will be testing, taking pictures, videotaping using Glass and I will share with you the results. If it wasn’t the middle of winter, I would get in some ziplining or hop on a rollercoaster but in the meantime all you might get to see is me shoveling snow or getting a manicure; hopefully not in that order!
One of my biggest questions was about the type of video files and photos it took. The photos are jpgs and the videos are shot as MP4’s making them all useable right away. As stated above the photos are taken with a 5MP camera and I have found the the quality to be pretty good. In fact, in case I hadn’t mentioned this earlier, the pictures can be taken hands and voice free (which is cool for the person taking them but perhaps has a bit of a creep factor the subject) by a simple wink of the right eye.
The videos are 720 x 1280 which is fantastic. Here is a quick video I took of Damon Scott, of which I am a guest every Monday night at 6:10pm.
Stay tuned for more of my adventures #throughglass!
