"Will You Marry Me" #throughglass (Google Glass) Images

Google Glass is becoming more ubiquitous every day. There are countless videos out there of men proposing to women #throughglass - just search for "Marry Me Through Google Glass" on YouTube! I'll include the #throughglass proposal where I got the image collage photos from: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLIsyeLvJXc Here's another sample of a proposal #throughglass: And one last one: Lastly, I'd like to add a friend of mine's wedding that was interesting from start to end!

Below you'll see an image: Wore Google Glass at her wedding (along with many of the guests!)

Google Leaves the DARPA Robotics Challenge, Robots, Robots, and More Robots!

Google's HRP-2 Schaft Robot

Google is thought by many to be the front-runner in robotics. The company's interest in robotics is huge indeed; it's in the "Robotics Business Review's Top 50 List" (RBR50).

In 2003 Google acquired seven (7) awesome and technologically diverse robotics companies: Boston Dynamics, Bot & Dolly, Holomni, Industrial Perception, Meka Robotics, Redwood Robotics, and Schaft, Inc. At the end of this post I'll add some cool videos about each company's robots. Google pulled its "Team Schaft" HRP-2 robot out of the Pentagon-funded DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC). Although the 3-year competition is less than halfway finished, the Schaft robot was the obvious front-runner.

Introducing DVF (Diane Von Furstenberg) – Made for Glass

Current Google Glass for Style & Rx's

I just returned from Google I/O 2014! I have a lot of fun info, photos, & news to share with you on #wearables, #googleglass, #throughglass (a very funny story there to come!) and more Google awesomeness. 25 days ago Engaget (where you will find more announcements from Google I/O 2014) announced "Google's first fashionable Glass frames are designed by Diane Von Furstenberg". Today I received an email from Google Glass News that there is a celebration (think "launch") July 28 & 29th 2014 at DVF stores in Boston, Dallas, LA, Miami, and New York where you can try them on, purchase frames and shades. Since everyone can't make it to these events, you can purchase curated combinations of DVF Made for Glass collection at NET-A-PORTER (check out how interesting this site is - it's a luxury fashion site - with Google!) Below are the styles featured on the NET-A-PORTER site: We all know that Google isn't done designing and developing the features and look on … [Read more...]
