Google Glass Explorers

So project Google Glass has finally reached the lucky few 'Explorers'. Engadget demonstrate here a point if view video of playing fetch with the dogs. It's certainly a different perspective to the typical hand shaking smart phone video approach, and it's quite engaging too. It also leaves the filmers hands free whilst filming which is why he can stroke the dogs and play fetch. The general consensus though was that Glass had a little to offer around the home when computers, tablets and smartphones are all vying for your attention whenever you receive an email of a Google+ notification already. Here is the article on Engaget: http://www.engadget.com/2013/04/26/living-with-google-glass-day-two/
