Becoming a Google Glass Explorer

google glass

I’m now officially a Google Glass Explorer (or #GlassExplorer)!

You’ve probably heard of Google’s “Project Glass.” It’s the virtual reality display that sits on your face like glasses, and allows you to receive and send messages, or to make video or audio recordings.

Here’s a video, giving you a first person view of “what it’s like.”

I’ve been officially selected to try out Google glass, based on a submission I wrote for their competition.

On Feb 26 I wrote:

#ifihadglass it would be to use it as a mindfulness teaching tool, plucking moments of beauty from ordinary life, creating full-immersion audiovisual haikus to share with the world, showing how every moment is a opportunity for experiencing appreciation and wonder.

Today +Project Glass wrote:

Hi Bodhipaksa, thanks for applying! We’d like to invite you to join our #glassexplorers program. We’ll be sending you a private message with more details in the coming weeks — keep an eye on our stream at Project Glass.?

Wow!

Now I still have to pay for the things, and I believe the cost is about $1500, but I’m psyched to have been chosen, and I’m going to be wandering around for the next few days, imagining I’m wearing Google Glass, and getting a feel of how I could use it as a teaching tool. I already have some interesting ideas.

I’ll be sure to keep you posted.
