As I recall, you were a contractor involved with the software end of it. I find it exciting to have someone posting at CR who is involved.
Why not contract Craig (CR Guy) about a article for the CR Reviews page. I'm sure he would be interesting in posting a in depth review of the camera.
I'm an independent developer ... I could do an article but I'm rather tired of it after being interviewed with WSJ, BBC etc blah blah. If Craig asked I'd probably do it though but I'm too lazy to ask myself
So when will you be allowed to share the pictures you take?
It's my device so I've been sharing copiously. Check out my Plus account above or YouTube account (same name) for plenty of examples.
With all the paranoia around regarding authorities and public photography I can see many places treating this as a ‘spy’ cam and reacting accordingly, fascinated to see how this technology progresses.
I think the spy cam ideas are overblown. There are way better spy cams out there, check out the Memoto for one.
Could you tell us a little more about them, apart from the camera. What are they like to wear, what do the weigh, what are your thoughts on the security issue (anyone can pick them up and use them), how is it to read an email on them, what apps are you using? That sort of thing.
I've been posting copiously on Google+ so I encourage you to check there. In brief they are very comfortable and when you add in the phone call, SMS, email and new apps being developed (including by me
) then it's a hands down winner. Getting an email and responding to it effortlessly in a few seconds while you're doing whatever is really neat. It actually is easier than a cell phone.
'm mostly interested in the HUD aspect. What kind of info does it display and how easy is it to see?
Check my YouTube for a video showing the HUD menus (search for Dan McLaughlin Glass). It's quite readable at 640x340 IIRC. Given the relative focal lengths (approx 4') you don't want to read a novel on it however.
've said for a while, as a motorbike rider, that the next big innovation will be HUD for speedometer, gear position info etc.
Check out the motorcycle video a friend of mine and fellow Glass Explorer - Noble Ackerson - put on Google Plus. Also some neat sports ones. I'm neither into bikes or sports but he is a good source
