Hyper excitement around Google Glass We’ve all been very excited about Google Glass for a while now, and with good reason. Google made the most of this year’s festival to show off Glass, and provided us with some more details on how it works. For developers, Google provided them with some initial information about the Google Glass API. Google aims to make developing applications for Glass as easy as possible. With Google Glass being a new and unique form factor, they are setting a few rules. For example, it is important not to annoy users with too many notiﬁcations and distracting content. Google also showcased some existing apps for Glass. The Gmail app uses voice recognition to answer emails, and the New York Times app shows headlines and lets you listen to a summary of the article.
