Introduction to
Google Glass
Google Glass is a wearable mobile device that brings the
experience of one’s smartphone or tablet to into dialogue
with the human body’s personal audiovisual environment.
Google Glass is “a heads-up display for real life” as stated
by Marques Brownlee in his video, Top 5 Wearable Tech!
(Early 2014).
What is Google Glass?
How does Google Glass work?
Google Glass is tethered to one’s smartphone or tablet
through the MyGlass application for Android or iOS.
Google Glass receives and sends notifications back to
one’s smartphone or tablet in combination with data via
Bluetooth and WiFi.
Google Glass is operated with a combination of voice
commands and touch controls.
#ifihadglass
The initial release of Google Glass was offered to those who
submitted entries for the #ifihadglass competition via Twitter and
Google Plus.
Those accepted by Google had the opportunity to be among the
first to purchase and test Google Glass out in the world.
I applied to the #ifihadglass contest via Twitter in February 2013.
I received Google Glass with support of The Metropolitan
Museum of Art in July 2013.
Who are Google Glass Explorers?
Google Glass Explorers are the beta testers for Google
Glass.
Google Glass Explorers develop new applications and
experiment with use cases for the device in community with
others.
Google Glass Explorers have diverse interests, professions
and skills.
Google Glass at The Metropolitan Museum of Art
*Internal Incubation: personal trials and group demos for staff to incubate
ideas for Google Glass' future application throughout the Museum
*Artists and Developers: encourage study of collections; connect
audiences to programs; foster new creativity in the arts
*Done in collaboration with Met Media Lab, lead by Don Undeen, who is also a Google Glass Explorer.
Collegial Outreach: personal trials and demos of Google Glass facilitated
by Neal Stimler for the museum community
What can one do with Google
Glass?
Discover: learn new information faster than ever before, thereby
building personal knowledge and enhancing professional skills
Dialogue: more fluidly interact with applications and people in
our daily lives
Document: close the gap from cognition to capturing the world,
whether for further reflection or immediate cultural contribution

Museums and
Google Glass
Google Glass could have a transformative impact on museums
as smartphones and tablets did previously.
As a wearable technology, Google Glass makes possible
immersive interactions with museums onsite and online.
People may come to better understand the present and imagine our
future when Google Glass is engaged with museum collections and
programs.
Should Museums Engage Google Glass?
Google Glass as a Mobile Device in Museums
Google Glass should primarily be treated in the BYOD or Bring Your
Own Device category of wearable devices in museums.
Museums ought make their content openly available for use by
popular third party mobile applications paired with Google Glass.
It may be appropriate for museums to lend Google Glass or develop
custom applications to meet needs of specific audiences and
program objectives.

Why can Google Glass inspire us?
Curiosity: desire to investigate new humanistic understandings
of art and life
Connection: enhanced recognition of links between
applications, culture, information and social relationships
Creation: ability to make and contribute to the flourishing of the
arts and industry
WHAT, Museum USE CASES and WHY of Google Glass
Discover, Dialogue and Document are what we can do with
Google Glass.
Museum use cases for Google Glass impact Conservation,
Education, Digital Media and Scholarship.
Curiosity, Connection and Creation are why we can be inspired
by Google Glass.
Google Glass…
...can more intimately connect us to the
revelatory experiences and people that define
meaning in our lives, like art and museums.
