  11. 11. CONTACTS CODE POST /mirror/v1/contacts HTTP/1.1 Authorization: Bearer {auth token} Content-Type: application/json Content-Length: {length} { "id": “J_Murphy" "displayName": “Jenny Murphy", "iconUrl": "" "priority": 7 } JSON
  12. 12. LOCATIONS CODE public static void printLatestLocation(Mirror service) { Location location =service.locations().get(“latest”).execute(); System.out.println(“Location recorded on: “+ location.getTimestamp()); System.out.println(“> Lat: “+ location.getLatitude()); System.out.println(“>Long: “+ location.getLongitude()); System.out.println(“>Accuracy:”+ location.getAccuracy() + “meters”); } JAVA
  13. 13. DESIGN PRINCIPLES AS STATED BY, Timothy Jordon, Senior Developer, Google. • Design for Glass. and it’s unique interface. • Don’t get in the way. no intermodal dialogs. • Keep it timely. Glass is “Right Now” Device. • Avoid the Unexpected. Don’t surprise the users.
  14. 14. DESIGN PRINCIPLES APP LIMITATIONS: •No charging for apps. •No ads. •No face recognition. •No App data to be stored on the User Device.
  15. 15. BENEFITS • Benefits Education. • Live Information When You Need It. • Health Monitor interface. • Assisting Busy Lives. • Documentaries In First Person View. • Video Conferencing Alternative. • Works Together With Any Smartphone & Its Apps.
  16. 16. DISADVANTAGES • Recording and privacy issues break a few codes of ethics. • As of right now the cost of Google glasses ranges from $1,500- $3,000 and Available in USA only. • Battery life needs to be drastically extended. • You still need your phone. • Glass might give you a ‘nerdy’ look.
  17. 17. CONCLUSION and FUTURE SCOPE • Augmented Reality to next level. • Partnerships with sunglass retailers such as Ray- Ban and Crizal to provide prescription glasses. • Will provide Developers more opportunities to design User Oriented Applications. • Far more lighter version in future. • Will be shipping to public @ Rs. 15000/-
