Glass elevators are the fastest and easiest way to move up and down buildings, and the world is set to witness the next great advancement in transportation when Google Glass opens its doors on April 8th.
The first public tour of Glass, which will also have a Google Cardboard-like augmented reality experience, is scheduled for June 8th at Google I/O in San Francisco.
A Google spokesperson said the event is a collaboration between Google and the Glass team, with the intention of opening up Glass to everyone, including those who are already wearing Glass.
The company is also encouraging developers to get involved in its first public beta for Glass, and is offering a $25,000 prize for the first developer to bring a Glass experience to life.
But there’s a catch.
Developers will need to be developers to wear Glass.
“Google Glass is not for the faint of heart, and it is not a toy.
This is a real, serious device, and anyone who’s used Glass will know what a real Glass experience is like,” Google wrote in a blog post on the Glass Explorer blog.
“It takes real effort to get used to.
You need to practice being there, because there is a lot of learning and experimentation that’s going on.
Google Glass has been designed to be a game, so it is also a learning experience.
We encourage developers to make that effort and to be brave enough to try out the Glass app before anyone else.”
Developers are also being asked to wear the Glass as part of the beta, and Google is offering $1,000 to anyone who makes a Glass-compatible app.
It will be open to developers for up to two weeks, after which the company will begin requiring that developers put in their apps with a Google Glass-enabled phone and provide the required documentation.
The developer will then receive a $500 prize for their app.
Google will also be holding a “Glass Developer Conference” at the same event.
The Glass Explorer team also wrote about Google’s vision for Glass: “As a result of Glass’ open API, developers can build a wide range of applications that leverage the Google Glass platform, which gives them a much more powerful experience than ever before.
Google has also designed Glass with the user in mind, so that it provides an integrated, easy-to-use experience for the masses.
Glass will be a powerful platform for the future, but we have an even bigger mission for Glass.”
For developers, Glass is a way to see what it’s like to work in the world.
Google’s mission is to make Glass as accessible as possible to the average person, and to give them the tools to help make their job more comfortable and meaningful.
Glass, of course, is also designed to get you out into the real world.
For the developers, though, that means they will be walking through the real streets of a real city, with people they can interact with and ask questions about, or even ask questions of.
The event, the first public Google Glass tour, will also include live video of the glass-powered Google Hangouts conference, which Google is holding in San Jose this month.
Glass is also expected to be open for use by anyone who can walk into a hotel or office building and plug in a phone.
Glass Explorer’s tour guide, Rob Bajarin, is the first person to use Glass in the real-world.
He said he and his co-worker have been using Glass to film a live stream of the San Jose SAP Center for Business.
“I’m going to try to make it into a video,” Bajarni said.
“But you never know.
I’ve never really used Glass before.”
Google is planning a Google Hangout, with Glass Explorer on the other side of the world, on the same day.
For developers like Bajar, Glass will make their jobs easier.
Glass has become a huge hit for Google, with more than 40 million people in the US now using it.
Google said Glass Explorer will include more than 10,000 Glass-themed apps.
“We’ve never seen a tour like this before,” Bijarin said.
