BREAKING NEWS: I’ve Got Google Glass!

Google Glass is really opening doors and creating opportunities! I have already had the adventure of a lifetime, as we crashed into LaGuardia airport on the flight to New York. I was on my way to visit the Google Chelsea Market location to pick up my Google Glass, when all of that excitement happened. And now, the same day that I picked up my Glass, the reporter who broke the story on the plane crash and my onboard video tracked us down to do a feature on Google Glass! Here I am, a Louisiana native, doing a feature story on this exciting new technology right out on the corner of Broadway and 5th in New York! Wow! I demonstrated all of the features of Glass. I took pictures, recorded video, did Google searches, etc. right there on a busy NY street. I used my Galaxy S3 to screencast everything and the demo went great. I let the reporter try them on and he was blown away when he spoke, “Okay Glass. Record a video”, and it started recording. He was amazed at the capabilities of Glass and assured me that he would definitely buy Glass once it’s released to the consumer. He told me that he would email me when it airs, and I will surely pass along the links to the readers of Glog Life. My first demo and it will be televised in New York! I am truly blown away by Google Glass and what this whole experience has brought into my life.

My Google Glass Experience

I arrived with great anticipation at Chelsea Street Market on Wednesday afternoon. It was 1:00PM and the time had finally arrived. I was about to experience the cutting edge in new technology! Google Glass. What is Google Glass, you ask? In brief, it’s “wearable technology” that embodies Google’s philosophy that technology and information should be readily available in an instant, but it shouldn’t be obstructive or intrusive. It is a “mini-computer” worn on a frame similar to eyeglass frames. It has a prism HUD (heads-up-display) that gives information with a simple upward glance. Time, Weather, Google Search, Maps and navigation, Full Web Page Browsing, etc. all available through this amazing device. Now, I am getting a pair and assuming the role of “Glass Explorer”. Glass Explorers are early “beta testers” who get to use this device before it is released to consumers.  We put it through the paces, discover bugs and limitations, and find uniques uses and applications, all in an effort to make this amazing technology the best it can be.

The “Google Glass Experience” as it has been aptly named was great! The guide who helped me fit for my Glass let me try on each color to see which I liked best. I chose the shale. Then he helped me sign on and configure my device, which is tied into your Google account. He showed me how to use voice commands to take pictures, record videos, get directions in Google maps, do Google searches and many other fantastic tasks done right through the device on my face! Wow! The experience and Google Glass are even more exciting than I had imagined! My wife and son accompanied me on the appointment and they were treated wonderfully. My wife enjoyed complimentary champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, and even got to try on Google Glass for herself. All in all, it was a magnificent experience that I will never forget!’s time to put Google Glass to the test. It’s time to start living THE GLOG LIFE!

Since I will not receive my Google Glass until July 24th, I will post several videos and reviews in order to introduce Google Glass to the blog readers. 

The Glog Life Begins

              What is "The Glog Life"?

The purpose of this blog, The Glog Life,  is to chronicle my journey as I use the revolutionary new technology from Google called Google Glass. I will attempt to use the device as a "content creation" tool by utilizing Glass' ability to create photos, videos and text. I am scheduled to pick up my Google Glass on July 24th and on that date, the journey begins. Please join me and follow along as I try to test the limits of this amazing new technologies and hopefully, learn many new things along the way. 

And what is a "glog"? Simply put, "glogging" is a term I've come up with for Google Glass blogging, or using Google Glass to create blog content.
