Back in June of last year Google made their Project Glass available for developers to pre-order, the device would cost developers around $1500 and now it would appear that the developers will finally get to try the devices out.
Google has announced a hackathon for developers which will take place in San Francisco and New York, and developers will get a chance to try out these new Google devices.
Join us for an early look at Glass and two full days of hacking on the upcoming Google Mirror API in San Francisco or New York. These hackathons are just for developers in the Explorer program and we’re calling them the Glass Foundry. It’s the first opportunity for a group of developers to get together and develop for Glass.
We’ll begin the first day with an introduction to Glass. You’ll have a device to use while on-site. Next we’ll take a look at the Mirror API, which gives you the ability to exchange data and interact with the user over REST. We’ll then dive into development with Google engineers on site to help you at any point. At the end of the second day we’ll have a lively round of demos with some special guest judges.
The Project Glass Hackathons will take place on January the 28th and 29th in San Francisco and on the 1st and 2nd of February in New York.
