Samsung has been known to be working on a Google Glass competitor of its own in its research labs. And a new patent filing might have inadvertently given away some of the details of this new device known as “Samsung Glass”. The patent images also reveal that the manufacturer is working on a feature which involves augmented reality, allowing users to see a physical keyboard almost anywhere, including their palm.

Google doesn’t want you to be a “Glasshole.”
That’s according to a new list of “do’s” and “don’ts” the company has published with advice for Google Glass wearers.
“Do’s” include exploring the world around you, taking advantage of Glass voice commands, asking for permission when you video people or take their photo, and using screen lock.
“Don’ts” include “glass-outs” — in which you appear to zone out while doing in-depth work on your headset, playing high-impact sports wearing your Google Glass, expecting people around you to ignore the fact that you’re wearing a computer on your face, and being generally creepy or rude.
With Google Glass still available only to a limited number of Glass Explorers who are willing to stump up $1,500, its app catalog is still looking a little bare. Fortunately, there are third-party developers out there who are trying to make up for the lack of support from official apps.
David Vávra is one of them, and he just released Google Glass’s first Foursquare client called Glasquare.
If you’re anything like this writer, one of the main impediments making you think twice about purchasing a Google Glass headset is the fact that you already wear prescription glasses.
To solve this problem, Google has now unveiled its long-awaited (and rumored) Google Glass units for prescription glasses wearers: the so-called Google Glass Titanium Collection, which replaces the headband currently used for Google Glass with more traditional frames (including the option of some nifty sunglasses).
There are bound to be teething problems as Google Glass rolls out to users. Back in October last year, Cult of Android reported on the Glass user given a ticket for “driving with monitor visible to driver.”
Now we have the not dissimilar case of a theater-goer removed from a screening for alleged piracy.
The viewer in question was watching Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit with his wife at an AMC movie theater in Columbus, Ohio, when he was roughly removed from the screening by Department of Homeland Security officials.
LAS VEGAS, CES 2014 – Hyundai will reveal an app for its 2015 Hyundai Genesis vehicle that will allow drivers to wirelessly operate certain features using Google Glass and other wearable devices.
The remote features (currently still under development) work via Hyundai’s cloud-based Blue Link platform.
Is it your wish to try out Google Glass, and have you missed every opportunity to do so thus far? Well, if so, and you are a Play Music All Access subscriber, it looks like today may be your lucky day. To celebrate the successful launch of Google Music for the new version of Glass, the team at Mountain View is sending out invites to users who have already subscribed to the monthly service on either their Android- or iOS- powered smartphones, giving them the opportunity to “sign up” to the Explorer database, which, in turn, will give them the facility to purchase their very own Google Glass unit.
A new book called Dogfight: How Apple and Google Went to War and Started a Revolution by Fred Vogelstein revealed the mechanism by which Apple influenced the direction of Android — shock and awe.
Yes, the introduction of the iPhone changed the direction of smartphones. But I don’t think it’s going to happen again in the wearables market. Here’s why.
Helped along by a sci-fi-style concept video, a new Google Glass competitor called the Atheer One shot halfway to its $100,000 crowd-funding goal in just a day.
“In a few years, the digital world with all its rich information will be completely merged with the real one,” says Atheer Labs in its Indiegogo campaign for the Atheer One, which has already raised more than $54,000. “Let’s get the future started today!”
What does that future look like, according to Atheer? Take a look at the video below and see for yourself.
Who says Google Glass is only good for making you look like a certified dork? Four animators recently got creative with the head-mounted gadget, using Google’s wearable tech to capture imagery for a clever stop-motion video called Catch.
“We shot this entirely on Google Glass over 4 days, with over 1,000 photos and drawings,” write the filmmakers on their YouTube page for Catch. “Made by a group of animator and filmmaker friends here in New York, jamming on the weekends.”
