Simplex-IT’s own Brandon King kept a near record audience captivated at Hattie’s Café in Hudson during his recent presentation on Google’s latest revolutionary prototype product, called simply “Glass.”

Having been chosen to be a member of the exclusive Google Glass Explorers, a national group of select field testers, Brandon has had the good fortune to be using an advanced prototype of this innovative product for the last several months. So to begin, he answered the big question everyone had, “Exactly what IS Google Glass?”

Google Glass is a wearable computer with an optical head-mounted video display, in which the user can interact with the Internet via finger taps and natural language voice commands. Among its many capabilities it allows the user to get turn-by-turn directions, take pictures and videos with its built-in camera, as well as surf the web, and more. As Brandon explained, because this is a prototype product its features are continually being updated and expanded. By the time it’s finally released (no official date has yet been announced) there’s a good chance it will be significantly different, but its current configuration gave everyone plenty to talk about!

Has YOUR curiosity been piqued? If so, keep watching these blog pages as we recorded the entire event and we’ll be posting it within a couple weeks for your viewing enjoyment. I’m confident you will find it as captivating as the audience in attendance did. We’ll let you know as soon as it’s available.

Developed by Google (duh!), which has also worked on other futuristic technologies such as driverless cars, Google Glass is a wearable computer with an optical head-mounted video display, in which the user can interact with the Internet via finger taps and natural language voice commands. In short, it’s an amazingly innovative and versatile device that will be coming to a store near you in the very near future. But Simplex-IT has an advanced sample NOW and we’ll be previewing it for you at our next free Lunchinar!

Simplex-IT’s own Brandon King was one of just a handful of individuals from across the country recently accepted into the Google Glass Explorer program and in late June he went to the Google offices in New York City to pick up his advance evaluation unit. Needless to say, he’s been the Talk-of-the Town ever since. Brandon has graciously agreed to present Google Glass at this exciting event – and YOU’RE INVITED!

Hey folks, Brandon here. Recently, Bob posted about me bringing Google Glass to Simplex-IT.

Two weeks ago I was in New York picking up Google Glass after being accepted into the Glass Explorer program. Essentially, I am beta testing the product. Looking for bugs, showing it off, trying new things, and maybe doing some development.

Consistently the number 1 question I get asked is “What is that!?” So I wanted to make it a bit easier and just make a video and show you all!

Here is the first video about Glass. I’ll go over some basics at first, and maybe I can do some more in depth videos in the near future.

If you have any questions about the device, let us know. Maybe some things you would like to see or have answered. Feedback is encouraged!
