Introduction to Google Glass Martin Missfeldt “Google Glass Infographic” February 2013 http://www.brillen-sehhilfen.de/en/googleglass/ CC-BY
What is Google Glass? Google Glass is a wearable mobile device that brings the experience of one’s smartphone or tablet to into dialogue with the human body’s personal audiovisual environment. Google Glass is “a heads-up display for real life” as stated by Marques Brownlee in his video, Top 5 Wearable Tech! (Early 2014).
How does Google Glass work? Google Glass is tethered to one’s smartphone or tablet through the MyGlass application for Android or iOS. Google Glass receives and sends notifications back to one’s smartphone or tablet in combination with data via Bluetooth and WiFi. Google Glass is operated with a combination of voice commands and touch controls.
#ifihadglass The initial release of Google Glass was offered to those who submitted entries for the #ifihadglass competition via Twitter and Google Plus. Those accepted by Google had the opportunity to be among the first to purchase and test Google Glass out in the world. I applied to the #ifihadglass contest via Twitter in February 2013. I received Google Glass with support of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in July 2013.
Who are Google Glass Explorers? Google Glass Explorers are the beta testers for Google Glass. Google Glass Explorers develop new applications and experiment with use cases for the device in community with others. Google Glass Explorers have diverse interests, professions and skills.

Should Museums Engage Google Glass? Google Glass could have a transformative impact on museums as smartphones and tablets did previously. As a wearable technology, Google Glass makes possible immersive interactions with museums onsite and online. People may come to better understand the present and imagine our future when Google Glass is engaged with museum collections and programs.
Google Glass as a Mobile Device in Museums Google Glass should primarily be treated in the BYOD or Bring Your Own Device category of wearable devices in museums. Museums ought make their content openly available for use by popular third party mobile applications paired with Google Glass. It may be appropriate for museums to lend Google Glass or develop custom applications to meet needs of specific audiences and program objectives.
