Likelihood of scoring more swag not guaranteed.
I am kind of feeling this new Google Glass, a new experimental head mounted tech that’s sparked a lot of intrigue. On paper, it speaaks to my inner geek, even if they look a lot stranger than sporting a pair of Amber-tinted glasses.
Now developers are working to unlocke some of the peripheral’s hidden capabilities; one which allow a user to take photos with a mere wink of the eye. Well, actually you’d have to work the eye muscles in a bit of a scrunchy-like method, but it’s still cool. The Winky App, which is now available through the service, GitHub, allows you to power up the Google Glass from startup and take snapshots.
Mike Digiovanni, developer lead for Roundarch Isobar says that the Glass “really changes things”. He’s been working on different methods where the end-user to use the app to detect double blinks, double winks, and so forth.
They could still benefit from a bit more tweaking in the design department. To date, they still look a little silly, have terrible battery life, and the only individuals who seem totally cool with the Glass in its current form reside in Silicon Valley. Well, perhaps they’ll keep tweaking it to the point that just about anyone wouldn’t feel to strange about sporting them.
Or they could just start from scratch and run with something like this. . .
