Was about to say "About damn time" then I realized Google leaves all their dev devices unlocked..this is nothing special then. [editline]27th April 2013[/editline] However, this is still neat. I can't wait to see what people do with Glass.

[QUOTE=swampie;40447607]Game GUI's/HUD's maybe?[/QUOTE] That's all I really want. A HUD. Even just a minimap would be awesome. :v:

[QUOTE=swampie;40447647]seems like it'd be a tad to small for a minimap, but i haven't managed to try any, so it could be for all i know :v: any idea on what the res is?[/QUOTE] Supposedly about 640×360
[QUOTE=swampie;40447647]any idea on what the res is?[/QUOTE] looks like 640×360 from what i can see, so a minimap would be plausible [editline]27th April 2013[/editline] Fuckin' ninja
Google is just one of those bro companies.
[QUOTE=Mandems;40447652]i like how he pointed out the price[/QUOTE] That's because the editions people are 'rooting' were $1500, these are by no means the consumer version.
[QUOTE=Mandems;40447652]i like how he pointed out the price[/QUOTE] yea the "Explorer" Edition is $1,500, the Beta/dev model. The consumer one will cost way less.

Nice to see a company finally embracing the modding community. While Apple just keeps trying to lock-down it's devices which only amounts to weakening it's usability, Google actually wants to see what people can do with the hardware and then expand upon that, pretty smart.

[QUOTE=AkujiTheSniper;40448479]Make it look like MGS's minimap Your friends on Google+ or your contacts show up as white dots Other people with Google Glass show up as a red dot[/QUOTE] When other glass wearers look directly at you a red "!" flashes above their heads (you'd see this through the display.)

It should come with an ammo counter too.

[QUOTE=supersnail11;40448739]hey look it's hexxeh[/QUOTE] Hexxeh was the first to "hack" into Glass. He's done some cool stuff with it.
Well if they payed that much for it it makes sense for the person to be given access to the technology. I'm envious.
[QUOTE=Agoat;40448749]Hexxeh was the first to "hack" into Glass. He's done some cool stuff with it.[/QUOTE] He better make a facepunch hack. I want to give people ratings in real life.

They just released the kernel source code, apparently [url]https://code.google.com/p/google-glass-kernel-source/[/url]
I want to see a facial recognition system that compares with known mugshots. Oh, and poor man's night-vision with simple image manipulation, since I think it does real-time recording. Although I bet one of the first thing's someone will make for it is a psuedo "x-ray" image filter, for you know, research.
im sorry people who want xray filters and mgs exclamation marks but the screen is only in the corner of your view
