Mass Innovation Nights 64 #MIN64

massinno logo 20140709_193456_921

I always enjoy events where smart people come to meet other smart people and make an effort to say “Hi I’m …”.

Mass Innovation Nights 64, held at the WaterTown Arsenal offices of Athena Health was such an event.  Of course I also love when people ask “is that Google Glass?”.  Bobbie Carlton and her team at Mass Inno have been doing this for well, 64 nights and they have the formula down.

You can read about the startups that presented and all the great sponsors over at the Mass Innovation Nights site, I just want to post some of my #ThroughGlass photos and let all my readers know that this is a monthly event to put on your calendar.  Go sign up for the newsletter.

Glass Goes Snowboarding

I spent this past Saturday exploring Okemo Mountain Resort with my son Dan, assistant manager of the terrain parks. The video above is an edited version of Dan’s ride through the half pipe wearing Glass. We took many photos and videos which will be posted soon. The purpose of the visit, chronicle a day in the life of the parks crew.

Fun took over so I will need a return trip to truly show how convenient Glass is for documenting a job and demonstrating a process. For now, here are a few of the pics.

Google announces prescription frames

Google has just announced their line of frames, minus lenses, that fit onto the wearable computer Google Glass. These follow along with partner companies announcing the coming availability of complete prescription solutions.

In their official Google Plus announcement the Glass team said

If we had a nickel for every time someone has asked about prescription lenses for Glass… well, we’d have a lot of nickels. So we want you to be the first to know that the Titanium Collection is here, with a handful of new styles for Glass so you can make it your own. Whether you wear prescription glasses or just want a new look, we’ve got four feather-light titanium frames designed just for you. And if you need prescription lenses and have vision insurance (such as VSP), your policy might even help cover your new frames. Explorers can access the Titanium Collection tomorrow afternoon, along with two new styles of twist-on shades.

Rochester Optical had previously announced their solution which is yet to ship but will include a selection of frame styles and lenses which mount on the existing Glass.

Filling Glass – Google Glass Hackathon

Join us in Manchester, NH for a Saturday of hacking applications for Google Glass.

Basically, this will be an all day hack in the very cool offices of DYN, in the Manchester Millyard.  We’ll start with a completely optional meet, greet and planning session on Friday night, then spend all day Saturday from 9am until 6pm working on whatever cool Glassware is dreamed up.

There will be teams and there will be prizes of some sort (lots of recognition for sure).

We will also shuttle Boston area students up from Wellington and back.

Everyone must register HERE and that includes free press, students and glass explorers.

Wish I had this in high school

From Wired
The new Lego Architecture Studio set doesn’t come with instructions for any one building.

Architecture Studio, a new set from Lego, comes with 1,210 white and translucent bricks. More notable is what it lacks: namely, instructions for any single thing you’re supposed to build with it. Instead, the kit is accompanied by a thick, 277-page guidebook filled with architectural concepts and building techniques alongside real world insights from prominent architecture studios from around the globe. In other words, this box o’ bricks is a little different. Where past Lego products might have had the happy ancillary effect of nurturing youngsters’ interest in architecture, here, that’s the entire point.Lego Arch Studio
