Good news for developers who have been dying to test and get their hands on Google Glass.
Google announced plans Tuesday to hold a “Glass Foundry” in San Francisco and New York in the coming weeks: Two full days of hacking that will allow developers to get an early look at Glass and start developing for the platform.
It will be a Two day event with the first day being the introduction to Google Glass and then the second day will be the day to explore Mirror API, which will “give you the ability to exchange data and interact with the user over REST.” Google engineers will be on site to help developers at any point in the process.
The Google Glass was last demonstrated by Google co-founder Sergey Brin in Google's Annual developer conference "Google IO" The glasses offer the ability to record video, get weather updates, and see messages from your friends.
Developers who were in attendance at the conference were able to order Explorer Editions of the glasses for $1,500. Those glasses are expected to ship to developers early this year, however, an exact ship date has yet to be announced.
Glass Foundry will be held in San Francisco from Jan. 28 to 29 and in New York from Feb. 1 to 2. Both events require registration and are available only to a limited number of developers.
Here comes the best part the developers will get to use unit on-site.
