GGDEVCON: Sense for Glass

Glass presents an unique opportunity to examine the environment around the wearer in real time. Environmental Sensors are rapidly evolving in size power, and portability to the point where they are essentially wearable and always on. There are several sensors already on the market that can provide real-time streaming of temperature, humidity, atmospheric gas, spectra, etc. This class will provide and in-depth review of best practices and design patterns for integrating sensors with Glass. Also presented is a live demonstration of several sensor technologies as part of this session. All source code presented during this class will be available at: https://github.com/gitizenme/Sense.

From Zero to Mobile at the Reno Collective

Overview

I recently held a training session at the Reno Collective as part of their Learn series. The session titled “Getting Started with App Development” is part of the From Zero to Mobile” series, is primarily centered around getting started with mobile app development from the ground up.  I covered topics ranging from development platforms, cloud services, marketing, UX/design, making money, etc.  Below you will find the slide deck from the class and a (brief!) list of online resources.

Here are a couple Glass vignettes for a functional first cut at the integration. A huge shoutout to TheMastorBaron for the Glass-IntentTunnel project.

The key aspects to the project are :

  • Glass-IntentTunnel – awesome library to tunnel Android Intents over Bluetooth
  • Hacked version of Sensordrone Control – Bluetooth connectivity, data collection and IntentTunnel integration
  • GlassSensor Glassware – Live Card Glassware app that communicates with Android app via Glass-IntentTunnel

Announcing Sensordrone for Glass

A Glass app that utilizes the Glass Development Kit and the Sensodrone API to display sensor output in real time on the Glass display. I’m building this with Android Studio and will be posting some notes on configuration and performance soon.
