Google Glass is a polarizing technology—a wearable computer that places both a screen and a camera near your eye, allowing unprecedented convenience but also raising ethical questions given the ease with which one can surreptitiously capture images and video. Author and gadget enthusiast Doug Winnie calls Google Glass a "heads-up display for your life." You can also use it to capture and stream a live broadcast of the world around you. In this introductory course, Doug shows off the features and functions of Google Glass while exploring the privacy concerns and social ramifications of this new device for users.

Greeting, and welcome to Introducing Google Glass. I'm Doug Winnie. This is one of two courses that will give you a great overview of what Glass is and how it works. In this course, I'll review a number of topics, and discuss what Glass is, and answer many of the questions I get about Glass. The second course Up and Running with Google Glass will give you a personal test drive of Glass as you set it up with your Google account. And I show you some of the interesting features of Glass.
In this course, I'll answer a number of questions regarding how Glass itself works, customization options available for Glass and general guidelines and some best practice questions that I get on a regular basis. If you are curious about what Glass is, this is the course for you. If you are ready to see how Glass works and how to use it, look for the up and running with Google Glass course in the library. Lets go ahead and get started with Introducing Google Glass.
