Anyone who’s been paying attention to the game development scene can tell you that Unity has evolved very quickly, and has matured into an amazing development environment; and 4.5, the latest release, is no exception. Unity 4.5 focuses a lot on bug fixes (over 450 of them), but there are also some great new features as well.

Living in San Francisco, you see people wearing Google Glass often: at coffee shops, at restaurants, on trains. The Glass Explorer program, a group of people invited by Google to purchase Glass before its official release, has been expanding over time. As a result, thousands of Explorers are now using Google Glass and informing Google on how to improve it.
