Developers already can play with Google Glass

Google Glass is already available for developers, according to Jay Kothari, Project Lead in Glass.

Google Glass is already available for developers, according to Jay Kothari, Project Lead in Glass.

Glass created big expectations some years ago when the project was announced, but it was a big failure for Google when it was launched. The team had to rethink the product. After years of development, it started to become an ally in several industries.

Kothari mentioned that Glass Enterprise Edition 2 had helped people working in logistics, manufacturing, field services, and a variety of other industries. Each of these industries had something in common: they’re related to jobs done more efficiently through hands-free access to the information and tools they need to do their job.

The executive affirmed that “enterprises who have deployed Glass with experiences built by our network of solution providers have seen faster production times, improved quality, and reduced costs.”

Glass Enterprise Edition 2 was launched last May. Since then, more and more developers and businesses had been interested in building new, helpful enterprise solutions for Glass. Now, they can purchase devices directly from one of Google hardware resellers, such as CDW, Mobile Advance, or SHI.

Glass Enterprise Edition 2 is built on Android, so it’s easy for developers to work with, and for businesses to integrate the services and APIs (application programming interfaces) they already use. Google had also shared new open source applications and code samples, including sample layouts and UI components that may be helpful examples for those just getting started developing for Glass.
