Google has invited those who signed up to buy Project Glass developer devices to events where they will be able to try out Google Glass for themselves. However, the company didn’t provide a lot of advance notice to those who might like to attend. The first “Glass Foundry” will occur January 28-29 in San Francisco, and the second will take place February 1-2 in New York.
The invite promises, “We’ll begin the first day with an introduction to Glass. You’ll have a device to use while on-site. Next we’ll take a look at the Mirror API, which gives you the ability to exchange data and interact with the user over REST. We’ll then dive into development with Google engineers on site to help you at any point. At the end of the second day we’ll have a lively round of demos with some special guest judges.”
Juniper Research predicts that the market for wearable computing devices like Glass will top $1.5 billion by 2014.
