Google Glass Easter Egg Introduces You To The Entire Team In A Panoramic Image Controlled By Your Head’s Movement
As more developers are receiving their pair of Google Glass, the tinkering with the device is heating up. One developer found a very interesting easter egg within Glass itself, which introduces you to the entire Glass team.
The steps to reproduce it are fairly simple:
Settings -> Device info -> View licenses -> Tap the touchpad 9 times -> Tap Meet Team
Here’s a video demo, including the neat sounds that happen as you keep tapping:
The neat part about the photo is that you can see the entire 360-degree panoramic image by moving your head around. This was hard to show in the MyGlass screencast, since it lags a little bit. We’ve learned that Mike LeBeau, Senior Software Engineer for Google X, is the one who dropped the hidden gem into Glass’ software. He’s appeared on TechCrunch before in a <a target="_blank" href="“>hilarious Google blooper reel.
The team photo has Google co-founder, Sergey Brin, front and center.
I’m sure that more of these easter eggs will pop up over time, but this one is particularly cool since it’s the first time that I’ve seen a panoramic image on the device since I started using it. This functionality could be something that isn’t exposed in the Mirror API as of yet, but once it is, it’ll be a fun one.

HTC is trying to drum up interest in its Watch movie service in the best way possible: by cutting rental prices over this weekend to a measly five pence. You can watch any of 50 selected titles, including Midnight in Paris and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, for just £0.05. Once rented, a movie can be viewed within 30 days, a time limit that shortens to 48 hours after you press play for the first time. Admittedly, not every film on the list is a stunning cinematic success, but at that sort of price even the latest Transformers movie starts to look like good value.
To get in on the action, you’ll need to have an HTC device compatible with Watch, such as the Sensation, Flyer, Titan, or the newly released One series handsets.
