Google Launches Invite System For Early Glass Explorers And Preps Updated Hardware

frankenglass

Hey Google Glass Explorers, Google thinks you’re keen. Really, they do.

So much so in fact that the company has been quietly working on an updated version of the Glass hardware, and those of you who shelled out $ 1,500 to be among the first to support the project will be able to swap your existing units for the second revision for free.

Of course, Google Glass is still a ways off from its general launch date – expect it to land some time in 2014 on some sort of Google barge – so naturally Google is gearing up to expand its pool of guinea pigs Explorers. To that end, existing Explorers will have 14 days to choose three acquaintances who are worthy of paying $ 1,500 for Google Glass.

But let’s back up for a moment. What exactly makes this new iteration so special? So far it seems like a pretty incremental upgrade – unless you’re like me and wear honest-to-goodness specs everyday. Google’s Glass team has confirmed on (where else?) its Google+ page that this version will be able to be fitted with “future lines” of prescription lenses. It’s also going to pack a mono earbud, presumably because the existing bone conducting speaker system isn’t exactly the loudest thing you’ll ever hear.

With any luck, Google will have tweaked the internals a bit too, as the existing loadout is getting pretty long in the tooth. In case you’ve forgotten, it sports a TI OMAP4430 chipset and 1GB of RAM, which essentially means that in an age of incredibly high-powered components in smartphones, current Glass owners are walking around with the equivalent of a Galaxy Nexus on their heads.

And in case you were curious, here’s a copy of the email Google is sending out to eligible Explorers, just so you know what to look out for:

Being part of the Glass Explorer program is pretty insane (good insane): let’s face it, using cutting edge technology that changes every month requires a certain sense of adventure. We’re looking for more Explorers like you to be part of the program, so we’ve opened up a few more spots and this time, you decide who gets in. We want you to invite three people to join the Explorer Program, people who you believe would make great Glass Explorers.

You have 14 days to invite 3 of the best potential Explorers you know to buy Glass.
Just a reminder that all Glass Explorers must:

  • be a US resident
  • be 18 years or older
  • purchase Glass
  • provide a U.S. based shipping address OR pick up the device in New York, San Francisco or Los Angeles

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: thank you for all your feedback and support. It’s because of you that Glass has come this far, and we’re truly grateful.

Xiaomi Phone 2 preps Hong Kong and Taiwan launch, seeks early local testers on Facebook

Xiaomi preps Hong Kong and Taiwan launch, recruiting early users on Facebook

We knew Xiaomi’s keen to bring its phones into the European market, but prior to taking that long-haul flight, the Chinese company is visiting make a couple of stops in Asia. According to the latest updates on the company’s Twitter feed and a freshly-made Facebook team (under “Xiaomi Asia”), the Xiaomi Phone 2 will be striking Hong Kong and Taiwan “in the near future,” and people staying in those two regions could get in a draw for a chance to become a guinea porker assistance check the phone’s localized MIUI ROM (in typical Chinese, normally) ahead of launch. CEO Bouquet Jun had actually formerly specified that his business would broaden into Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore by the end of this year, however due to the frustrating demand of Qualcomm’s 28nm chipsets throughout the year, it’s extremely unlikely that Xiaomi can understand its original plan in time. Regardless, from what we understand, Xiaomi could partner with Chunghwa Telecom to offer the Xiaomi Phone 2 in Taiwan, whereas in Hong Kong it might use the customary online direct sale design to begin with– unlike Meizu who has a physical store in the city, along with a partnership with local carrier PCCW. Now, how about a full schedule for your world domination, Mr. Bouquet?

Vizio preps for Windows 8: all-in-one PCs get touchscreens, notebooks get ‘enhanced’ touchpads

Vizio preps for Windows 8 allinone PCs get touchscreens, notebooks get 'enhanced' touchpads

As is all the rage immediately, Vizio is upgrading its line-up to support Windows 8’s even more touch-centric UI. The company’s 24-inch and 27-inch all-in-one Computers will certainly receive touch panels, resulting in a cost bump to $ 998 for the base 24-incher with Ivy Bridge and Kepler internals, 1920 x 1080 display and 500GB hard disk. On the other hand, Vizio’s Ultrabooks– both the 14-inch and 15.6-inch designs– and its heftier 15.6-inch Full HD note pad will certainly all get “enhanced multi-gesture touchpads” that will certainly permit precisely the very same swipes, taps and pinches as a touchscreen. These laptop computers will certainly begin at $ 849 for the smaller Ultrabook and $ 1,129 for the notebook. Expect the entire ton to arrive as part of the late October crush.

NTT DoCoMo preps automatic translation from Japanese through Android devices

Japan’s special language makes calls to other countries a challenge: citizens typically don’t have much choice however to brush up on another person’s language or hope there’s a Japanese speaker on the other end of the line. If all complements NTT DoCoMo’s organized Hanashite Hon ‘yaku automatic translation service, international telephone calls will be as comfy as telephoning a shop in Nagano. As long as a subscriber has at least an Android 2.2 phone or tablet on the provider’s moperaU or sp-mode strategies, the service will automatically convert talked Japanese to yet another language, and turn around the procedure for the reply, whether it’s with an outgoing call or an in-person discussion. The service will bridge societies beginning from November 1st, when it will certainly translate from Japanese to Chinese, English or Korean. Indonesian, Thai and five European languages are coming later that month. If you’re not that customer, NTT DoCoMo will certainly provide a holdover on October 11th with Utsushite Hon ‘yaku, a free Word Lens-like augmented reality translator for Android 2.3 that can switch text to or from Japanese with a glimpse with a phone camera.
