Google Glass Apps / Re: App idea with potential life saving properties
« on: January 15, 2014, 09:09:35 AM »
Hi Nike,

This is a good idea, and I like where you're head/creativity is at, but I don't think it is feasible, at least not with the current glass hardware. Relying on a single camera makes it impossibly to determine speed. Imagine, for example, looking up at an airplane. To us on the ground, it appears to be moving very slowly, but in reality it is moving at a few hundred miles per hour. The way things like the Kinect work to sense speed is by using 3 separate cameras spread out, then triangulating the speed and motion based on the triangulation.

I would also imagine you'd get a ton of false positives, just because a car is moving at 30 mph now doesn't mean in 5 seconds it won't be stopped. Since you can't predict drivers intentions, it would be hard to make it not alert you for every potential dangerous situation, even when 99% of them are not actually dangerous to begin with.

So, while it is a good idea, I'm just not sure its feasible, at least not with the current Glass hardware.

Right now I've mainly been focusing on the three that are on my website (http://nickginsberg.com/glass.php), bartender, calculator and barrel roll, but I'm always looking for new ideas and inspiration!

Google Glass Apps / Some Apps I've Been Working On
« on: January 13, 2014, 11:24:35 AM »
Hello all,

I've been working a bit on a few Glass apps that I thought you all might be interested in. I was a bit bothered by the lack of a Glass calculator coming stock, so I built one. I also made a bartending app that will give you drink recipes, I'm working on adding more as we speak. The link to get the apks is http://nickginsberg.com/glass.php. I really don't mean to spam these forums and I'm sorry if I violated something by posting here, but I thought people could find these cool/useful and if you have any feedback I'd be happy to listen!
