Google Glass versus Microsoft HoloLens

Here’s one thing Google and Microsoft agree on (and they’re right)

http://www.businessinsider.com/google-and-microsoft-embrace-ar-over-vr-2016-4

Virtual reality, like the new Facebook Oculus and HTC Vive, completely immerse you inside a computer generated world. It’s like being inside a 360-degree video game, or movie, or computer-generated simulation.

according to a report in The Information today, Google’s long-term bet is on augmented reality. The company is making not one but several follow-ups to Glass, and has a project called “Tango” that aims to outfit smartphones with computerized “eyes” that can map a 3D space.

Google Glass evolving

Google just shut down all the social media accounts for Glass

The social media team behind Glass made one final posting on Google+ — pointing to a place where problems can be reported — and shut down the Twitter account.

The Google Glass name is being phased out and replaced by Glass: Enterprise Edition. Google has recently been letting more partners try Glass, according to the report, as it aims to drum up interest in its product.

Google Glass issues

Help – my glass can’t start – Explorers Community

I just received the glass yesterday.  After fully charge the glass and turn it on, it displays the “Glass” logo then keeps on “main stopped unexpectedly” -> “voice stopped unexpectedly” -> “camera stopped unexpectedly”.  What’s wrong with it? The seller told me it is a common problem. (boot looop?)  After a hard-reset, it still does not function.

Talked to 1-800-Glass-XE. The issue is because the OS (XE16.11) is not updated. In order to to push the updates, GG needs to be reconnected to Wi-Fi. Easiest way is if GG “remembers” previous settings. In this case, any phone or tablet that GG has been connected before will do. Battery must be  charged at least 50% (at least an hour).
GG can take the updated also directly from Wifi, but the SCSU WiFi does NOT take devices like Google Glass yet.
If updates cannot be pushed to Google Glass, then the “owner” of the device has to talk to Google for replacement.

Please consider our previous postings about Google Glass:

http://blog.stcloudstate.edu/ims/?s=google+glass

What you don’t want it to end up being is what a lot of experts call, you know, the ‘thousand-dollar pencil,’” said Eric Carbaugh, a faculty member with the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development. “Maybe we give kids tablets or Google Glass, or whatever it might be. There’s this tech tool that you integrate into the classroom, and what you end up seeing is that those tech tools are essentially used to take notes.”

I start testing GG several days ago and I am still in the stage of Jeff Jarvis : http://www.businessinsider.com/jeff-jarvis-on-google-glass-2014-2

The questions is: how to make GG applicable for our daily tasks at work?

GG can be very useful for training students: by having a live, streaming G Hangout session with the supervisor. The latter can be in his/her office multitasking, while also monitoring the work of the student. E.g., shelving books for the Circulation supervisor.

my observations:
– GG is a glorified mobile devices, which, instead of being handheld is head-worn. the logic of navigating is the same, although still more cumbersome with GG.

– it certainly can have a niche as is, but it will take time (price, usability) until it becomes ubiquitous.

even faculty video service integrated with LMS (SCSU = Kaltura + D2L), faculty still are encouraged to use youTube.

migrations lose metadata. Google migration highly automated, but other modernisations, but sites older then 10 years were scrapped.

aside of Google Glass, are there other Google apps used in the medical school. Answers: Google calendar

wearables by Microsoft Facebook and Google

The competition narrows down between Microsoft HoloLens, Facebook Oculus and Google Glass. Each of them bets on different possibilities, which wearable bring.

VR and ER tech developments

A New World: VR and AR Tech Developments

Authors: by Emory Craig and Maya Georgieva Monday, July 17, 2017

device available on campus

We’re now seeing a move toward mid-range, standalone VR headsets with everything built into the device. Some include their own processors, while others, like the forthcoming Microsoft headset, will work with current desktops. Microsoft’s device claims to do both VR and a modified version of mixed reality

The low end of the VR spectrum has been dominated by Google Cardboard, with over 10 million distributed

headsets

Augmented Reality

AR burst into the public’s consciousness with the Pokemon Go craze in 2016. And Snap (formerly Snapchat) expanded the range of their social media platform with the release of Spectacles, their wearable glasses and World Lens filters that add digital objects to your environment. A second version of Spectacles may include far more extensive AR capabilities.

At Facebook’s spring F8 conference, Mark Zuckerberg made the case that our mobile cameras will be the first popular AR platform. Apple just announced ARKit for iOS at their June WWDC developers conference.

Mixed Reality

Meta Glasses has been developing its own mixed reality unit that offers a wider field of view than the 40° of HoloLens. And Intel’s Project Alloy promises a “Merged Reality” headset prototype combining both VR and AR by the end of this year.

Kickstarter Projects

Aryzon which is creating a Google Cardboard-like device for simple AR experiences. Another is the NOLO Project, which offers an HTC Vive-like experience with full freedom of movement using only a plastic headset and your phone.
