Developing for Google Glass

Maximiliano Firtman talks about what developers need to know in order to start creating apps for Google glass. Right now, most apps fit the mold of cloud-based web apps that can be written in pretty much any language with the Mirror API. A forthcoming Java-based SDK will allow people to develop native Android apps, which will open up a world of as-yet-unknown virtual reality opportunities. The groundbreaking nature of this new device also means developers have to start to grapple with an entirely new user experience, not simply apps with a clear background, but a whole new way of navigating the world.
