When Lanyards Attack. Share your story and / or laugh at others

My lanyard snoozing at the United Club, Los Angeles CA  

At ISTE 2014 I got the idea to make a lanyard for myself that I could also hand out to friends, attendees, etc. 

The whole process has turned out to be more rewarding than I could ever have imagined. Many teachers (close to 400) have requested lanyards without even being at an event and another 1000 lanyards or so have been handed out at events. There is even now a super... Read More

Google Glass: Golf Lesson

Posted on Tuesday, December 10, 2013 Comments by Leslie Fisher in

My swing has been a mess so off I went to a golf lesson. 

I decided to stick Google Glass on my coach. While many teachers including mine uses video in their teaching, I usually do not have the option to take them home nor do I get to see my swing from their exact location or perspective. 

We were able to record 46 minutes of video before it ran out of battery. I have included some clips from my lesson which I am finding most productive as I review them.

Google Glass on the Course

Posted on Wednesday, November 27, 2013 Comments by Leslie Fisher in Glass, Camera / Video, Golf

I have been wanting to record a hole of golf with Glass and finally got my chance today at Los Serranos Golf Course North 18. I was golfing alone and a lot of groups were letting me play through and I did not want to play through while recording them. 

However, no one was on 18 when I got to the tee. My battery was low however. I was not able to record everything, but, I did make the two putt for par. 

Golfing with glass is pretty interesting.

Google Glass: Word Lens

Posted on Sunday, November 24, 2013 Comments by Leslie Fisher in Glass, Apps

I will be adding some screen shots and step by steps of this a little later down the road, but, here is a quick demo of Word Lens on Google Glass. The app was just released a few days ago. 

I think this will be a fantastic feature for Google Glass. Not as much Word Lens as much Augmented Reality in general. 

While this is a great feature, I keep thinking about battery life. The need to constantly be showing the camera than processing translation is (at least I am guessing) going to... Read More

Google Glass: Directions

Posted on Tuesday, November 12, 2013 Comments by Leslie Fisher in Glass, Interface

I think its important to note that Google Glass on its own does not have an Internet connection, meaning it cannot handle directions on its own. It depends on a tethered iOS or Android device or WiFi for its Internet. For GPS, it needs to be tethered to an Android device that has GPS capabilities activated. 

I have a terrible sense of direction. I spent one night in Iowa lost because I missed the turn. That was back in the days that printing directions in MapQuest was high end technology. 

So, when I... Read More

Google Glass: Quick Introduction

Posted on Monday, November 11, 2013 Comments by Leslie Fisher in Glass, Screencasting

While on the road and trying to fall asleep in a hotel bed, I theorized that I could create a setup that would allow me to show you My Google Glass screen while I interacted with it. Sure enough, it worked! So, here is a really quick demonstration of Google Glass and an outline of the setup I am using. 

You will see some lag in the video. The problem is not glass, it is not Bluetooth. Its simply the lag of the recording. Glass is pretty zippy in its responsiveness.

All I know about my 15 minutes of obscure TV fame

Ok! You guys rock with your support and your questions, so, I thought I would make a blog post answers the questions I have been hit with so far. 1. What the Heck?
