Ever wondered what the world would look like through Google Glass? Well, this weekend you can find out for free.
Google is bringing Glass, its new wearable computer, to The Cyclorama at the Boston Center for the Arts on July 26 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The public is invited to try the hands-free computer encased in a titanium eyeglass frame, which is not yet widely available to consumers.
From on-the-go maps to voice searches, video calls, photo sharing and more, Glass allows users to interact with their technology without interrupting the flow of their everyday lives, according to Google.
The technology has only been made available to those known as Glass Explorers, thousands of people who were invited to get Glass and use it out in the world. The group includes tech developers and everyday folks including more than 2,000 from the Boston area who are a part of the program.
"Aside from these early Glass Explorers, most people haven’t even seen Google Glass in person but we hope to change that with this tour," a press release from Google stated, adding that Boston was the sixth stop along the Glass tour.
Google is encouraging event-goers to take a selfie wearing Glass and share it on Twitter or Instagram, using the hashtag #bostonthroughglass.
