Expect To See Even More of Glass, Developer Invites Go Out from Google
This month we have seen a big push by Google to get developer support to grow apps for their first wearable tech, Google Glass.
First was the early release of the GDK (Glass Developer Kit) which lets developers leverage their Android code to build native apps for Glass.
Then came the opening up of the Mirror API, the original programming method for Glass, which previously was limited to only those who own Glass.
Today, Engadget reported that Developers are beginning to receive invites to have the chance to purchase Glass. To clarify, these are invites direct from Google and not those extended from existing Explorers. In October, existing Explorers were given 3 invites and the chance to swap out Glass to the new hardware.
Engadget has reached out to Google to get a sense of scale of these developer invites but we can expect a good number, especially if Glass is to have a significant catalog of apps for when it gets released to the masses in 2014.
