Google's 'Giving Through Glass' Contest Winners Envision the Smart Glasses' Diverse Uses

Google recently announced the five winners of its "Giving through Glass" contest in which nonprofit organizations offered their visions of how they would use the company's proprietary smart glasses. The five winners— 3,000 Miles to a Cure, Classroom Champions, The Hearing and Speech Agency, Mark Morris Dance Group and Women's Audio Mission—were selected from more than 1,300 proposals, and each will take home a pair of Glass, a $25,000 grant, a trip to Google for training, and access to Glass developers who can help make their projects a reality.



Sunglasses Use Active Shuttering to Combat Motion Sickness

Motion sickness sufferers typically rely on medication delivered through pills, patches or wristbands to help them alleviate their symptoms. But a new type of eyeglass developed by XPand, a leading manufacturer of 3D glasses, offers a high tech alternative.

XPand's Anti Motion Sickness Glasses (X105-MS-1) are electronic sunglasses that can reduce motion sickness while traveling by airplane, boat or driving. Beyond blocking UV radiation, the sunglasses have electro-optical system that fights motion sickness in noninvasive way.

New Research May Lead to Thin, Flexible High-res Displays for Smart Glasses, Synthetic Retinas

A new discovery will make it possible to create pixels just a few hundred nanometers across that could pave the way for extremely high-resolution and low-energy thin, flexible displays for applications such as 'smart' glasses, synthetic retinas, and foldable screens.
