You'll learn how to handle the provided credentials, and from there you'll dive into the parts that make up the Glass interface, managing the timeline and creating cards and menu items. Next you'll create services where the user can interact with your server, such as geolocation tracking, change notifications, and custom menu options. You'll use this information to create a sophisticated application that suggests local restaurants. You'll see how to attach or detach assets, images, and video, and learn the basics of the emerging field of optical-display design. You'll see how to properly design new Glassware and update existing applications to become Glassware.Now is the best time to be an early adopter of a technology that will only become more advanced, nuanced, and ubiquitous....

    This time my intention to read a book was simple, I was trying to decide if it’s worth developing for Google glass because of the limitations it imposes.There’s a certain lack of books for the Glass explorers. The fact that this book exists is a delightful exception. The book exactly does what it promises. An ability to develop web apps for Google glass. Though there is a lot of manuals from Google to achieve such a goal, but I feel confident after reading a book that’s not affiliated with a certain vendor. Vendor’s books tend to lie, that’s the main point after years of tackling distinct API’s.Apart from that the the book is great, it teaches you how to make it with Google glass in a succinct way. It can be easily read in a couple of days. My only issue with it was a lack of material covering the native development process for the goggles. If all you need is mirror api than this book is sufficient, but if you feel pain because of the mirror api handicaps I recommend you to find another book which covers GDK.My score is 3/5
