Once the initial set-up process was done, there wasn't much else left for the appointment besides asking questions and getting a mini-tour of the surrounding buildings at the Googleplex.
For many users, the feature that will be tried out first is the camera.
My first snapshot with Glass is above, and given that I basically gave the photo equivalent of the guillotine to the giant Android statute, it's obvious that using the camera takes some practice.
With a little help from the Glass guide, I figured out the right way to take a photo. Here was a better result.
Having a Glass team member around when first trying out Glass is helpful for a number of reasons.
One of the mistakes I kept making was assuming the digital display should replicate a viewfinder on a traditional camera, and this isn't the case.
The digital display projected by Glass is supposed to sit a bit above eye level so that I can walk normally and look up (without head movement) when I want to check out Glass features.
But the lens on Glass is supposed to replicate what the user is seeing at eye level. However, the movement didn't feel intuitive as I kept automatically looking up and down when snapping photos, making me quite dizzy during this spin through the Android sculpture garden.
