"There was an app for that": I've been informed by a Google Glass user that The vOICe for Android no longer runs as a side-loaded app on Glass. It reportedly just shows a black screen, without any sound. I cannot think of a reason other than recent changes to the Glass firmware. If anyone has an idea that could lead to a fix I would much appreciate it! http://www.seeingwithsound.com/android.htm http://www.seeingwithsound.com/android.htm

"....This is narrative medicine as well: “…listening and watching a story to honor and understand “the story” of that person, with his life and his body changed by the disease, who’s trying to find different ways to move and to make his desires come true”. - See more at: http://glassalmanac.com/quadriplegic-patient-walks-exoskeleton-google-glass/4375/?utm_source=feedblitz&utm_medium=FeedBlitzEmail&utm_content=908551&utm_campaign=0#sthash.4wbjs3Vu.dpuf http://glassalmanac.com/quadriplegic-patient-walks-exoskeleton-google-glass/4375/?utm_source=feedblitz&utm_medium=FeedBlitzEmail&utm_content=908551&utm_campaign=0#sthash.4wbjs3Vu.dpuf

A selfie made by a blind user of The vOICe for Android in India. Not Google Glass, but an improvised much more affordable setup using the Chinese 49€ Mini Android Phone attached to a headband, plus an add-on wide-angle lens for a wider field of view, http://www.seeingwithsound.com/share/PranavLalHeadBandMobilePhoneSetup.JPG The setup reportedly ran The vOICe about 3 hours on a single charge, which is not bad at all, and of course an external battery could be added. http://www.seeingwithsound.com/share/PranavLalHeadBandMobilePhoneSetup.JPG

I wonder if, someday in the future, they could develop a digital implant that could switch off or isolate the electrical currents for the part of the brain where seizures originate? Some people with epilepsy get early warning signs that a seizure is coming. Maybe when that happens, they could use their phone or smartwatch to signal the implant that it's time to switch off that small bit of their brain before the seizure happens. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/09/health/probing-brains-depth-trying-to-aid-memory.html?_r=1

A positive sign, given the applicants that were selected.

A positive sign, given the applicants that were selected. Looking forward to hearing how things progress with these projects. Let's hope that this leads to more openness and awareness of the needs of people with disabilities, especially with the Google Glass team.  #glassfamily   #googleglass   Originally shared by Google Glass A couple months ago we invited nonprofits to tell us how they’d use Glass to boost their impact. We’ve been blown away by how many incredible ideas came our way, but a few stood out. Here are the five organizations that will receive Glass, a $25,000 grant and a trip to Google to kick their concept into high gear. Classroom Champions Paralympic athletes and mentors teach students to see ability where others too often see only disability. They’ll be using Glass to show students at high-need schools what it’s like to train and compete.  3000 Miles to a Cure Brain cancer is one of the deadliest cancers in the world.

This is a message for Andy, but I'll post it as an open comment for discussion. I am working to complete development of my Glass-based EyeSpeech system at the end of September to enable eye-gaze texting capability. I would like to put in place a pilot/test program at two or more medical centers by mid-October, and thought it would be a good idea to reach out to you now. Would you be supportive of using Glass with the EyeSpeech interface and an eye-tracking cam mounted 4 cm from the eye among  patients at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Centerwho may benefit from this capability? We would provide one or more Glass devices with the EyeSpeech/cam system enabled. All we ask is your availability to document the use of the system and report back to us your observations and experience so that we may improve the technology. My goal is to use this pilot program as a means to broker a deal between Google and Arrington Research (which manufactures the eye-tracking cam) to make this
