Google Glasses at Eyewear Gallery!


The Eyewear Gallery in Memphis, Tennessee has been chosen as one of 1400 sites chosen worldwide to test Google Glass. Dr. Warren Johnson of The Eyewear Gallery, is a Medical Optometrist and was chosen by Google to become an official member of the Explorer Program.  The Explorer program is a program Google has named as their chosen “test site” program to test by different professionals to give them feedback both good and bad to remedy before launching for consumer consumption.  Through this program, Dr. Johnson will explore ways to use Glass, through research and development, in partnership with Google in his office.

Google Glass has many capabilities, that are activated by voice commands including video, photography, directions and navigation utilizing Google Maps, messaging, questions and answers, translations between languages, and many other functions.

Dr. Johnson has chosen the Charcoal Google Glass, which features a 640 x 360 heads up prism display Google claims is “the equivalent of a 25-inch high definition screen from eight feet away.” Glass is also equipped with a 5 megapixel camera that is capable of capturing high definition video at 720p resolution. Google Glass is strong and light, and The Eyewear Gallery version is equipped with custom earbuds and a sun shield.

The “Exploration Program” instituted at the Eyewear Gallery by Google, will include ways to pair Google Glass to Designer Frames and Sunglasses as well as looking at the possibilities of pairing glass specifically with High Definition Custom Prescription Lenses that The Eyewear Gallery already features.  It is assumed it may help in the exam room with examinations of the eyes.

The Eyewear Gallery and Dr. Warren Johnson are excited to be exploring Google Glass and the future of wearable technology.
