Google Glass and I: Changing Performance for the Better

Google has an amazing idea. Why not take the technology that so often distracts us and detracts from our experiences and put it closer to our actual senses? Oddly enough, this change in proximity has a way of making experiences more human and less distracted.

So where do I come in? I've been invited to be a Google Glass Explorer! I can purchase Google Glass early because I had a use case idea Google liked. Check it out for yourself!

If you know me, you know I'm a performer. I'm a born musician, and I love poetry. I see the combination of Google Glass and performance as an unstoppable artistic vehicle. I'm also an engineer, and in my attempt to smash those two disciplines together, I want to use Google Glass! Help me make art with technology!

The Details

What I need? $1500 for the device. If I receive any more funds, they will go to my trip to LA to pick it up. Any remaining funds will go towards future engineering/art projects I develop.

Other Ways You Can Help

Know somone who works for an airline? I need a plane ticket!

Want to help me experiment with Google Glass? Have artistic or technical abilities? I'm looking for project partners!
