Ethan on his first day of high school using Google Glass – Stuck in Customs

Ethan on his first day of high school using Google Glass

Don’t forget about the huge Arcanum Critique hangout today!

See the Event Info and Times Here!

This will be a great event with me, Lisa Bettany, Rick Sammon, and Dave Cross.

As we march toward opening the doors to The Arcanum, you’re invited to participate in this special event just for our community!

Through participating in this event our community will get a taste of The Arcanum Experience: Learning through constructive critiques, which is just one of the many things that happen inside the hallowed magical doors!

The Arcanum Photo Critique and Make-Over event is a Google+ Hangout On Air, open to the public, scheduled for Monday February 10th at 7pm.

To Participate:
You must submit a single candidate photo by Sunday, February 9th to be considered for the random selection. You can submit any photo to The Arcanum Google+ page.

If you already applied to The Arcanum – we truly hope you’ll submit a photo to be critiqued. If not, no worries at all! Either way, you can watch the live event! 🙂

And if you’re wondering when the doors will officially open for The Arcanum, the answer is as soon as magically possible! We’re doing a test run right now with all the Masters to work out any kinks. Also, we are a bit (!!) overloaded with Apprentice applications, so it will take a while to ramp up. It may be a good opportunity for you to pop over and update your application at !

Daily Photo – Ethan on his first day of high school using Google Glass

Ethan just started at Wakatipu High School here in Queenstown and he wore Glass on the first day. There was a special event that afternoon where the parents came along too, so I decided to snap a few photos! See the full album here on G+.

100% of the kids and teachers found the Glass to be fascinating. No one asked him to take it off, but of course he was not taking any tests on the first day! I had him also record a lot of videos and take photos so we could look in and see what it all looked like from his perspective. My wife Tina also has Glass, so next time we’re going to do a live Hangout so she can see exactly what he’s seeing… this “shared vision” thing is pretty cool, especially for moms who really like to see what their kids are doing! 🙂

BTW, if you’re wondering, all the photos in the album were taken with the Sony A7r and the Leica f/1.4 50mm.?
