Google Glasses

Six months after their spectacular unveil, Google is about to send the first round of augmented reality Google Glass devices to developers. Developers will pay $1,500 for the privilege of receiving an early, prototype version of Google Glass, but the polished consumer version — due in 2014 — should be a lot cheaper.
As it stands, Google Glass is a browband — like a pair of spectacles, but without the lenses — with what basically amounts to small ARM computer running Android attached to the right side, by your temple, and a large battery behind your right ear. There’s all the usual hardware that you would find in an Android smartphone — a speaker (near your ear), a forward facing camera, gyroscope, accelerometer, compass, a couple of microphones, and WiFi and Bluetooth aerials — but instead of a large touchscreen, there’s a tiny display placed near your right eye.

A message to you...

Unsuspecting shoppers in an east London corner store were serenaded with a version of A Message To You Rudy, played out by a series of unlikely instruments including the Bottle Trumpet, Food Can Xylophone, Tetra Pak Maracas, and the Nut Packet Shakers.

Red Stripe turned an east London corner shop into an orchestra of unusual musical instruments for one day only, serenading shoppers with a new version of Dandy Livingstone's A Message To You Rudy each time they reached for a can or bottle of Red Stripe. Various products around the shop were borrowed and modified so they could play a tune, and even humble items like the dustpan and brush weren't missed out.

The video was directed by Greg Brunkalla, from Stinkdigital London, who worked with creative technologists Hirsch & Mann on the project.

As the making of video below demonstrates, there was no fakery involved. Each 'instrument' was individually wired up and placed on the shelves in order to blend in with the rest of the items in the shop, and all the sounds heard are created by instruments made from typical corner shop products.
