There was a lot of questions surrounding Google’s myserious “hackathon” event for an exclusive group of developers looking to hit the ground running with developing on Google Glass. Dubbed the Glass Foundry, the event took place a few weeks ago in San Francisco and New York and because of a super scary NDA Google issued to devs, we had little knowledge of what was going on during the brief 2-day event.
Today, Google Developers took to their Google+ page, to divulge a little more info on the results from the hackathon, announcing that developers managed to come up with 80 new ways to use Glass (you know, aside from taking really X-TREME photos). Devs who took part in the event saw their glass plaque’s level-up from “Explorers” to “Pioneers,” and 8 teams of devs were even able to take home Google Glass Explorer Edition, with Google picking up the $1,500 tab.
Google mentions there could be more Glass Foundries in the future, but for developers looking to learn more about developing on Glass will have a chance on March 11th, during SXSW in Austin Texas. Hit the link for more details and photos from the event.
