Catme 13/Glass Effect 92: Using physically damaged but functionally capable Google Glass
On Friday, September 27, Google Glass fell off my face and dropped three feet onto a wooden table top at Alderman Library at UVA.
When I put it back on, I immediately noticed that though it still worked fine, the camera boom was loose in the horizontal plane.
I decided not to call Glass Support for a replacement but rather to continue using it since its functionality seemed unimpaired.
However, closer inspection on Monday, September 30 revealed that there is some loss of capability in one particular area: when I look down, gravity pulls the camera boom away from the frame and so I don't see the entire virtual screen in my heads-up display.
I thought that meant YOU would see the same truncated view but discovered after putting Glass through its paces, focusing on this function, that in fact you the viewer still see a full screen — though I don't — while recording video.
This became apparent only after I watched the video on my computer screen.
Good to know.
I'm sticking with my broken Glass for the indefinite future: it's fun to explore the limits of the device.
Hey, that's why Google called us beta testers Explorers, right?

Very cool, I am amazed at how stable the image is when you move around.
