Through Google Glass: A drive to the endodontist

June of this year marks my fifth year using Google Glass, which I still consider a wonderful device, unlike the great majority of people who've used them.

From time to time I don Glass to make a video, most recently 11 days ago — December 28, 2017 — when I recorded live my short car trip to visit Dr. Robert Grover, the world's best endodontist, for yet another root canal, my eighth (!) since my series began in 1998.
