Google sends invites to Project Glass developer events

Head-mounted display to have Google-hosted two-day hackathons

Google is holding a pair of developer events to kickstart app development for Project Glass. E-mails have been sent to developers that bought the $1,500 developer edition of the head-mounted display, inviting them to the Google Glass Foundry events, where they will be given the chance to use the device, as well as to work on how to use the system's underlying software.

The e-mail, according to All Things D, states that developers will begin the two-day events with an introduction to Glass, followed by guidance on how to use the device's Mirror API. Development time will then follow, aided by Google engineers on-site, and at the end of the second day a panel of judges will critique the newly-built applications.

The two Glass Foundry events will be held at Google's San Francisco and New York offices, on January 28th to 29th and February 1st to 2nd respectively. It is not clear how many developer spots will be available, as it is warned there will be "limited space." Registrations will open from January 18th.
