Experimenting with home automation using Google Glass and Arduino

There's no doubt that the new Google Glass may be a sign of the future of wearable interactive computing, however we haven't seen much work with Glass and hardware integration - until now. Although a first, basic example of Arduino-Glass interfacing, Sameer Ansari has demonstrated how to interrogate an Ethernet-enabled Arduino with a temperature sensor to report the data to the Glass wearer, and also control digital I/O which then of course can be used to control anything, in Sameer's case a house light.

To learn more about how this is possible, you can examine the code and notes provided by Sameer on his github page. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

When putting together your next Internet-enabled Arduino project - save time, space and money with the Freetronics EtherTen. Apart from being fully Arduino Uno-compatible, it has onboard Ethernet, microSD socket, full USB interface (so you don't need a costly FTDI cable just to upload a sketch!) and supports optional Power-over-Ethernet.
