Google Glass owners see the world through augmented reality, but what if they could also see another person's reality? This is somewhat Emotient's Google Glass app aims to do as it tries to guess what another person is feeling.
While anyone can apply to be a part of the Google Glass Explorer program, it seems a few newer entries are also part of another group -- the NYPD. Details coming from a recent report brings mention of how the department has begun testing a "few pairs" of Glass. The NYPD has yet to make any formal announcement, however the source reports how they are being used "mostly for patrol purposes."
Google has recently released five mini-games for Glass. The games include Tennis, Balance, Clay Shooter, Matcher, and Shape Splitter. These will be available using the "Ok Glass, Play a Game" command, but perhaps key here, Google has said they released these games in an effort to inspire developers.

The latest Google Glass update arrived just a few days earlier. That one was the XE12 update and while we had been seeing an update each and every month, Google will be skipping January. It seems they are considering the XE12 update and the release of the iOS app as two updates and as a result, the next monthly update will come in February.
Google has released the latest update for Glass. This time around the update has landed as XE12, which includes a bit about the iOS companion app. We saw the MyGlass app arrive in the iOS App Store earlier in the day, and it seems this XE12 update is officially paving the way. But as we saw the app arrive, only to be quickly pulled, we now know that Google is planning to release that app sometime "later this week."
