We have known for awhile that companies and developers have already been getting their hands on Glass and the Mirror API. Today at SXSW, Google has shown us how their Cloud API works, the guidelines on how developers will write applications for Glass, and several companies that have already been allowed to create their apps already.
Google has held two Foundry events for Glass Explorers to try out the Cloud API and hack away on Glass. It also looks like Google has opened their doors for several companies to come in and develop their apps for Glass. These applications include Evernote, Skitch, Path, The New York Times, and Google’s Gmail. In the presentation, Google talked about how they want apps for Glass to be quick, to-the-point, and out of the way of the user.
Below are pictures of sample code and the way it is laid out for each “card” for Glass.
Some video has already made it to YouTube that someone from the crowd took of the demonstration.
