A couple of days ago we reported that Google released a ‘Sneak Peek’ of the Glass development kit for developers to start making Glassware for the headset. Since the release of the GDK, it also looks like Google also opened up the Mirror API could be used by any developer with the know-how.
Previously the Mirror API was only available for Google Glass Explorers with a maximum of 1,000 requested to the API itself. Basically this meant that if you built a Glassware using the API, you could only allow so many people to test it before that limit was reached and therefore making the Glassware useless for the rest of the day.
Now it looks like there is no longer a whitelist to get access to the Mirror API and that the limit of requests has also been raised/eliminated completely. Hopefully this means a lot of people will be developing for Glass now but at the same time, is this going to upset the Glass Explorers that paid Google $1,500 to get access to the device and development platform early? Time will only tell.
