[New Device] Google Glass #957
Checked over everything again, let me know if there are any more things to fix
@ollieparanoid It's extremely tricky to get a good photo where you can see the screen, so my solution is to take the following photos / screenshots:
Also, it would probably be cool to mention that coinciding with getting pmOS running on Glass is making open source libraries for interacting with the Glass sensors, and in the future, maybe input methods consisting of a head-movement and blinking for Weston and other environments via libinput.
Sorry for the stupid question, but why is it difficult to make a photo with that running on the google glass device? Since it runs already, I thought you would put down the glass on the table, then take out any (phone or not) camera, and make a photo of the whole thing. Even if you can barely see the display, together with the screnshot it would be good enough to present in my opinion.
@ollieparanoid Nah it's a great question :)
I've taken some more
I will get one ASAP, sorry for the delay, been a busy week…

@ollieparanoid In the case of default Google Glass software (which mind you, I presume doesn't apply here), Glass actually shuts off the screen when you set it on a table! But yeah, I can definitely confirm, near impossible to take a picture of the screen, it looks like a small square of light when on.
What Google does for "screenshots" is they take a screen capture and then put it as a layer with some opacity in the top right corner of a normal picture of whatever the person is looking at.
