Our test pair of Google Glass arrived today. Tried to download the MyGlass for iOS and thought it was strange that it didn’t appear in the App Store on our iPad 2. It did list iPad 2 compatibility. Called Google Glass support, after a brief hold, spoke to an awesome tech support rep and determined that unfortunately you need a 3G capable device to run Google Glass. It cannot connect to the Internet on it’s own so functionality such as GPS and live streaming from the Glass will not work. My work iPhone will not work either even though it is cellular, you need to create a hot spot with your device. I’m on AT&T and cannot do that with my iPhone. You also need iOS 7 and I’m still on 6 because I’m a waiter.

I’ll be blogging on here as we go with pictures and information. Before you say anything, I know this is Carolina blue, but unfortunately, that’s as close as I could get.
