A week off. And I was certainly having my issues…
#withoutglass Day 1: I am still going through the motions. Tapping my temple. Nodding my head to get the time. Hearing fantom notifications.

#withoutglass Day 3: Poked myself in the eye trying to respond to a Tweet after hearing my phone chime. #googleglass

#withoutglass Day 5. Accepted that I can’t go on without a persistent HUD. Life is cold and dark. #googleglass

So it’s been a little hard to deal.
But thankfully, my box arrived about a week after dropping Google Glass Explorer 1.0 into the UPS box. So, since I didn’t have the chance before, here’s a look at what you can expect unboxing a new Google Glass 2:
There are a few things I’ve noticed so far:
- It’s sturdy. The first two Google Glass units I had seemed a be lighter. The first one I sent back had the bottom panel of the prism-holding unit in the front popping out on day 1.
- It was nice that they gave the whole package. I still have a Goggle Glass bag from my first Explorer unit, so it will be nice to have the backup.
- The headphone is handy. But I think I’ve already lost it. It’s tiny.
- Wink is an issue. I keep accidentally taking pictures. Not to mention the rise in privacy issues that could come out of this. We talk a lot about this on AwesomeCast this week with Mike Pound and Wrestling Mayhem Show’s Mad Mike.
