Riptide was part of the Explorer Beta program and if I had published this feedback before, it would have been for other Explorers, really. Now that Google has released, my honest feedback from my personal Beta thoughts are below. Let me say first to caveat my frank criticism, I think Google Glass is an incredibly cool technology and device. I am grateful for the work that got it to the place where we all can get involved. Also, I am certain that I understand the third wall, I can suspend my disbelief, and I can be on the other side of my own temporal provincialism. Anthropologically, I can understand the context of me as part of an older generation in 2014. Here at Riptide, one of our developers was asked to participate—as many are. I was the fourth of my colleagues to reset the factory settings, put them on, and make them “my glass.”
