The first ever porno shot with Google Glass has wrapped and I don't know whether to laugh, cry or run away. Google might have put the kibosh on allowing X-rated apps onto Glass (for now), but that hasn't stopped the porn industry from doing what they do best: using new technology to enhance the, um, adult experience.


The only thing that might be sadder than a porn app for Google Glass is a porn app for Google Glass that doesn't actually have any porn. Remember how "Tits and Glass" got banned? Yeah, it's back, but this time without the titular attractions. But don't worry: that pun isn't going anywhere.


Sherpa, the popular natural language digital assistant Android app, is coming to Google Glass and other Android-based wearables the company announced today. Although there isn't a firm timeline for rollout, Sherpa founder and CEO, Xabier Uribe-Etxebarría, tells me the company is looking to launch on Android-powered wearables by the end of 2013 or early 2014.


Not too long ago, some of Google Glass's specs got out there, but we were missing two critical pieces: CPU and RAM. Now, thanks to some endeavouring hackers who've gotten their hands on a pair, we now know some of those details.


When was the last time you winked? When was the last time you winked and didn't immediately regret it? It's probably been a while, but Google is aiming making winking cool again(?), by hard-coding some ;) functionality right into Glass.


It's been a long wait, but the very first videos shot with Google Glass out in the wild are finally starting to pop up on the internet. Some of them almost live up to the crazy spectacle of the first Google demos, but most don't. At least not yet. Here are the first ones out so far.


Even though we've seen Google Glass be leaked, be announced, be presented, be demoed, be worn, be used and even be mocked, it's always represented some far off future technology that we never were sure if it would ever be real (in a I can't believe it's already here kind of way). But it's totally happening guys. And this is what it looks like.


We all know Google Glass doesn't need sorcery for you to comfortably see a digital image projected over reality. But just how does it work? This infographic by Martin Missfeldt lays out the way the magic happens in simple terms.
