5 Nonprofits Get Google Glasses

"Five nonprofit groups got word Wednesday that Google will help them fulfill visions of using the technology titan's Internet-linked Glass eyewear to do good," reports "'Giving through Glass program winners were selected from 1,300 proposals from US charities with ideas of how to use the eyewear to achieve their goals. Google will give each group a $25,000 grant along with a pair of yet-to-be publicly released Glass eyewear and guidance from the technology firm's engineers. ...Winning proposals included using Glass to let students see through the eyes of Paralympic athletes to foster empathy for people with disabilities; encourage girls to learn math and science, and improve communication by people with autism, hearing loss, or speech problems. Glass will also be used on a '3,000 Miles to a Cure Race Across America' to raise money and awareness for brain cancer research." Read more.
