Google has set up three basecamps to help long-term Explorers, those new to the program, and those just interested in learning more about its first wearable tech.
The basecamps have been set up in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. The locations are places where Glass users can go for fittings or support, and where newcomers can go to get a demo and try Glass on for the first time.
Those interested in visiting a basecamp can head on over to the Google Basecamp page to schedule an appointment, which is necessary. Google does state that you are able to bring one guest to your visit, but they need to be over 13 years of age.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
