Get it Online: Google Glass demonstration Friday, April 4

March 20, 2014 | By Joan Coyle |

NPC member Thomas Sanchez, a Google Explorer, will give a show-and-tell with his new pair of Google Glass and discuss how the new wearable computer has the power to shape the future.

To the naked eye, Google Glass appears to be an ordinary pair of eyeglasses or sunglasses, but it has computing power and functions similar to a smartphone. With the lenses acting as tiny computer displays, users can check email and calendars, search the web, listen to music and even make video calls.

The "Get It Online" lunch series is open to National Press Club members free of charge. Lunch may be purchased in the Reliable Source. A limited number of guests may attend at a cost of $50 per ticket, which includes lunch. Introductions will begin at 12:15 p.m. and the speaker will conclude by 1:30 p.m.
