Saying Goodbye to Old Glass

Written by Sarah Willis on . Posted in Sarah´s Glog

Just sentimentally packed my original Google Glass up in the transport box Google sent to us Explorers. I know I´ll soon receive the even more cool and impressive new version of Glass but still sad to say goodbye to my old one!

More Glogging to come as soon as the Glass package arrives…!

Berlin Counterpoint´s Indiegogo Campaign through Google Glass

Written by Sarah Willis on . Posted in Sarah´s Glog

The wonderful Berlin chamber ensemble Berlin Counterpoint approached me with their idea to use Google Glass to make a cool video to promote their Indiegogo Campaign to raise money for their CD recording. I loved the idea and took my Glass along to a rehearsal. You can see here in their video how it turned out…and I totally recommend supporting the Campaign, they are a great group and also really lovely people!

Amazing rescue captured through Glass!

Written by Sarah Willis on . Posted in Sarah´s Glog

Faster than a desperate hedgehog, more powerful than a pool pump, and able to leap into a pool in a speeding bound, I rescued a struggling hedgehog who had fallen into a pool and was about to capture the moment because I was checking my emails with Glass when I realized something had fallen into the pool. So “Ok Glass, record a video” and went to see what it was.

I wouldn’t normally recommend wearing Glass in a pool but my main priority was getting the poor hedgehog out!

A chilly day in Berlin but had fun filming at the Brandenburg Gate for the Sat1 tv programme Planetopia. I still love seeing people´s reactions to Glass and watching the incredulous looks on their faces when they look up at the screen for the first time!

Ginza through Glass

Back to Glass!

My Glass was out of action for a while but the wonderful Glass Support Team helped me revive it- Glass seemed to be in hibernation but working great now.

Here´s a little Glass video filmed in November on the Ginza in Tokyo, one of the most amazing cities in the world. Enjoy!

Horn Grooving through Google Glass!

Written by Sarah Willis on . Posted in Sarah´s Glog

During the live Horn Hangout on September 9th, the incredibly talented Arkady Shilkloper persuaded me to try and groove with him in my very stiff and classical way… so what better way to document it than to don my Glass and record a video? We´ll be using the Glass footage as part of our edited Hangout which will be up very soon on the video page, so watch this space!

 

 

A Day at the Proms with the NYO and Glass!

Written by Sarah Willis on . Posted in Sarah´s Glog

I spent a day with the National Youth Orchestra at what is for me the greatest music festival in the world- the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall. Thanks to the NYO and the BBC for letting me run around everywhere and film through Glass, I had a fantastic day as you can see in this video!

Lucerne through Glass

Written by Sarah Willis on . Posted in Sarah´s Glog

We had the morning off rehearsals here in Lucerne so it was out onto the lake with Glass! On the boat I discovered this mini-horn which they use for emergencies on the water here in Switzerland. Was sadly not allowed to try it out….but could “ok Glass, take a picture” it!
