Designing for Google Glass: November’s NoVA UX Meetup


For the November NoVA UX meetup at AddThis HQ, coding architect and Lucid Technics partner David Hodge demonstrated what it’s like to use and design for Google Glass. David shared general design principles behind the Google Glass interface, such as:

  • A user’s “timeline,” similar to a Facebook feed but much simpler
  • The initial starting menu of things you can do with Glass
  • Subscribing to apps
  • Location management
  • Contacts integration

He also shared useful design strategies such as keeping user interface “friction” low by minimizing the amount of text and using dark backgrounds for timeline “cards.”

David wrapped up his talk with a mini-workshop in which attendees sketched out Glass interfaces that he quickly prototyped, followed by Q&A. A fascinating evening!
