Google to Hold Project Glass Event in Two Weeks

Google has announced plans to hold a developer event for its Project Glass product in a fortnight's time. You might remember last year's Google I/O, when Google offered attendees the chance to snap up a finished unit for $1,500 once they became available. Well, those same people are now being invited to hack Project Glass.

Google is actually holding two events, one in New York City and one in San Francisco, and sent out invites to the two this week.

"Join us for an early look at Glass and two full days of hacking on the upcoming Google Mirror API in San Francisco or New York," Slashgear cites the invite as saying. "These hackathons are just for developers in the Explorer program and we're calling them the Glass Foundry. It's the first opportunity for a group of developers to get together and develop for Glass."

The SF event will take place at the end of this month, on January 28 and 29, while the February event in NYC is scheduled for February 1 and 2. Day one will consist of an introduction to Google Glass as well as a look at the Mirror API, which SlashGear says will be followed by development. Day two will see demos and special guests. Attendees will also get a unit to use during the two-day course.

Space is limited, so if you've been invited, be sure to register quickly!
