By pushing contextual, geographic-aware, and time sensitive data directly into your line of vision - JewGlass can help you remember things such as prayer time deadlines, where to find kosher eateries, what or what not to say while praying in synagogue and Shabbat start or end times. This is just the beginning, the practical applications are endless.
How do you get it? Well, first you need to get Google Glass (currently in beta and thus hard to get now) and then you need to click "Connect To Glass" at the top right section of this page and authorize the app. We are calling this project, Jewish Guide For Glass (formerly JewGlass).
