Google’s been asked all sorts of questions since it first showed off Google Glass in 2012, and the company recently put together a helpful list of Do’s and Don’ts to make sure Explorers get the most out of their new device. Here are some of the best tips. Engage the world around you! With a computer in front of your eyes, you don’t have to look down to get information. Have a Google+ Hangout, get walking directions to a new restaurant or check on your delayed flight – all without having to look down at your phone and miss what’s going on around you. Also, remember that Glass can respond to voice commands, which frees up your hands when you’re cooking, golfing… or doing just about anything else. Say, “Ok Glass, take a picture,” and you’ve got a hands-free shot of whatever you’re looking at. Finally, use screen lock. It’s just like your smartphone’s screen lock – it won’t let anyone use your device without first knowing your passcode.
