GlassKap: Accessorize (and Engage with Privacy Questions) Around Your Google Glass #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Check out designer Todd Blatt‘s GlassKap: A Fun Way To Accessorize Your Google Glass.

What began as an experiment in public courtesy — an accessory to indicate that you are not currently recording with your Glass — has expanded into whole slew of fun and quirky design accessories for the Glass, including the macro attachment test shared below.

From Engadget:

Todd Blatt wants to have more fun with Google Glass than just the occasional game of Battleship, and he has been crowdfunding 3D-printed GlassKap add-ons to spice things up. His newest additions to the line have us especially intrigued, though: he just unveiled a set of crosshairs (pictured above) and a macro lens (after the break). Both function as you’d expect, letting Glass wearers either live out their future soldier fantasies or snap up-close photos that they’d normally miss. The September launches for both accessories are contingent on Blatt reaching his $1,500 funding goal, although that should happen soon when it takes a $30 pledge to set aside a GlassKap. The real challenge is obtaining Glass in the first place.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!

  1. The glasskap is a great idea. For all the people that have google glass should definitely look into buying these they look like great product plus they look fun. Who doesn’t like fun. I would love to promote this on my website.
