Google Glass gets Foursquare, TripIt, OpenTable

PanARMENIAN.Net - Google announced the latest perk for Glass owners, particularly those who like to hit the town or do a lot of travelling: new Glassware comprised of Foursquare, TripIt, and OpenTable, extending the users’ ability to get around and let the world know it, SlashGear reports.

Glass users can get the new glassware from MyGlass, complementing the already-available travel-centric offerings like Maps and Field Trip. To commemorate the expansion, Google is encouraging its users to share their travels with Glass using the hashtag #travelthroughglass.

This follows the announcement earlier this evening that UC Irvine's med students will all be equipped with Google Glass, making it the first university to so thoroughly integrate the technology into its curriculum. The distribution to students will wrap up in August.
