Abstract/Artist Statement

We all have a lot to keep track of: passwords, keys, email addresses, phone numbers, due dates, mobile devices, friends, family and more. Google Glass can support a solution to locating a mobile device, which in turn may help you locate a particular individual (assuming that they carry the mobile device near to them). The Android Software Development Kit (Android SDK) gives access to many different sensors, the key one here being the GPS sensors which can provide a latitude and longitude for a particular device. Google Glass operates on the Android SDK, but provides a much more simpler interface allowing the user quicker access to specified information. Leveraging the Android SDK and Google Glass I have developed the GlassFinder app which allows a user to insert a device ID with which they can get the general direction of the device (via a dynamic visual indicator on the Glass’ display) and an approximated distance (via text on the display).
