1993 Predecessor to Google Glass is Goopy, Reptilian


I chanced upon this biomorphic beauty one day on collections.cooperhewitt.org. Naturally, being part of the nerd department here at the Museum, I immediately showed it around. After a collective wave of "wooooah, dude," we generally agreed that it was very awesome that our collection indeed contains the alien-space-slug-older-sister to the slick young whippersnapper in the wearable computing family—Google Glass.

DesignPrep: A City of Neighborhoods


City of Neighborhoods is an innovative experience about the design process, learning from professionals to understand how design can affect and improve your community. This 11-session workshop offers youth participants the opportunity to incorporate the latest technologies which includes iPads, Macbooks, and FlipVideos. Youth participants use these tools to capture and display their work via the NYCLN a social network that enables the exchange of civic minded ideas and discussion.

DesignPrep: Makerbot Workshops


Cooper-Hewitt is launching a series of FREE workshops for NYC teens on building, programming, and prototyping with the Makerbot 3D printer. Participants will learn how to assemble, program, and print their designs on the Makerbot 3-D printer. They'll learn about hardware, software, and 3D modeling software like Google Sketchup and Blender. This is a huge opportunity for kids to geek out on the cutting edge of technology and bond with the Makerbot developers--the hippest, funnest nerds in the country.
