Earlier this year, we were told across several exclusive reports that new Google Glass hardware was on the way, namely a device Google has been working on for more than a year aimed at the workplace. Now, several months later (and with many interesting reports about Google’s mysterious Project Aura having surfaced since), we have our first look at the device…
Google Glass Battery
GAZERg for Google Glass: UnBoxing
Here is the video from one of our supporters. We appreciate the feedback and welcome everyone to provide any suggestions and comments on our battery pack.
To show appreciation for all of our customers, we offer discounted price for GAZERg battery pack – now only $99.00! You can order it here.
GazerG balance tip
Greetings to all our explorers!
Some of you may find battery a bit heavy, changing the Glass balance too much. There is a solution for those who find themselves in such a situation, but still would like to keep GazerG – by simply adding so-called “shades” you will re-gain the right balance.
GazerG is ready to ship out!
We would like to thank everyone who supported us throughout this project. To be honest, it was not easy to make it happen. We hope that the product you receive is going to be just what you expected. If for some reason you don’t like it, we will accept your return within the first 2 weeks. We will start shipping out GAZERGs on Sept-18 and will continue to do so on the following week, until all orders have been fulfilled. Please send us your feedback, we would like to hear back from our supporters!

Final Production Update
We were asked many times if we are still working on the project, due to the lack of updates. So here is the latest one!
Currently we are running final production of PCB boards and Plastic cases for the GazerG battery. We estimate it to be finished in the first week of June. Then we will program the boards, and assemble everything together. We estimate that to be done at the end of June, that’s when the product is ready to ship.
Thanks to everyone who has been waiting for so long!
P.S.: We will contact everyone who placed pre-order to verify current mailing address, just to make sure the product will reach its owner.
The contact form on our site didn’t work for the last 2 months. Now we fixed it. Sorry for any inconvenience. If you used our contact form and didn’t get an answer, please, contact us again.
Also, if you want to reply to our emails, make sure that the actual email address is info@GAZERG.com (not info@gazerGLASS.com).
Thank you for understanding, folks.
In a few words – we had to redo everything, switching from analog to digital.
0) Samples from China were WRONG with some of the components installed backwards(!!!) on the board
1) Everything is VERY small so we had to find engineers with good eyes and a lot of patience (changed 3 different engineers, who couldn’t accomplish the job)
2) We assembled a sample with large atmega microcontroller and it didn’t work properly
3) We found mistakes in code and problematic parts on the sample (for example, we used analog trigger with high frequency status reading, which gave us problems with button, so eventually we switched to digital)
4) We recompiled the code for attiny-45
5) Now making another sample from scratch by hand and trying to make gerber file with the least amount of layers possible (to make it easier for factory to make). Will try to manage it from 4 to 2 layers.
6) Crossing fingers to have everything ready asap to order 5 – 10 samples made in Moscow
7) If samples perform well we will hop on the plane to China immediately.
PCB board problem
Currently we are fixing our PCB board. Due to the mistakes during production it came out in a non-working condition.
We sincerely apologize. We are almost done, and you will see your GAZERg this summer, along with another free gadget for Glass that will will ship out later as a compliment for those who have waited for so long.
Thank you again, we are trying our best.
GAZERglass re-branding. Now GazerG!
Dear Glass Explorers,
We have a great news for you! We finally came to an agreement with Google regarding the legal issues (mentioned in the previous update). And from the next week we will continue the production process. Long story short, we decided not to confront Google and agreed to make the required changes. We changed GAZERglass battery product name (now it’s called GazerG), its trademark (new application is pending), packaging design and changed our website name from gazerglass.com to gazerg.com (the old domain will redirect you to the new one).
Here is a first real sample of our GazerG battery and its packaging from the manufacturer. That is very close to the final product, which will be delivered to our early birds!
Dear Glass Explorers,
We recently got a letter from Google’s lawyer, saying that using a word GLASS will infringe their trademark… even though trademark GLASS has been refused by United States Patent and Trademark Office, Google still doesn’t want anyone to be associated with this word, even if you make up something like a GAZERglass… Continue Reading →
