Google Glass App Lets You Take Photos With A Wink


Developer Mike DiGiovanni just created an app called Winky. It lets you wake Glass from standby and take a picture with the wink of an eye.

"Winking really changes things," DiGiovanni writes. "You might not think it’s hard to say "Ok, Glass Take a Picture" or even just tap a button. But it’s a context switch that takes you out of the moment, even if just for a second. Winking lets you lifelog with little to no effort. I’ve taken more pictures today than I have the past 5 days thanks to this. Sure, they are mostly silly, but my timeline has now truly become a timeline of where I’ve been."
