OK Glass

Those who have Google Glass or have been watching how it works, know that "OK Glass" is how you pretty much do anything on it. It is the "hot word" to trigger Glass to do something. You basically say, "OK Glass" and then tell it what to do.

Amanda Rosenberg, the Glass Product Marketing Manager, shared on Google+ that it was her idea to use the phrase "OK Glass." In fact, that is how she got the job to work as the Product Marketing Manager on the Glass team. You can read that whole story on Google+.

The funny part is where she shared the alternatives considered by Google for the hot word to trigger Glass to do things.

My favorite was "Go Go Glass," so retro. Other alternatives included:

  • Listen up Glass
  • Hear me now
  • Let me use Glass to
  • Go Go Glass
  • Clap on
  • Device, please
  • 3, 2, 1...
  • Glassicus
  • Glass alive
  • Pew pew pew

Pew pew pew? Really?

So why was OK Glass chosen? Well, here is the email Amanda sent for her pitch which may explain it all:
