Last fall World Wildlife Fund (WWF) was chosen to participate in Google’s Giving Through Glass program, designed to explore how nonprofit organizations can use Google Glass to further their mission.

As a Glass “Explorer”, WWF has taken Glass to places like the Arctic and the Amazon, and most recently to Nepal to test out a new Glass-specific app (“Glassware”) that could help researchers gather critical data on rhinos and share among fellow researchers – all hands-free.
