Here's a story that isn't directly Android related, yet, but we know you guys like to keep up with the current tech advancements that Google is cooking up.

Today we’re thrilled to collaborate with the visionary and celebrated designer Diane von Furstenberg. For the past week, we’ve been using Glass to capture the DVF creative process from entirely new perspectives.
Soon you’ll get a glimpse into what it’s like to design, prepare and experience the DVF show at New York Fashion Week through Diane’s eyes and a few other views.
The short film ‘DVF through Glass’ will be released on Thursday, September 13 on the DVF Google+ page (google.com/+dvf) and Google’s YouTube channel (youtube.com/google). We will also post exclusive images from Glass to the DVF Google+ page live during the show. #DVFthroughGlass
