With Thad Starner. I was very happy to meet a great researcher and friend, Thad Starner. It was very exciting to try a demo of the Google Glass. I talked to Thad about his very interesting work at Google. He told me he will return to academia at Georgia tech because he still feels it is the best place for an exploring mind. He gave me very good feedback about my research on digital taste and smell actuation. It was most inspiring to hear Thad speak.
