The fun begins when you get Glass to do what you want, and we show you how in this chapter, starting with the basic gestures you need to make Glass go.
You also see how to navigate the timeline, which contains notifications about various activities. Your Glass notifies you about new activities as they occur, such as when you receive a new e-mail message.
The Home screen, shown in Figure 4-1, is the first thing you see when you activate your Glass. To wake up Glass, tap the touchpad or lift your head up as though you’re looking at the moon. Your Glass display turns on, and you see a screen displaying the current time and the text "ok glass".
