I'm happy to announce the launch of our open source Google Glass Lifestream & Backup Tool for Mac OS X. In order for it to work, you must first turn on debug on your Glass: Settings > Device info > Turn on debug (see notes below as to why we do this).

After backing up your Glass to the chosen directory, it can optionally generate a lifestream from the images taken with your Glass. Here's my latest lifestream:

You can download the backup tool here:

Download the Google Glass Backup Tool

Simply download and run the LambdaBackup.app file.

The source is available on Github: https://github.com/lambdal/LambdaBackup. The dirty secret is that the entire app is just a shell script wrapped into a .app file! It's the future of Cocoa development.

Enjoy!
