Silicon Valley VC launches first Google Glass Maker Fest in India

Ahmedabad, Dec. 31 : Silicon Valley venture capitalist Asha Jadeja has reportedly launched a technology and design event in India that has been wildly popular in California.

The Maker Fest is a non-commercial, free and open to all event, in which Google's wearable computing device Glass would be introduced to programmers as a private initiative for the first time in India.

Jadeja would be launching an app development competition and hackathon for programmers to create solutions using Google's open source operating system, Glassware and allow Indian entrepreneurs to launch apps on the OS before the hi-tech device is rolled out to the public.

Makers from all over India and some from the US would be showcasing their inventions at the National Institute of Design in Ahmedabad on January 4 and 5.
