Two University of Missouri students, Kate Hrdina and Rachel Zamzow, were part of the first group of users to try the new Google Glass, to cover the World Food Prize. Hrdina, a senior in science and agricultural journalism’s food and wine writing track from Columbia, Mo., and Zamzow, a doctoral student in neuroscience from Austin, Texas, used the Glass to cover the World Food Prize Oct. 17 in Des Moines, Iowa. Zamzow wore Glass, and Hrdina led her on a brief tour of the conference.

It has 16 gigabytes of storage, a 5-megapixel camera, voice command and a touchpad for control.
