TORONTO, Ontario, July 12, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- London ON-based tech entrepreneur, David Ciccarelli, CEO and co-founder of Voices.com, is the very first Canadian to experience Google Glass as a Google Glass Explorer. He joins just 8000 other people around the world as a Glass Explorer, and is only 1 of eventually 3 Canadians to sport the "coolest specs" in Canada as a Google Glass Explorer.
After some hometown publicity in the London Free Press, Ciccarelli made his way to Toronto where he was interviewed on national television and broadcast radio, sharing the new technology and discussing how he sees Google Glass making its mark on the world.
In February 2013, Google ran a contest on Twitter inviting the public to share, in 140 characters or less, what they would do with Google Glass if they were selected to buy what has been called by some, "a smart phone on your head."
A tweet made by David Ciccarelli on February 21, 2013 sealed the deal as he promised, "As an audio engineer, I will do something incredibly entrepreneurial with sound or the human voice."
After appearances on CTV's Canada AM ( http://canadaam.ctvnews.ca/video?playlistId=1.1357725 ), Ontario Morning and Metro Mornings on CBC Radio 1, as well as coverage on CBC news, Ciccarelli has been able to share Google Glass with millions of people across the nation ( http://www.voiceovertimes.com/2013/07/08/voices-com-ceo-first-google-glass-explorer-in-canada/ ).
