Brandyn White’s adventures hacking on Google Glass began not in a fancy Silicon Valley lab, but in a St. Petersburg, Fla., car repair shop in the mid-1990s.
His dad gave him a Tandy personal computer. The classic Windows desktop tower, “which was old then,” White said with a laugh, was part of a payment his dad had received for fixing a customer’s car. Limited in what he could do with the Tandy, White soon picked up a programming book from his school library. He was 10.
