Alex Blaszczuk, a Google Glass Explorer, documented the first camping trip she was able to take since her car accident.

Perhaps one of the best things about Google Glass is how it's been helping change the lives of people who are differently able.

One of those people is law student Alex Blaszczuk who became paralyzed from the chest down after a car accident in 2011. She became bound to a wheelchair and unable to use her hands.

Recently, Alex was tapped to be a Google Glass Explorer and used the wearable device to help her on a camping trip with friends. She was able to become the navigator during their road trip and was able to document the trip throughout with photos and videos taken with Google Glass.
