theglasslab.com is a project that was started by glasseye in September 2000 chronicling his life and yo-yo adventures through the years. Though the website hit some long stretches without new posts, glasseye remains intent on keeping it updated, especially with content pertaining to the Southern California yo-yo scene.
glasseye began yo-yoing back in 1998. From his love of the community he created theglasslab.com which grew from humble beginnings to one of the biggest and longest standing yo-yo dedicated sites ever. He is also of the leader and co-founder of the world famous DXL Crew, has been a member of the U.S. Duncan Crew since it’s inception in 2000, and is the organizer of the DXL Battle Championships.

Sam Lopez joined theglasslab.com in July 2009 to bring his video series “Elements” to the lab in which he breaks down specific trick elements and explains how to use them. Sam is always studying new concepts and theories but still has a deep respect for the old school and is constantly revisiting old tricks in new ways. He is also an excellent teacher and one of the main gurus at the Southern California yo-yo classes. Sam is sponsored by General-Yo and a member of the DXL Crew.
