Google Glass features unveiled in preview video

Fresh details about Google’s eagerly-anticipated smart glasses have been released by the company.

YouTube video uploaded by the company shows Google Glass in action – including the interface which appears in the wearer’s line of sight.

The search giant has also opened up the trial of the product to “creative individuals” and developers.

Google co-founder Sergey Brin was recently spotted on New York’s subway testing the device.

The product was first unveiled as part of a demonstration at a Google launch event last year where developers were offered early access to the device for $1,500.

The company is now inviting people in the US to use the hashtag #ifihadglass to suggest ways they would make use of the headset.

“We’re looking for bold, creative individuals who want to join us and be a part of shaping the future of Glass,” Google said.

The demo video showed how Glass can be used to take pictures and record video, as well as share content directly via email or social networks.

Voice commands such as “OK, Glass, take a picture” were used to control the device.

Other features appeared to include Skype-like video chats, and other related information such as weather reports and map directions.

All of this information appeared in a small, translucent square in the top right of the wearer’s field of vision.

The display is considerably less intrusive than previously published concept videos.

Wearable technology is seen as a major growth area for hardware makers in 2013 and beyond.


unreal..the technology they are coming up with..just one question though..would it be safe to stick that around your side effects?

  1. It doesn’t transmit microwave frequencies like a cell phone – it just uses bluetooth radio frequency at lower power than a cell phone transmission. So I wouldn’t really be too worried about wearing it myself. I like the ease of video recording capabilities – if this become popular just think of the improved chances of catching evidence of conspiracies on video. If big brother is watching – then this makes it easier for little brother to watch back.

  2. Google Glass sales halted but firm says kit is not dead

    The company insists it is still committed to launching the smart glasses as a consumer product, but will stop producing Glass in its present form.

    Instead it will focus on “future versions of Glass” with work carried out by a different division to before.

    The Explorer programme, which gave software developers the chance to buy Glass for $1,500 (£990) will close.

    The programme was launched in the United States in 2013. It was then opened up to anyone and was launched in the UK last summer.

    It had been expected that it would be followed reasonably quickly by a full consumer launch.

    From next week, the search firm will stop taking orders for the product but it says it will continue to support companies that are using Glass.

  3. I am ibn Maryam(Isa)

    Do not delete my posts or disable my account,
    Otherwise, Allah will put you in the Hell forever. Hell is a place of sorrow,
    Where there will be no magic & u will need to earn for spending time
    there!! You will always need to sit near a lot of strong fire there, because of
    so much cold & storms!

    So, Think a last time. Beware, Dajjal will be
    shown to public in few years! She will wear Google Glass.

    Let me tell the people, The way we can bring the
    dead alive!

    To bring the dead alive, U need to bring out a
    dead body from a grave(a good condition one) & put it under sunlight. Give
    it electric shocks, From the two nipples for 2mins, 59seconds(to such level
    that if given to alive, he/she becomes dead!). Beware, The part of doing urine
    should be disconnected from brain.

    When heart starts beating, Let me french kiss the
    dead by placing my lips on a currency note(placed on dead body’s lips) &
    he/she will become alive.
