How It Feels Through Google Glass [VIDEO]
Google just released its second teaser video for Google Glass and words can’t begin to describe its grandiosity. Shot from the point of view of the wearer, the clip high-octane clip captures glass shooting skydiving video, translating Thai, sharing birthday memories and taking photos at perfect angles. The user interface appears in the wearer’s field of vision as a small suspended screen that shows images, messages, mapping information, video chats and translations. Intended to depict “how it feels” to wear Google Glass, you simply have to watch it to understand.
The video also demonstrates how Google Glass is activated, as the wearer simply speaks the phrase, “OK, Glass,” followed by instruction, request or command. It’s amazing how something so simple can produce such spectacular results.
As previously illustrated by Google, the Google Glass headset has no lenses. Instead is uses a small screen above and to the right of the wearer’s eye—viewable via a mirrored glass.
Not only has Google released the exciting video, but it has also announced a contest—#ifihadglass—challenging others to create their own innovative uses for Google Glass, explained in 50 words or less. Winners will get the chance to buy their own Google Glass when they become available to developers at the $1,500 price tag.
