Since it was announced about a year ago, the hype around Google’s Project Glass has been growing. And chances are good that’s going to grow exponentially now that Google has released this video, showcasing what it’s like to wear Google Glass:
As the video shows, you can take photos and videos, participate in Google Hangouts, check the weather, get directions or search the Internet all with voice commands, and the results appear in the tiny screen on the upper-right side of your field of vision. All commands start with “OK Glass” and are followed with basic instructions. It won’t make use of thousands of apps like a smartphone does, but will be limited to doing a few basic things well, Mobile Syrup reports. The device will make heavy use of Google Now, the tech giant’s automatic information feed that provides updates on all the basics you’d need during your day.
If you’re interested in getting your hands on Google Glass, you now have the opportunity. Twitter and Google+ users who post or tweet using the hashtag #ifihadglass and provide an explanation of why they should have the chance buy one, could be among the first to purchase the $1500 gadget. Google will be accepting entries until February 28, and you can read more about it here.
Here are some more photos of Google Glass, if you’re still on the fence about sending in your submission:
