The Google Glass concept has been around for quite some time but lately the search engine giant has made tremendous progress into making it a reality. In case you’re not familiar with Glass, long story short, this particular gadget takes the form of a pair of glasses that features a camera and something that we’d call a heads-up display, allowing the wearer to take pictures, record videos, share them on a social network and more. It’s basically one of the nerdiest gadgets I’ve seen in a while and since I’m a bit of a nerd myself, I’m absolutely loving it.
But getting back to the matter at hand, Google has recently published a new video, showing enthusiasts what it would feel like to use the Glass.
Alright folks, as mentioned above, Google has recently shared a new video that gives us a general idea of how it would feel to use this particular gadget. The entire video has been shot in first-person POV and what we’ve learned is that the Glass features voice recognition software, and that in order to make it do stuff, all you need to do is start a command by saying “ok, Glass”, followed by other instructions such as “take a picture”.
But Google Glass is more than just a glorified camera and it’s also able to show navigation, messages, search results, it allows the user to start hangouts, it can show weather information and more.
In case you’re excited about this particular gadget then you’ll also be happy to find out that the company has started a competition that will end sometime soon, giving enthusiasts the chance to be able and get their hands on the Google Glass ahead of its release, for the price of $1,500. Before you ask, this will most likely not be the price of the gadget once it officially goes on sale, but if you wish to be ahead of everyone, as always, you have to pay a bit more.
