Amazing Google Glass Functional Preview Released!
Company’s YouTube video uploaded 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.
This isn’t the open UI of Android; Google is wisely keeping Glass a closed ecosystem, limited to a few core functions. Of course, Google Now will play a big part, providing information about attractions, directions and more when relevant to the user.
Examples of how the glasses can be used include turn-by-turn navigation, taking photos and translating languages on the spot.
The video depicts a combination of people going about their everyday lives and other adventures, like skydiving, and shows them using Glass to record video, take pictures or navigate.
According to Google’s website, Google Glass will come in five colors: charcoal, tangerine, shale, cotton and sky.
