Google has released a new YouTube video called ‘How it feels [through Glass] that shows you what it’ll be like to wear its
Google Glass eyewear.
The video is shot in first person view, and shows a variety of people doing interesting things (skydiving, skiing, ice skating, going on roller coasters, and so on) while issuing voice commands.
The commands all start with “OK Glass…”, which it seems is how you start an interaction with the device. So you hear people say “Ok Glass, record a video” and then see a video being recorded on screen.
Other interactions include taking photographs, starting a Google Hangout (video chat), performing Google image searches. There are also displays showing turn-by-turn directions, weather reports, and sharing images and messages.
The video has the following information from Google”
“Want to see how Glass actually feels? It’s surprisingly simple. Say “take a picture” to take a picture. Record what you see, hands free. Even share what you see, live.
Directions are right in front of you. Speak to send a message, or translate your voice. Get the notifications that matter most. Ask whatever’s on your mind and get answers without having to ask.”
Apple is also said to be working on heads-up display eyeglasses and also a wearable watch.
