Google Glass

Google GlassIt’s been almost a year since Google first unveiled its vision for Project Glass, but on Wednesday the company has expanded preorders and released a new overview video, demonstrating how the glasses display interactions and services when they are in use. Google had originally opened preorders at Google I/O 2012, allowing developers and some media to reserve their spot in the line to get their hands on the first sets of Project Glass headsets. Since then, Google employees — including Sergey Brin — have toured the US (and other countries), testing them on the ground and snapping photos from many high-profile events. The video demos voice interactions, photo and video capabilities, sharing features, turn-by-turn navigation and Google Now integration. Expanding preorders to “bold, creative individuals,” Google wants a wider set of users to “be a part of shaping the future of Glass.”
