google glass: how it feels to use augmented reality

 

 

google has released launch information about its ‘project glass‘ initiative – a wearable augmented reality device that interfaces
in realtime to accomplish tasks like video-calling friends, obtaining GPS directions, take memos or photos. set to launch on
february 27 for a handful of lucky testers, google has introduced a video that demonstrates how the UI will work – highlighting
all of its features in a short action film.

for more information about the ‘glass’ project, and how to participate in the testing program, see here.
