Google Glass UI shown off in new video

Google Glass UI shown off in new video Google has posted a video to show you how it feels to use its ambitious Glass prototype.
All the footage in the video is actually recorded through Glass. The video shows a variety of different scenarios, including sky diving, a rollercoaster ride, horse riding and more. You interact with Glass by simply instructing it to do something, like "record a video."

It also shows sharing images that you've just taken with contacts, and requesting that it shows you certain types of pictures.

Another part shows how you can ask Glass to translate words for you, and get a response pretty quickly. Glass is still very much a work in progress, but it is headed in the right direction.

Not sure how I feel about a device that takes a constant camera feed of everything I say and do and that has a direct line to Google...

Scratch that, I'm pretty sure about how I feel -- wary.

You should only feel wary if you're required to wear the device. Furthermore, it does not record anything, until told to do so. I don't see the problem.

Well, it wouldn't be the first time Google "accidentally" recorded something. Ironic that the eyePhone was such an obvious jab at Apple, but Google has struck closest to it so far.
