What Using Google’s High-Tech Glasses Looks Like (VIDEO)

Google on Wednesday gave the world an extensive look at what using their hi-tech computerized glasses, known as Project Glass, would actually feel like.

A new video shown below highlights numerous activities from a first-person perspective, while simultaneously being able to take a picture or video, send a text message, hold a Google Hangout or check your calendar. Perhaps most interesting, however, is the ability to follow travel directions in real time.

Google hasn’t yet announced a release date, but it has made experimental versions of the device available to an exclusive group of members at $1,500 per pair. They are reportedly shipping in early 2013.
