Google Demonstrates Glass UI, App Integration


Google Glass certainly looks cool, and for all we know it may revolutionize how we interact with our phones, computers… heck, even the the world around us. For as intriguing as it is, though, we bet a whole lot of you have been a bit hung up on wondering just what it might be like to use. What are you going to see? How will you interact with Glass? This week at the South by Southwest festival in Austin Google gave a demonstration answering many of these questions, which has luckily been captured on video for us all to enjoy.

We get to see things like how you take pictures, how you can review and share them, and how they can be annotated with the help of external Android apps. Google also shares details of Glass’s translation system, and shows how Gmail integration works, doing both speech-to-text as well as including recording of your original voice message.

While it all has hints of familiarity (at least for Android users), the navigation constraints of voice control, head gestures, and touchpad input might take some getting used to. Still, it seems quite full-featured for what it is, and this demo has us anxious to finally get our owns hands on Glass one day.
