Google releases a first person video showing Project Glass in action

Google's latest spectacle-centric video has got our gadget glands salivating. But you'll need to jump through a few hoops to get your hands on one

It’s been a while since we chatted with a Project Glass engineer at a bar in Vegas, and now Google has released a new video showing off the smart specs from a first-person perspective.

Speaking the magic words “ok glass” activates Google’s clever specs, letting you snap photos, pull up directions, record videos and start a hang out.

Whether or not you’ll trust yourself with the expensive specs while flying in a hot air balloon, handling a snake or kendo fighting is another matter entirely – but we’re more than a little excited at the potential locked within Google’s clever eye wear.

Google also announced the expansion of its Project Glass Explorer scheme in which Project Glass hopefuls can apply for the privilege of pre-ordering a Glass Explorer Edition for a pricey US$1500.

If you’re one of the rich and lucky winners then you’ll be collecting your own pair of Project Glass specs from special pick-up events in New York, San Francisco or Los Angeles.

There’s still no release date for Project Glass but we’ll be sure to let you know as and when we can.
