Google posts Google Glass explainer video for those who couldn't attend SXSW

Google releases Google Glass explainer video originally filmed at SXSW conference

For those interested in learning more about Google Glass, Google has posted up an explainer video that was filmed at the SXSW conference in Austin, Texas. The video runs for roughly an hour and talks about the abilities of Google Glass and explains the Mirror API for the developers among you.

 

 

Project glass is about our relationship to technology. It's about technology that's there when you want it but out of the way when you don't. It feels like technology is getting in the way more than it needs to. And, that's what we are addressing with project glass. It's so that you can still have access to the technology that you love but it doesn't take you out of the moment.

 

Google is still aiming to have a consumer-ready version of Glass on the market by year's end, though Timothy Jordan, Google's developer advocate, says Glass is still in the beginning stages.

 

If you've ever wondered what it's like to look through the lens of Glass, what the video above as Jordan shows a video looking through the lens. "By bringing technology closer, we can get it more out of the way."
