After much secrecy, Google has recently been opening up a bit more about Project Glass. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that Google hopes to get their wearable computing device one people’s faces in the very near future. Maybe it’s just because Glass is finally refined and developed enough to warrant public presentation. Either way, if you’re dying to know more about Glass or how developers can utilize the unique hardware, look no further than the above video.
Presented at this year’s SXSW, a talk entitled “Building New Experiences with Glass” featured Google Senior Developer Advocate Timothy Jordan going over some of the finer points of the Android-powered headwear and its Mirror API. While it’s still more of a general overview than anything else, the discussion could be particularly useful for anyone thinking about building apps for Glass. Jordan insists it isn’t all that difficult.
But most will want to check out the video to see one of the better demonstrations of how Glass works, how it functions in day-to-day life, and why it might actually be worth adorning the goofy-looking headset.
