Google’s Project Glass won’t be ready for general consumption for some time. Developers are getting an early look at prototype devices early next year (we’ll be grabbing a few), and the plan then is to refine the device for a public release closer to 2014. Obviously, the concept still needs a bit more time in the oven. They don’t call it futuristic for nothing.

For those intrigued by what Google is doing with Glass, a new series of videos has launched called Glass Sessions. The first of which shows how Glass can be used to capture all the special moments that come along with raising a child, as well as easily share live video via a Hangout with a parent in a far away place. It’s just one of the many ways Google hopes to show the usefulness of Glass in our everyday life.

While it may be a bit hard to imagine using a device like Glass right now, the video perfectly demonstrates how seamless using the heads-up display can really be. Sure, it might take some time to get past how goofy you will look with a pair strapped across your brow, but there is no denying that Project Glass opens up a world of possibilities.
