Google has released a new video depicting the company’s latest invention - Google Glass, a wearable headset that gives a fresh look at the world.
Google Glass announced the project last year, and clip revealed this week offers new details about the functionality of this futuristic device. Google Glass allows users to receive and execute instructions on “screen” (which is designed in the right side of the right eye) to send messages and use the Internet using voice commands. Also, the video suggests that the device will allow users to access services on-screen translation.
Google estimates that the product will be launched in 2014, but it is already available for those who want to develop applications for Glass. The price is pretty steep: $ 1,500. Also, currently only persons residing in the United States may order this product.
