Google is giving glimpse into how its futuristic glasses would "feel" in a video posted on YouTube Wednesday.
Google Glass is augmented reality eyewear that uses voice recognition to take commands and display information. Some examples of how the glasses can be used include turn-by-turn navigation, taking photos and translating languages on the spot.
The video depicts a combination of people going about their everyday lives and other adventures, like skydiving, and shows them using Glass to record video, take pictures or navigate.
According to Google's website, Glass will come in five colors: charcoal, tangerine, shale, cotton and sky. Eager fans can apply to become an early tester, or as the search giant calls it: Glass Explorer. Developers can pre-order glasses for $1,500. There is no current pricing and availability for consumers.
