The video highlights some of the features of the device, which can be accessed by the command “ok glass,” followed by a subsequent command, such as “take a picture,” “record a video,” “start a hangout,” or “get directions to.”

Glass can also display the current time or weather, translate languages, and can google photos or information. It also displays information based on your location without having to ask questions, such as notifying you of whether or not you're on time for your flight when in an airport. And all of this is voice-activated.

The video shows some of the more extreme activities in life, such as skydiving or spinning an aeroplane, making for a more elegant way to show people things they might not otherwise get to see. However, it is probably not a good idea to wear your $1,500 Google Glass on a roller-coaster if it goes upside down.

While Glass was only open to developers, Google is now accepting applications from “bold, creative individuals” in the US. The cost remains high ($1,500) and successful applicants must be able to attend an event in New York, San Francisco, or Los Angeles. Applications are open until 27 February and more details can be found here.
