  • Google Glass: first video user guide released - 01 May 2013
    "Google has released an introductory video about its wearable Glass computer, showing how to use the touchpad, the timeline and share pictures...
    The glasses, which are due to go on sale towards the end of this year, contain a battery, a tiny computer, a camera and a wireless link.
    They give the wearer a “heads up display” which they can activate using simple voice or finger commands.
    The wearable technology can shoot video, take pictures and broadcast whatever the user sees...
    The user's every sight will be augmented with extra information, and everything recorded..."
