Google Glass

You might have heard some mumblings of something coming from Google called Google Glass. Well, it looks like they’re ready to let a select few try them out by applying to be an Explorer. What is Google Glass you say? It’s a wearable device that appears to be eyewear and is supposed to give you some kind of alternate reality experience.

Check out this video where it gives you a first-hand look at what Google Glass is:

Once the device is activated, it aids you with taking photos, recording videos, showing you directions right in front of you, answering questions you have, and so on. You can even share what you’re looking at with your friends.

So, if you want to get in on the Explorer contest, go here for more details.

What do you think of this idea? Would you try it out?
