google glass

Google Glass has been getting more attention than ever.  With all of this attention, is it not surprising that there is more and more information coming out about Google’s semi-top-secret project.  Thankfully, this latest piece of information, is not just a rumor.  The latest information comes directly from Soumya Mohan, who went to Quora to describe his experience with Glass after he got to use them at a Stanford Tech Talk.  Below is what he said about the interface and how Glass really works.

I recently got the opportunity to try on the Google Glass at a Google tech talk in Stanford. It definitely seemed like a work in progress.

After I wore the glasses and they were turned on, a small screen was visible on the top right corner.

The first screen I saw was a list menu with black background and words written in white. As far as I can remember, some of the options in the menu were

  • Click a picture
  • Shoot a video
  • Voice call

The screen was fairly small so that I could only see 4-5 items of the list on the screen at a time. Moving my head up and down also caused the list to scroll in a vertical fashion.

I could use speech recognition to command the Glass to perform any of the actions above. The right part of the glass frame near my ear also functioned as atouchpad.

clicked a picture using the voice command. The screen automatically showed me the clicked picture just after I instructed the device to click it.

Though it was a short interaction, I was very excited to lay my hands on such a futuristic piece of technology.

While this gives us no new information about when developers will get their hands on their own, personal Glass, you can be sure that I will bring you information about Glass as soon as I get my Explorer Edition.
