And in my hands-- yup.
I have Google Glass.
This really has the whole tech world buzzing.
And we wanna really breakdown what this is.
Now, the first thing is not everyone can get a pair of these.
You gotta be part of Google's Explore Program, and it cost $1,500-- they don't come cheap.
But what this is really for us for developers, you know, people that are trying to come out with new apps and ways to use the actual Google Glass.
And what you see here is, this is a frame here.
It's not actually a pair of glasses.
It's a thin Titanium and sturdy frame.
And what it does, it has
this piece of glass right here.
This is where an image is projected or kind of a heads up display for what you have here.
So, let me show you how these work.
I'm gonna put these glasses on in.
Kev, I'm gonna make this look good.
Check it out.
But the first thing you have to do is, first of all, you can either tap the side or do a little head bob and it activates the screen.
You can see it turned on and I'm gonna start by saying, "Okay, Glass".
Okay, let's give this a shot.
I have a variety of options and here, I'm gonna say, "Record a video." And you'll see my screen changing.
Now, you guys can see
what I see.
I have Michael and Jay here.
Say what's up, wave hi.
There you go, right?
Now, you can also do a lot of other things with this.
You can use them for map directions.
You can actually Google items, names, people or places.
And it does require a data connection, so that means, you're gonna have to have a phone tethered to this over Bluetooth or even over Wi-Fi.
So, my first impressions of Glass-- I mean, these things are amazing.
This is really the future and we've never seen anything like this.
But wearing them is a little socially awkward.
You know, Jay, what's up bro?
Are you gonna kick it later tonight
Jay-- but really, this is the future and you know it can only get better.
