Google’s Project Glass has been out in the wild again, and this time it came back with a video sample.
It seems that Google has no hesitation in taking its new Google Glass project out into the public. Yesterday, Google+ Developer Relations Chris Chabot posted a a story on his Google+ account about a photo tour he went on with some folks. We’re sure folks that saw a platoon of Google employees walking around with this device on must have thought the Borg truly had landed to assimilate mankind.
Google Glass Walk
Yesterday we were lucky enough to be able to take a very small group of our friends on a very special photo walk where they could try out +Project Glass.
I think the general reaction for anyone who got to put them on was whoah, we’re in the future already it’s such an exciting project and to imagine what will be possible with these in the future, is like reading a scifi story, to me it’s right up there with self driving cars and jet packs, apparently the future really is now!
I managed to get a few fun shots of +Sergey Brin, +RC Concepcion, +Peter Hurley, +Colby Brown, +Brian Matiash, +jordon yates, +Barry Blanchard, +Trey Ratcliff, +Brian Rose and some of the Glass team members during the walk.
Thanks for joining us everyone, it was a hella fun time imagining what the future will look like with all of you!
I couldn’t resist including a meta shot of Sergey showing a photo he took of me with Google Glass of me taking a photo of him
Oh and I wasn’t nervous taking +Peter Hurley‘s portrait at all, I mean he’s only one of the best portrait photographers in the world right?
Not shot on the photo tour, however, was a sample video of what you can do with these glasses that we posted at the top of this post. We’ve already seen a sample of the unusual types of photos this device could capture, but can you imagine this trampoline video being shot with a handheld video camera? Not an easy feat.
