Here’s the live demo of Google’s Project Glass that was given by co-founder Sergey Brin yesterday at the company’s I/O conference in San Francisco. As we reported, they had five skydivers wearing the camera glasses beam footage of their jump live into the conference center through a Google+ hangout. If you think cameras are connected to the Internet now, just wait till Google Glass goggles are released sometime next year.
Yesterday we shared some new sample photos published by Google showing what its Project Glass prototype camera glasses are currently capable of. The video above is the first sample video captured using the glasses, and is a short 15-second clip showing a first person view of someone doing flips on a trampoline. With current cameras, the only way to achieve this kind of hands-free footage would be to use some kind of (relatively) unwieldy camera strapped to the head or body (e.g. a GoPro mounted on a helmet), but Google Glass would allow people to record this kind of thing by simply wearing a pair of glasses.
Looks like the blogosphere was right in December of last year when it guessed that a teaser put out by Polaroid was for a new instant camera launch at CES 2011. The company — along with Creative Director Lady Gaga — officially unveiled the camera today in Las Vegas, and also showed off a new printer and a bizarre pair of glasses as well.
