Google Glass Demonstration Video

Google has provided us with another tantalizing glimpse into how its Google Glass headset will look from a user’s perspective. In a new “Getting Started” demonstration video, Google shows how users can navigate through Glass’ main menu simply by swiping and tapping on the side of the headset to find and select icons. At the very least, the video shows that users won’t have to constantly shout out commands to their Glass headsets, and it shows that the Glass team has made some concrete decisions regarding how users will interact with Glass once it launches sometime next year. Google’s full video is posted below.
