Project Glass is still a way off, but Google was keen to show off what it is capable of
Augmented-reality glasses are more real than with Google showing off a live demo of its Project Glass technology at an event in San Francisco.
The glasses, which amount to a smartphone attached to your face, will be available to developers in the USA for $1500. Google was keen to point out that this isn't yet a consumer product and is for those at the bleeding edge/cutting edge/something of technology.
In an audacious product demo Google's Sergey Brin hooked up live with some stuntmen in a blimp a mile above the Moscone Centre in San Francisco. Using a system called Google Hangout, a feature of the Google+ social network, Google use Glass to share live video from a team of skydivers as it happened.
Rather than have us witter on about it, why not take a look at the demo for yourself? Check it out in the YouTube video below.
