Google today posted a video preview of its forthcoming Google Glass wearable headset, providing a fresh, and more realistic look at the device's user interface. The video, embedded below, was published early Wednesday after the company announced plans to expand its Glass pre-order program.

I need this in my life.

And then the glasses come off as you're at terminal velocity during sky diving. Bye Google glasses!

It won't work as well as the video suggests, at least not yet.

That doesn't stop me wanting though.

I'm anxious to see if Google takes this open source and manufacturers start bringing out different designs.

Yeah... Rayban has Google Glass 1.0 two years from now, Oakly is on Google Glass 2.7, and Fossil is at 1.2.

They need to keep it for themselves, the fragmentation of Android on Phones/Tablets is bad enough already.

this is sweet... this would be sweet for action cameras but no way they could get that quality of recording in such a compact space at a decent price... would people actually want to replace their phone for a pair of sunglasses? this is freakin sweet though and a good direction. I just hope they dont replace phones.

but you know what, this is a really good step. one of the next stages of Android. actual innovation.

Makes me think. If it really takes off there would be a huge black market for less than legal videos. People fighting in warzones, running from the cops or worse. The future will turn into an old sci-fi film Strange Days.

Still cool, though

Well the camera industry is already available today. You can get a camera smaller than a penny and just as flat and do all the same things Glass does for video. Most things are custom made though so it is not average consumer friendly. Just look at networks like the Discovery Channel or check out the Para Rescue Documentary soon to be on TV.

Glass is just offering the availability and ease of networking in one package on a consumer level. Which is awesome!

Well the way I propose they should make it now that you bring that up (rather than the OS itself being redistributed differently from each manufacturer) is all manufacturers would be required to pack the raw OS Google provides, and then the end users would have the freedom to update to the latest version available from Google; ideally making the Nexus program a standard for Google Glass.

Like nearly every gadget though, over time you can decrease the size of already existent hardware. In this day and age it really doesn't take much space to achieve 720p recording. Look at smartphones and video cameras like the GoPro and FlipHD.

Maybe do it Windows Phone style, where OEMs have to use Google approved hardware so all the updates could be pushed out simultaneously.

It worked for him, although I'm sure you can buy accessories to keep that on.

Well, if that were the case, that would be okay. The whole ROM debacle on phones/tablets is infuriating to customers. Hey, how come so-and-so's phone has the lastest update when it's 6 months older than my phone and I don't have it?! That's what people say.

Google needs to FORCE these mfgs to keep up to date for the 2 year cycle that they place customer's on for phones.
