Google Project GlassMOUNTAIN VIEW, USA – Google has released a new video (below) demonstrating the functions of its smart eyewear, Project Glass, and opened a competition for it.

The Google Glass can be used for a variety of functions and it can be controlled with voice commands. In the video, the device responds whenever the user says ‘Ok glass’ followed by a command. This gadget can fulfil commands related to recording video, clicking pictures, search query, video chat, and driving directions.

The physical dimensions of the glass are quite simply those of ordinary eyewear. There is a transparent screen on the upper right corner of the visual field of the user. The screen displays all the actions performed using the device. Glass comes with a processor, camera, tracking sensors and other features that can be helpful in fulfilling the commands of the user.

The significance behind this product is that it lets users capture the memorable moments in real time. Clicking pictures and capturing videos are much simpler with this device than with any other cameras or smartphones we have right now. Google has opened a contest on Twitter and Google+, asking users what they’d do if they had one of these, and to respond via video to qualify for a Google Glass device.
