New photos and videos shown for Google Glass Project

Google's Project Glass is a series of devices which have a built in HUD and have the ability to take pictures and videos. As the name suggests, these are wearable so the hassle of holding your camera steady to record footage is completely eliminated.

Google has been testing these glasses in the past few months and during this process, the company has been very public about the progression of the device. Google co-founder Sergey Brin showed off the glasses at a charity event in April and more recently, Google employees have published a series of photos from an even more recent "Google Glass Walk" this week. The photos show Sergey Brin, Colby Brown, Peter Hurley, and other Google employees using the prototype glasses in public — which could indicate the glasses are ready to be moved out of the labs for extensive prototyping.

The company has also featured a video recording sample from the Project Glass Device on Google+. The video is just 15 seconds long and shot in 720P and it shows what it's like to be on a trampoline while using Project Glass. The video sample can be seen below:

There currently isn’t an estimated release date for the gadget, but it’s sure to be something to wait around for regardless.

What is with all these tech companies putting cameras everywhere... it's quite annoying to be honest. There's no such thing as privacy anymore. There's more important things in the world that they should be researching and innovating on. Oh well.

...shows what it's like to be on a trampoline while using Project Glass.

I must be missing something. That looks just like a person on a trampoline from the perspective of the person.

That's the point.

So basically this article is just about a head mounted video camera then? Nothing about the unique features of Google Glass? I was expecting some kind of heads up display to be shown overlaid on it or something.

It's to showcase the quality of the video capture, not the UI. Previous image leaks were less than inspiring but this shows a marked improvement.

Ok, so a 720p head mounted video camera. I'm thrilled. :-/

Eye mounted. They're glasses with a HUD too - it's not just about the camera aspect.. it's more the what you see is what you capture. It's part of Google's vision to take away the physical aspect of technology - which can be overwhelming to older users. This is why they're now incorporating tech like this into more casual pieces of equipment.

I'm right there with ya dude. The common person does not at all need this device.

One day we will be saying "What did we do without these?". I mean think about how people felt when cell phones came out. Anything that people can potentially benefit from is welcome. Stuff like this could save lives if done right.
