Google Glass 101: How Glass Currently Works

It’s one thing to see what others are doing while wearing Glass, but we’ve yet to see what the interface actually looks and behaves like. That is until now.

Google has just released a new how-to video on getting acquainted with Glass. Tapping and swiping along the touchpad will get you in and out of actions like taking photos and checking the weather. The homepage consists of the time and a prompt to start speaking with the inanimate object on your head. The rest of the “timeline” shows what’s going on now or in your near future, like appointments or upcoming flights. Or, you know, taking photos and videos and sharing them to Google Plus.

While there’s a lot of tapping and swiping in the video, there’s zero evidence of where and when you can speak to Glass. But at least we now know how Glass kind of works in real life.
