Google Glasses

Google has debuted the first video taken with its new set of eyewear from its Project Glass project.

For those of you who haven’t been keeping up, Project Glass’ sci-fi-looking glasses allow a person to do many of the same things you do with your smartphone, except without the need of a separate device. The eyewear displays user interfaces for different programs, allows you to snap pictures, and as we said, even record live video (in this case, it’s a bit nausea-inducing).

Over the past week, Google co-founder Sergey Brin and others from the company have been field testing the eyewear and taking pictures to show off what it can do in a real life setting.

We’ve embedded the video below of a Google employee performing flips on a trampoline. Let us know what you think in the comments.
