Are you prepared yourself for the Google Glass – still a wearable tech with a tiny screen protection that hovers in front of your face, voice commands and instant response to your most afforadble desires. To help prospective Glass owners understand how to use it, Google has released a how-to video clip detailing the inners and outs of owning one of the most chosen gadgets in tech. Currently, only developers, creatives and competition winners are lucky enough to be actually experiencing the digital spectacles firsthand, but with eventual consumer launch kept in mind, the Big G looks to be updating techies in anticipation for the next year’s end-user release.
What actually is Google Glass? Which makes you look a little bit like you’ve joined the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Google Glass could be the piece of powerful, yet elegent consumer technology that anyone can use it with almost no training. Google’s Project Glass is just over a year younger, but in such a short space of time, managed to generate a stocking amount of hype. Firm developers have recently been getting to grips with the wearable techi, with some of the key features in the business of software hacking having already made interesting progress on Glass’ Android-based firmware, which is more convinced that extraordinary promise resides in this high-tech monocle.
However, the prospect of gaining root access is an exciting inroad in determining exactly what Google Glass is capable of, nothing actually gets the tech world more enthusiast than the project of owning and using this tech gadget when it hits the market. Amazed at the reception Google Glass received, people are intrigued and about as excited as they were when the irst Apple iPhone hit the scene. Nevertheless, this could be a game changer!
The Google’s Glass is a touch-sensitive device (unless you put it in a guest mode), a gesture can change a setting, with all this talk of rooting, hacking, and extravagant price tags, it would be easy for the consumer market to feel something that detached from Glass, as if we witnessing a James Bond prop or somewhat from a sci-fi slick.
With the Google’s lastest video clip you’ll certainly get information as a quick-start guide, demonstrating the first few steps one must take having unboxed this child.
As mentioned its a simple touch of the touchpad to wake Glass, adjustment of the display to bring that augmented reality to the front, and the user has dived straight into the interface. It’s still intuitive, but only after you understand that a tap or head nod wakes Google Glass up and puts it to sleep. While the chronological timeline makes it easy for users to manage upcoming tasks and check those completed, and the whole OS appears very seamless in operation.
Using Google Glass, things you’ve done before are brought forward to your view by a swipe forward, and the future can be found by swiping back. Best part isa that menus with lists, looking up and down will take you up and down through the menu options. By using up/down gestures to dive in and out of menus.
Don’t be surprised if Google followed this up with an even deeper insight into the day-to-day user experience of Glass. Things have come a long way from those old 720p video recordings on the trampoline, and although a Play Store release would seem a long way off.
Google Glass is purely capable of a number of tricks that you’ll end up finding far more useful than you expected. While the Glass specs being officially touted by Google a while back, it’s safe to say that the Big G’s update would be the best prospect to keep buyers in the loop.
