How exactly will it feel to wear Google Glass and how will your self-esteem be affected knowing how ridiculous you’ll look sporting the device?
Google answered at least one of those questions Wednesday morning, divulging a lot more information about Project Glass, including the user interface, with a series of photos and videos.
Once engaged, Glass is capable of taking photos, recording videos, looking up answers on Google, showing reminders, and sharing whatever you’re looking at — either via messaging or through a Google+ Hangout.
Google also announced it will select up 8,000 applicants to become “Glass Explorers” by answering the question: “What would you do if you had Glass?” Applicants who are selected for the program will be eligible to shell out $1,500 for the gadget—because why pay people to test your product when you can get them to pay you.
