Google have released more information about "Project Glass", their glasses with a heads up display, including uploading a video to Youtube that shows the users point of view

Google first announced Project Glass at a conference last year and there have been a few sightings of people using prototypes but this is the first time Google have shown what we can expect to see.

They are also looking for people to take part in trials of the glasses.

If you live in the US you can send a tweet with the hashtag #ifihadglass describing how you would use the glasses and Google may select you to be part of the trials, although you will still have to come up with $1,500 dollars to cover the cost of the hardware.

"We're looking for bold, creative individuals who want to join us and be a part of shaping the future of Glass. We're still in the early stages and, while we can't promise everything will be perfect, we can promise it will be exciting." said Google.

The video shows how Glass can be used to take pictures and record video, as well as share content directly via email or social networks.

Talking to Glass

Voice commands such as "OK, Glass, take a picture" are used to control the device.

Other features include video calling, and other location based information such as weather reports and driving directions.

All the information appears in a small, translucent square in the wearer's field of view.
