According to the video, Google Glass will allow users to:
- Receive and execute onscreen directions.
- Send video.
- Send text messages.
- Send pictures.
- Search the web using speech.
- Translate using voice.
The video is shown through the eyes of sky-diving adrenaline junkies, ping-pong players, a trapeze artist and a ballerina, to name a few. To activate the device, all the users need to do is say "Ok, glass" and the device goes to work for them.
The ad accompanies a new viral marketing campaign that will allow non-developers to get their hands on an early model. Using Twitter or Google+, you can win an early Glass prototype by typing 50 words under the topic of #ifihadglass. You can also include photos or even a short video to support your application.
Winners still have to pay for their early model ($1,500 plus tax) but they'll be able to pick one up early at sessions held in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Click here for more info.
