It's a clip of someone wearing the Project Glass specs and performing backflips on a trampoline.
Google has released the first video taken from its "Project Glass" sci-fi eyewear prototype, a short clip showing someone doing backflips on a trampoline. Granted the footage may actually put some viewers to sleep, it shows a significant step forward in creating a gadget that could make everyone a Peeping Tom.
The footage was originally shown at the Google+ Photographer's Conference in San Francisco earlier this week, presented by software engineer Max Braun. "This one makes us a little queasy, but our prototype nailed what it’s like to be on a trampoline," reads the video's caption over on Google+.
"I think that [Project Glass] can bring about a new style, a new kind of photography that allows you to be much more intimate with the world that you are capturing," Google co-founder Sergey Brin said later on in the conference while narrating a series of photos.
Like the images previously released, the new video isn't of extreme high quality, but gets the headgear's ultimate potential across nonetheless. The resolution aspect has been somewhat of a hot topic for Google since the project's debut, with critics of the device complaining over the overall image resolution presented thus far.
Brin addressed the criticism during the conference by reminding everyone that the eyewear isn't a final product. "[The glasses] are not beta, these are not alpha, these are kind of rough off the lab floor," he said.
Google revealed Project Glass back in April. Most of what we've seen thus far are images taken by Brin in several locations and scenarios including walking down a city alleyway, taking a jog, strolling in the rain and so on.
The specs supposedly project augmented reality images into the wearer's field of vision, and perform tasks that can be done with a smartphone. These tasks include sending emails, checking the calendar, and getting an update on the weather -- all of which is projected right in front of the user's eyes. Information is controlled by using gesture and voice controls.
