This is the First Video Shot With Google Glass

By - Source: Google | B 15 comments

Google unveils the first video shot with Google Glass straight from New York Fashion Week.

Back in June, Google gave the world a little taste of its hype-generating Project Glass at Google I/O. Last week, the project made its way over to fashion week in New York City, generating additional buzz in the most stylish of fashions. While most of us won't be able to get our hands on a pair of Google Glass, we can now view the device through the eyes of designer Diane von Furstenberg.

DVF through Glass


Called DVF through Glass, the entirety of the film was shot using Google Glass prototypes. Debuted on Thursday, included text read:

Celebrated fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg tried on Glass for the first time a few months ago at a conference that she attended with Sergey Brin. She immediately loved it and they agreed to bring Glass to New York Fashion Week. Diane is a champion for innovation and effortless design, so it’s unsurprising that Glass fit seamlessly into her production. In the week leading up to her Spring 2013 show in New York, and during the show itself, everyone from stylists and models to Diane herself used Glass to capture never-before-seen footage of the creative process.

When examining video quality, Google's glasses may pale in comparison to a number of  available miniature cameras, but the device is still well in its prototype stages and may likely feature further improvements in the designs to come.

    ... what about the video we all saw from the 'demo' with the skydivers and bikers and such? I thought that was 'first'

    The quality is not bad at all considering the size of the glasses. I'll be sure to get this once it's out. perfect for outdoor hiking and climbing. Good replacement for my big GoCam.

    The camera is cool and everything, but the main feature I really want is the head-mounted display. I can't wait until this gets finished and available to the general public. What I am really excited for is when something like this isn't just a display, but also a computer (as of right now, I'm pretty sure Glass is going to just be a display and camera, but I'm not sure; I could be completely wrong [and I hope I am]).

    I just had a random thought, but can you focus to see the image on the glasses with them that close to your eyes?

    First time I saw a demo with Glass it was about integrating the feed from the camera with the additional info that comes from other apps, like Maps etc., so it would actually confer a utilitarian HUD for the user. It comes along nicely, but it's not there yet.

    They need to intergrade the camera on a smaller factor, unless they want all the people to look like a Borg trooper or something..

    How is this going to work if most people are stuck with 2GB of bandwidth per month? A HUD sounds interesting. More and more police are using 'body worn' cameras. May be those will start to go live so the police chief can be in on all the action from the station house. (I've been using a concealed helmet mounted camera for protection from neighbors and local police who are upset because I won't let them and their buddies trespass on my property. Here is a $38 Chinese keychain camera recording 3 police officers confronting a landowner. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luF4KLhPydc )

    Lady Gaga designed video camera glasses with Polaroid before Google ever mentioned glass. Until this thing gets a HUD, I'm thinking Lady Gaga wins.

    These Glass videos have taught me that our brains do a helluva lot of processing without us knowing it to stabilize the image our eyes send to it.
