Testing Out Google Glass

Trying on new ‘wearable technology’ isn’t exactly like trying on a new outfit at the mall. Google wants their ‘Google Glass’ to be part of your wardrobe .

Marcus Harun was selected as one of Google Glass’ first users. He’s documenting his experiences in his website google glass views – as a use for newsgathering

So we took it the glasses for a spin in a late season snowstorm. Recording instant video was an instant success – we even showed New Haven Mayor Toni Harp how to play with it at an emergency operations meeting.

But getting data with it was more difficult.

“Ook Glass, Google what is the temperature for tomorrow?”

It works…it’s scanning, trying to figure it out, and then, “Can’t reach Google right now.”

Harun says that when it comes to different uses for Google Glass, there’s no glass ceiling.
