Google releases second video promoting Google Glass

The company is planning to release its futuristic augmented reality “glasses” later this year. While the first video tracked a New Yorker’s mundane errands through the city, the new clip is a dizzying, high-octane view of Glass’s functionality – as seen by skydivers, equestrians, cat-walking fashion models and ballerinas. The clip is intended to show how it feels to wear Google Glass, which appears as a small, suspended screen that can show images, messages, translations, mapping information and video chats with people who aren’t present. Google demonstrates how users can share what they’re doing by snapping photos, recording video or broadcasting a live video feed of what’s in front of their face. Users can also send voice messages. Other unique uses will promoted closer to its release.
