Google releases new Glass video, shows why it's perfect for the average person
Unlike Google's previous videos showing off Google Glass, which showed things like Glass wearers skydiving, the latest video for the specs is much more, uh, down to earth. The video shows a few pals hanging around, asking unscripted questions of the Google Search app on the device, even requesting something as obscure as pictures of Richard Branson in drag.

The video showed twenty searches which included questions pertaining to foreign exchange, math and even the score of the San Francisco Giants' game against the Washington Nationals. And showing why Google Glass is the perfect accessory for the foreign traveler, a translation from English into Swedish is shown. And these Googlers are hip! Why there is even a reference to Breaking Bad thrown in.

What makes this video more appealing than some of the past ones is that this is the sort of activity you can see Glass wearers actually taking part in, goofing around and shooting the breeze. At the same time, there is plenty of useful information such as a flight schedule, navigation, and a weather forecast. Those who like the concept of Glass are going to love it while others will note that all of this information can already be found on their smartphone.

Ok not being racist over here but Im concern about the google glass fit for asian ppl. Im Chinese myself and as most ppl know asian face structure are different than western ppl. The google glass will definitely fit weird for an average asain ppl.

I think they'll be customizable because a lot of people have different facial structures and it would be a big miscalculation on their end if they don't take that into account. Plus, the Asian market is huge so they definitely wouldn't want to miss out on potential millions of sales.

you know there are Asian people here in America. I don't think the Google would leave out in the tire segment of people, not to be racist, but there are a lot of affluent and well to do Asians here in America. Google may not be Apple bUt Google still does like to sell their products.
