Google’s Project Glass spotted at New York Fashion Week

Project Glass are the augmented reality glasses that Google are working on.

Until now they have only been seen during tech demonstrations. It now appears that they have escaped into the wild as they were used at Diane von Furstenberg’s show for New York Fashion Week to record the goings on from behind the scenes.

Whether you love or hate the idea of Project Glass this does show one of the uses for the glasses. A quick and easy way to capture images and video footage to give a first person perspective. Although I am sure there are cheaper options as they currently cost $1500 a pair.

All the footage from the fashion show will be edited into a short film called DVF through Glass which will be out on 13th September.

Until then DVF posted many photos taken from models and others wearing Google’s glasses over on their G+ page.

Below is some unrelated footage that was taken using the glasses.

I am sure if they make the Glasses in the style of Spider Jerusalem’s from Transmetropolitan by Warren Ellis they would make many people very happy.
