Project Glass Has A Trackpad?!
Yep you heard it here, and… on TV, but mostly here. Have any of you wondering how in the world does one navigate through all the different menus and apps while using Glass? Does Glass use similar software/hardware as the SGS3 and detect eye movement? That would be amazing. Also on that note how are pictures taken? Just by saying cheese? Wouldn’t that become difficult when at a restaurant among other places?
Well Glass co-founder Mr. Sergey Brin can answer a couple of those questions for us. His indirect answer is: It’s simply a trackpad. Yup, just a trackpad. you guys see that big block on the right side of the Project, that’s the trackpad.
On the trackpad you can slide your finger either right to left for those respective movements in the screen, and also up and down for those movements. This way you can navigate through apps, pictures, and all other sorts of nonsense.
Mr. Brin was with California Lieutenant Governor and former San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom, this week and appeared beside him on his television show ‘Current TV’. On Current, Brin took a picture with the glass and then navigate through recent pics with the trackpad. The real giveaway of the hardware was when Brin allowed Newsom to try on the glasses, Brin said “don’t touch the pad on the side.” Boom. Dead giveaway.
Now this episode of Current won’t be on air until Friday, but Current has released a little snippet of the episode that we have for you all here:
How does this make you all feel about Project Glass?
