New Google Glass UI video shows off search, camera, and voice translation features

Google today posted a video preview of its forthcoming Google Glass wearable headset, providing a fresh, and more realistic look at the device’s user interface. It’s got a brand new look at the UI (much more similar to Google Now than what we saw the last time around), and there’s a lot of Siri-esque discussion with people talking directly to “Glass.”

Based on the demo, Google Glass will allow users to receive and execute onscreen directions, send voice-controlled messages, and search the web through speech. The UI also includes voice-controlled photos, and suggests that the device will offer onscreen translation support — a rather notable development that Google hadn’t mentioned in previous announcements.
