Fresh details about Google's eagerly-anticipated smart glasses have been released by the company.

A YouTube video uploaded by the company shows Google Glass in action, including the interface that appears in the wearer's line of sight.

The demonstration video showed how Google Glass can be used to take pictures and record video, as well as share content directly via email or social networks.

Other features appeared to include Skype-like video chats, and other related information, such as weather reports and map directions.


According to the description provided with the video: "Want to see how Glass actually feels? It's surprisingly simple. Say "take a picture" to take a picture. Record what you see, hands free. Even share what you see, live.

"Directions are right in front of you. Speak to send a message, or translate your voice. Get the notifications that matter most. Ask whatever’s on your mind and get answers without having to ask."
