Google shows off its Glasses in Texas

Google's Glasses are turning a few heads. Google's Glasses are turning a few heads. Google

Google is still out to prove it can be more fashionable than Apple, literally, with a visionary Google Glasses presentation at Austin’s South by Southwest Interactive.

The presentation held today featured flashy new apps from the New York Times, Evernote, Skitch, and Path, all which could be navigated using Google’s proprietary wearable Glasses.

Engadget reported on the host of apps, which will seemingly take everyday activities like reading a newspaper to a whole new level.

Google also featured its own Gmail app, in which Google Glass wearers can use Siri-style voice commands to prompt Google's e-mail service to deliver the sender's image and subject line to the glasses' screen.

The tech giant also showed off a pair of shoes, that make use of a custom-made microcontroller on the tongue of a pair of Adidas sneakers.

A speaker apparently provides feedback to whoever the wearer, either encouraging or discouraging them depending on the 'personality' of the shoes.

Google has said it is not releasing shoes any time soon.

Google's Glass product, however, is expected to arrive on the market later this year, and is already being trialled by Google employees, and select beta testers in the United States who had to shell out $1,500 a pop.
