Google has launched the trial of Google Glass to creative individuals and developers, in a bid to explore ways of using the new headset.
Google Glass is an Android powered, internet-connected device similar to a smartphone that operates on voice commands.
Google said in a statement that the company has been looking for bold, creative individuals who want to join and be a part of shaping the future of Glass.
"We’d love to make everyone an Explorer, but we’re starting off a bit smaller.
"We’re still in the early stages, and while we can’t promise everything will be perfect, we can promise it will be exciting."
The hands-free Google Glass can be used to capture pictures and record video, in addition to sharing content directly through email or social networks.
Features of the new device also include Skype-like video chats in addition to other related information such as weather reports and map directions, which would be displayed on a tiny screen attached to the rim in the top right of the users’ field of vision.
Google revealed that it had no plans to launch Google Glass in the mass market until 2014.
