Project Glass: Live Demo At Google I/O

Uploaded by GoogleDevelopers on 27.06.2012

>>Sergey Brin: Hey, Vic, I’ve got a really cool event for you. >>Vic Gundotra: Sergey!
[ Cheers and applause ] >>Sergey Brin: How are you doing?
>>Vic Gundotra: Guys, we -- we're going to -- we're going to do something pretty magical
here. And we have a special surprise for you.
>>Sergey Brin: We have something pretty special for you. It's a little bit time-sensitive,
so I apologize for interrupting. You've seen some really compelling demos here.
They were slick, they were robust. This is going to be nothing like that. [ Laughter ]
>>Sergey Brin: This can go wrong in about 500 different ways. So tell me now, who wants
to see a demo of Glass? [ Cheers and applause ]
>>Sergey Brin: So we've been really excited to test it for a few months. The unit I actually
really want to show you, I lent to a friend, and he's going to be here momentarily. My friend's J.T.
He does a lot of skiing, base jumping, wingsuiting, all sorts of crazy things. And he's actually
pretty close by. He's just about a mile overhead right now. [ Laughter ]
>>Sergey Brin: -- with his buddies they have a few Glass units. If you guys can maybe afford
to wait that couple of minutes. [ Applause ]
>>Sergey Brin: Maybe they'll bring them down. >>> They're cheering for us.
>>Sergey Brin: All right. We're about to get into a Hangout here with J.T.
Hey, J.T., J.T., can you hear me? >>> Yes.
>>Sergey Brin: Hello, hello. We might have a few technical issues.
>>> Can you hear me?
>>Sergey Brin: Yeah, yeah. Hey, we're just down here in Moscone. I’ve got a few thousand people here.
I was hoping to maybe get that unit that I lent you down here. And I thought maybe you
guys could show us a fun time on the way down.
>>> Yeah, if you can hear me down there. I've been listening to your speech through the
Hangout. It's pretty cool.
>>Sergey Brin: Cool, cool. I see you and friends are in a plane close-by there.
Any chance we can get a view out the window?
>>> Heck, yeah. It's beautiful, we had a visual on Moscone a minute ago.
>>Sergey Brin: All right. This is a Hangout from Glass. [ Cheers and applause ]
>>> Look at that! >>Sergey Brin: Yeah, yeah, yeah.
>>> Coming a little closer. I think we're going to get you that device pretty quickly, actually.
>>Sergey Brin: I see the roof of Moscone there. So if you guys can, you know, be safe, but
get it down here in a hurry for us, we'd love to watch that.
>>> Okay. Yeah, you'll have to standby. We've got our wing suits. So we've got a pretty
good range. It's kind of interesting. People have watched us fly many times before.
But I don't think that the world's ever tagged along live for a ride. I mean, we're --
nobody really knows the outcome of this jump. We're feeling really confident about it. [ Laughter ]
>>> How are you feeling, Pete?
>>Sergey Brin: We're all rooting for you. What do you guys think, should they go for it? [ Cheers and applause ]
>>> Not in position yet. About one minute, Sergey. Maybe you've got to entertain the crowd a little.
>>Sergey Brin: That looks like the view down, that looks like a long way down.
>>> Turn it sideways. >>> There's the ballpark. >>> This is good. Stop here. >>> Yeah, Moscone center. I've got a visual on you. [ Laughter ]
>>> Okay. >>Sergey Brin: So this is one of the things, as we've been experimenting with Glass, just
the ability to really share. And we've posted some pictures.
But as we start to experiment, being able to share what you're seeing live is really amazing.
And, you know, we're not -- we don't know what's going to happen here. These guys are
all really good. They're trained. And I have great confidence. But this is -- this is a demo that -- >>> Yeah.
>>Sergey Brin: All right. Door's open. Door's open.
>>> Let's -- we've got time. >>Sergey Brin: All right. Happy flight!
>>> You know what? We can jump. >>> Let's do it. It's going to be beautiful.
>>> It's going to be perfect. >>> Yeah! Look at that! >>Sergey Brin: All right.
>>> Yooo! San Francisco! [ Cheers and applause ]
>>> All right. Everybody's super happy. >>> Nice and close-in there.
>>Sergey Brin: They've got to get to the right place so they can hit the roof.
>>> Three, two --
>>Sergey Brin: I'm going to take a few pictures to record this for posterity. And they're off! [ Cheers and applause ]
>>Sergey Brin: All right. And they're flying. Look at that, look at that. You can see Moscone
right below there.
Live Hangout, through Google Glass. Four skydivers. And they're under canopy. Chutes are open.
Woo-hoo! [ Cheers and applause ]
>>Sergey Brin: Okay. Where's Vic. Vic, hey, look, this is a Hangout On Air. [ Laughter ]
>>Sergey Brin: So it's a little bit tricky landing on a building, as you might imagine.
I don't know if you have ever tried this kind of thing before.
But you can see all their perspectives now. They're going to have to line up one after
another to get down to the roof here.
It's a little bit of a -- it's a pretty big roof, actually, which is great for their landing.
And you can see there's -- there's a little yellow arrow they're aiming for.
It's pretty exciting. Hopefully, they land it.
All right. And they're coming in. First one's coming in.
>>> Woo-hoo!
>>Sergey Brin: All right. [ Cheers and applause ]
>>Sergey Brin: Yeah! [ Applause ]
>>Sergey Brin: So, okay, folks, thank you. Woo-hoo!
Hey, so the roof is a little bit big there, so it would take a while to run down the length of it.
So we got, actually, a few bikers up there for this eventuality.
We’ve got them wearing Glass, too. And there's our little package. Let's see if we can --
let's see if we can get it here in a hurry.
Here we go. First person with Glass, here are the bikers.
Yeah! Woo-hoo! Here they come down.
And, you know, there's only one good way down the side of a building.
>>> Have fun. >>Sergey Brin: It's pretty high up there if you haven't been there before. Don't try this
at home, kids. These are trained professionals.
>>> All right. Now we've got to get down there. Wanna unplug me?
>>Sergey Brin: All right, they're going. Wait, wait wait wait, whoa, whoa, whoa! No,
we’re on the third -- Okay. Close call.
Sorry about that. So this is pretty wild.
I've never seen that perspective before. And --
>>> Special delivery. Bring that to Sergey.
>>Sergey Brin: We still have a couple of bikes. Its a little bit of a long way. I apologize.
>>Sergey Brin: Don't run anybody over! [ Cheers and Applause ]
>>Sergey Brin: All right. Please stay in your seats, folks. Don't get into the aisles.
Please keep the aisles clear. Here they come up. [ Cheers and Applause ]
>>Sergey Brin: Yeah! Woo-hoo! [ Cheers and Applause ]
>>Sergey Brin: Yeah. That was awesome. All right. That was pretty amazing. [ Applause ]
>>Sergey Brin: All right. A big round of applause for our bikers. [ Cheers and Applause ]
>>Sergey Brin: I'll get a little picture of you there with my Glass.
All right. We've got -- I just wanted to -- some of our athletes who are performers I wanted
to give them another big round of applause. We have the rappellers in the back. And --
[ Applause ]
>>Sergey Brin: It takes a little while. And we've got the -- let's see.
And the skydivers should be close behind them. Thank you so much. That was amazing. [ Applause ]
>>Sergey Brin: Okay. All right. Thanks, guys. [ Cheers and Applause ]
>>Sergey Brin: All right. Now maybe we should -- well, all right. Come on up, guys. You're already here. Come on up, take a bow. [ Cheers and Applause ]
>>Sergey Brin: These are the rappellers, all the bikers you saw up there.
And there's the sky diving crew coming down the aisle. [ Cheers and Applause ]
>>Sergey Brin: Hey, J.T., that was amazing. We were worried about you. That was awesome.
All right, thank you all so much. Now maybe we should tell you a little bit about Glass. [Laughter]
>>Sergey Brin: All right, guys, have fun. You can meet them.
They'll be out and around if you want to chat with them. Thank you so much.
Now, here's what -- no, no. This is the wrong one. [Laughter]
>>Sergey Brin: I think we have to do it again. [Laughter]
>>> I'd be happy to.
>>Sergey Brin: We'll find the time. We actually might have the time.
If you want to see behind the scenes and maybe catch some of that activity on -- through Hangout, tune in tomorrow.
But now I just want to tell you a bit about how we made that happen and why we're so excited
about Glass, and to tell you that I have Babak and Isabelle. Please welcome them aboard.
