Google has finally learned how to show instead of tell. Shot from the point of view of the Google Glass wearer, the video below, shows skydivers, ice skaters, ballerinas, skiers and pilots enjoying all of the augmented-reality and photo-capturing goodness of the glasses. Also, images on the Google Glass website show more uses for the frames, including voice translation, voice messaging and live directions, among other cool features.

Google will officially launch the "Google X Project" mid 2014. But if you want to get your hands on one at their early testing stage, you've got to be a “bold and creative” individual and use Google+ or twitter to tell them what you would do if you had the glasses. Starting with the hashtag #ifihadglass

Next steps:

Your application must be 50 words or less You must include #ifihadglass in your application You can include up to 5 photos with your application You can include a short video (15 secs max) Be sure to follow us on Google+ (+ProjectGlass) or Twitter (@projectglass) so that we can contact you directly You must be at least 18 years old and live in the U.S. to apply
