BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Though it hasn't hit store shelves yet, there are predictions that Google Glass could quite literally change the way we see the world.
The futuristic-looking glasses are being tested by Peter Stergion of WNY. He won a contest through Google and paid $1,500 to get the new technology. The glasses allow the user to take pictures and video, search on Google, get directions, send messages and e-mails, and can even translate your voice.
To operate the glasses, you can tap on the side or speak aloud.
Stergion said, "It looks like a five- or six-foot screen projected across the room."
And he adds the picture quality is great. Rumor has it we'll all be able to look through the glass next year.
