Eight thousand contest winners were selected by Google last week to test out the company’s new internet-connected mobile device known as Google Glass, which is worn like a pair of eyeglasses. Here are some of the features of the revolutionary wearable computer:

  • Constant real-time video stream of whatever’s in front of you
  • Little fan to keep your eye cool
  • Location-sensing technology automatically calls nearest emergency personnel when distracted wearer is hit by car, train, bus, or cyclist
  • Not removable
  • Wearers can easily enter text using cheek-mounted keypad
  • Grappling hook that shuttles glasses to safety any time wearer is imperiled
  • Allows user to take easy, hands-free photos at any time by just screaming as loud as possible
  • Sits far more comfortably on face than open laptop
  • Also allows Google to look into you
