Perhaps not wanting to leave a bad impression on the 2013 SXSW attendees, Google also previewed the much hyped Glass wearable computer at the festival. Videos of the talk given by Google Senior Developer Advocate Timothy Jordan about their wonder device have now made their way online.

Below is an excerpt from Jordan’s presentation, as edited by YouTuber lifechannelable. In it Jordan demonstrates the ways you can interact with Glass. Most of them are swipes made on the plastic surface of the computer as well as voice commands. Jordan also shows the appropriately minimal user interface as well as sample programs written for Glass.

Here’s the full 50-minute presentation:

I’m still not sold on the value of Glass, but if there’s anything to take away from the demo, it’s how impressive Google’s voice recognition technology has become. Seriously. That’s all I could think of while watching the videos.
