Google Glass And Fashion Collide In Short Film About Diane Von Furstenburg Shot Entirely With 'Glasses' [VIDEO]

Posted: Updated:

Google Glass -- the eagerly-anticipated, Internet-connected tech-specs being developed by Google -- have been all over the place in the past few months: They've gone skydiving; they've been trampolining; they've even strutted their stuff on the catwalk during New York Fashion Week.

Now, we can add one more venture to the Google Glass activity log: cameraman.

Google has released a short film about Diane von Furstenburg -- the legendary fashion designer who incorporated sets of Google Glass into her Fashion Week show last week -- which uses only footage recorded on the Glass camera before, during and after the DVF NYFW show.

You can watch the video below (and look out for the Sergey Brin cameo!):

Says Google about the film in the YouTube (natch) description:

Experience the DVF Spring 2013 show at New York Fashion Week through the eyes of the people who made it happen—the stylists, the models and Diane von Furstenberg herself. All the footage you see here was filmed using only Glass, Google's latest technology that lets you capture moments from a unique, new perspective. See what happens when fashion and technology come together like you've never seen before.

Though DVF seems enchanted by Google's Glass, others are more skeptical: A high-profile early review of the next-gen spectacles in the Wall Street Journal by Spencer Ante this past week notably called the futuristic glasses "not ready for the real world yet."

Google Glass is scheduled for release to the public by the end of 2013, so Sergey Brin and company have time to fix some of the problems Ante found. Google will ship prototype "Explorer Editions" sets to developers in early 2013; those sold for $1500 apiece, though the company says that Glass will be far cheaper when it goes on sale in stores.
