Google Glass may be the future, but one of the things it does best is capture the present.
A new stop-motion film "Catch: A Handimation Through Glass" was made by stitching together more than 1,000 photos and drawings taken on Google Glass, a wearable computer. The nearly three-minute video captures a “surreal moment on a lazy Sunday morning,” as described on the creator's YouTube account.
Filmed from the perspective of a man sitting alone at a coffee shop, the video begins with a cutesy flirtation and spins into a wildly surreal adventure that all occurs in the palm of the Glass wearer’s hand.
The film was shot over the span of four days by Goggle’s Tu Uthaisri and a group of filmmaker friends to showcase Glass’ ability for storytelling. Google Glass issued the following statement on its Google Plus account:
Since the beginning, filmmakers have been telling us how they would use Glass for storytelling. Now that the Explorer Program is underway, there's a lot of directing, producing and exploring happening, and we're inspired. Filmmakers from the Glass Creative Collective, our partnership with top-notch film schools, will be sharing more in the coming months. In the meantime, here's Catch, a short film by our very own +Tu Uthaisri.
Watch the amazing video above. (It might even give you some ideas for when Glass publicly launches in 2014.)
