New Google Glass Video Shows You How To Use It

Welcome to the future. The confusing, complicated future. In this new video released Tuesday, Google finally demonstrates how to use Glass. In all of its previous videos, Google has just showcased the way users will see the world through Glass, not how Glass is physically used, and we have to say, it doesn't look easy.

Glass is mostly controlled by swipes of the finger on the right side of the frame between your temple and your ear. Tap to turn Glass on. Swipe backwards (left) to see future events. Swipe forwards (right) to see past ones. Tap on a card to see more information about it. Swipe down to go back. Tap on a photo to share it. Swipe to choose a friend. Tap to send the photo to a friend.

Is anybody else exhausted? With so many functions and so few gestures, Glass's design might be too simple for its own good.
