Google has released teasers of its yet-to-be-released Google Glass, the high tech eyewear that is essentially a smartphone for your face.

The official promo video released Wednesday features Google Glass being used by many in a myriad of ways, from live recording of a sky diving a jump to taking photos by voice command to taking getting flight information while racing to the terminal.

Images on the Google Glass website, show even more uses for the dynamic frames, which include voice translation, voice messaging, and live directions, among many other features.

What might be a tech enthusiast’s dream, Google Glass won’t yet be available for retail anytime soon, but those interested can apply in order to receive a pair.

“We’re looking for bold, creative individuals who want to join us and be a part of shaping the future of Glass,” Google says.

Until Feb. 27, consumers can apply to be a “Glass Explorer” and test a special edition of the gadget by using Google+ or Twitter to share what they would do if they had a pair.

Beginning with the hashtah #ifihadglass, applicants must describe what they would do with Google Glass in 50 words or less.

Visit the Google Glass website for further instructions.

Being among the first to try Glass won’t come cheap. Those selected will have to shell out $1,500 for a pair, as well as a chance to attend a special pick up event in New York, San Francisco or Los Angeles.
