Gothamist ran into a person testing out Google Glass in New York City’s East Village and conducted an impromptu interview.Here are a few things we learned:

  • The glasses “basically do everything that a smartphone can do, but faster and without having to pull out your phone.”
  • People will be able to tell when you’re not paying attention to them – your interactions with the glasses are noticeable.
  • Even if it weren’t her job to test them, the Google employee says she’d “absolutely” still use them herself.
  • You can scroll through Web pages by making a scrolling motion with your finger next to the headgear.
