    Google Glass Apps Shown Off at SXSW

    Just yesterday, the first slew of apps for Google Glass were demoed at the South by SouthWest event in Austin, TX. So far, the following apps are ready for the wearable computing device: The New York Times, Evernote, Skitch, Path and GMail. Here's a quick quote with some of the details,

    When an e-mail arrives, Google Glass wearers can use voice command to prompt Google's e-mail service to deliver the sender's image and subject line to the glasses' screen. Users can then tell the app what to write back.

    The New York Times application will deliver an article in the form of an image, headline, byline, and the number of hours ago the article was posted. A tap on Google Glass will prompt the glasses to then read you the article. A breaking news feature that automatically refreshes is also in the works, according to the report.

    Glass will also share images to Evernote and Skitch, and show you updates from your Path network, along with the ability to add emoticons to friends' posts and make comments.
    It's not much, but it's a pretty good start. We know that many folks are skeptical about the viability of this product, but there are just as many who are excited by the potential of Project Glass. If you are one of the later, share some of your ideas which would make the "Google Goggles" useful and engaging.

    Update: Here's a couple of videos of the presentation at SXSW:
