Google has posted a video featuring fresh details about 'Glass,' the company's revolutionary Internet-connected glasses it plans to introduce next year.

The eagerly-awaited device will allow wearers to record video, capture images, make phone calls and access the Internet while on the move. It is anticipated that the ability to wear a mobile computer offering such easy access to the virtual world could well mark the next step in mobile computing.

The video footage, all captured by the computerised glasses and posted on YouTube today, shows how Glass could be used in different settings.

The device looks like a futuristic pair of wraparound glasses and features a camera, microphone and speaker to allow communication. It also features a virtual display positioned on the top right corner of the wearer's field of vision.
