Google has posted the full video from its Project Glass presentation at last month's SXSW event, showcasing the augmented reality specs in detail for the first time. In the demo, the company showed off the third party software created so far for the device.

Google Glass is the search company's wearable technology initiative due to be released before holiday 2013. The technology lets users view notifications, map directions and record video, via voice actions and a small interface visible in their field of vision.

The 50-minute speech, from Google developer advocate Timothy Jordan, includes a demo of Glass, but is primarily geared toward developers.

Google did not release an API, but it wanted to give developers more details about Glass, so they could start thinking about what they might bring to the table.

Jordan did, however, show off some of the apps that are expected on Google Glass, from Evernote to the New York Times.

Ultimately, Jordan said, the point of Glass is to not take people out of the moment. "By bringing technology closer, we can get it more out of the way," he said.
