First short film shot 100% using Google Glass prototypes debuts

If nothing else, Google Glass will make for one fancy (and pricey) accessory at Fashion Week for years to come.

After Google Glass was unveiled at Google I/O this past June, there was a lot of buzz and excitement, but also a lot of curiosity as to how this technology could be used.

That might be answered more when prototypes start rolling out next year to developers who registered to pay $1,500 for a unit and they start trying out their own ideas.

But until then, Google Glass remains a very fancy and pricey video camera, and maybe even a designer fashion accessory.

That's because Google Glass was integrated into the Diane von Furstenberg show on Sunday at New York Fashion Week earlier this week, which led to the production of DVF through Glass, the first short film shot 100 percent using Glass prototypes.

Here's how fashion met technology on the runway, according to Google:

Celebrated fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg tried on Glass for the first time a few months ago at a conference that she attended with Sergey Brin. She immediately loved it and they agreed to bring Glass to New York Fashion Week. Diane is a champion for innovation and effortless design, so it’s unsurprising that Glass fit seamlessly into her production. In the week leading up to her Spring 2013 show in New York, and during the show itself, everyone from stylists and models to Diane herself used Glass to capture never-before-seen footage of the creative process.
