The wearable computer that is Google Glass is still very rare and for that reason only a few people--mostly those in the tech field--are enjoying the novel experience it provides; the Google Glass Diaries project is trying to change that. It is a series of short documentaries telling the stories of those who would typically go unnoticed throughout their lifetime.

Created by filmmaker Josh Kim, the Google Glass Diaries will consist of 100 different stories of people in different professions around the world including a fortune teller and pay phone operator. The kicker is that it will be told through their own perspective. So far the Google Glass Diaries has been shot in Burma, Thailand, Indonesia and Japan, with South Korea next on the docket.
