Google is today rolling out its Field Trip app, previously available only on Android and iOS, to those lucky enough to be part of its Google Glass explorers program. While the Google Glassware version of the app appears to offer a slightly stripped down version of the virtual tour guide experience, the hands-free experience with Glass seems to be a natural fit for Field Trip. John Hanke, who is in charge of the Niantic Labs project at Google told Cnet that Field Trip was actually “conceived with Glass in mind, but Glass wasn’t ready.” 

Much like it does on Android and iOS, the Field Trip Glassware will offer users suggestions on destinations to explore and pop up facts about locations you happen to encounter. The video above that Google released today pretty much speakers for itself.

Google Glass users can try out Field Trip through the fieldtripper.com/glass website.
