Want to experience the look and feel of the Google Glass OS on your Android device? Then you’ll want to read this.

Say “OK, Glass” to give a command.
No matter how you view Google Glass, you can’t help but be a little curious about how it all works. What is the user-interface (UI) like? How do you navigate from app to app, from page to page? Thanks to this post in the Glass Explorers Google+ page, I found a way for Android users to run what amounts to the Google Glass OS on their Android devices.

It seems some developers took the system dump of the Glass OS and repackaged the critical parts of the OS as APK files. If you’re unaware, APK is the file format for all Android apps. After installing three APK files, you’ll have a new launcher on your device called Glass Home.

Once you launch Glass Home, you’ll see the same UI Glass users see, and you’re even able to give the “OK, Glass” command to wake the app and start giving voice commands.

In my testing I was able to Google random stuff, including images of alpacas, and the results were either displayed (in the case of images) or read back to me (non-image queries). I was also able to take a photo, but there’s nothing that can be done with it after it’s been snapped. I didn’t have any luck when it came to getting directions (this feature needs touch-pad interaction to proceed past the warning) or placing any calls, as I don’t have an official Glass account to add contacts to.
