Rumors about the Google Glass have been flying thick and fast in the market and now an engineer, Soumya Mohan, describes what the user interface of Google Glass looks like.

Mohan used the Google Glass at a tech talk organized at Stanford and spoke to Quora.com to describe how the user interface looks and works. Mohan indicated that currently the interface is rather crude and displays a short list menu with black background and words written in white, and suggested that the interface is "work in progress."

"After I wore the glasses and they were turned on, a small screen was visible on the top right corner. The first screen I saw was a list menu with black background and words written in white. As far as I can remember, some of the options in the menu were 'Click a picture', 'Shoot a video', and 'Voice call' noted Mohan.

Mohan also said that the screen of the Glass was fairly small and he could see only four to five items of the list on the screen at one time. Moving his head up and down also caused the list to scroll in vertically.

Mohan could also use speech recognition to command the Glass to perform any of the actions.

"The right part of the glass frame near my ear also functioned as a touchpad, I clicked a picture using the voice command. The screen automatically showed me the clicked picture just after I instructed the device to click it," added Mohan.

The current user interface of Google Glass may be basic, but it doesn't mean that the final version will also have limited functionality.

We have no news as to when the futuristic gadget will make its way to shelves, but Google Glass is definitely something to look out for in the near future.

Check out the video below that shows what the Google Glass user interface may look like.
