Odds are you don't yet have access to Google Glass yet, but the MyGlass app should be quite robust by the time you can buy Google's face-computer. A new update to MyGlass allows you to control the Glass UI from the screencast experience on your phone or tablet.

A screencast on Google Glass is a way to stream the Glass interface in real time to a regular Android device. It's a handy way to show people what's going on in Glass without sticking it on their heads. With this update, taps and swipes on the regular Android device will be able to manipulate the Glass UI remotely.

The update also includes miscellaneous bug fixes, but the screencast enhancement is the headliner. This is probably another staged rollout, so be patient, intrepid Glass Explorers.

    Good thats quite the improvement. Among people you don't always want to scratch your temple or talk to your self. One more improvement I would like to see is the ability to use the phones camera. Lets say you want to have a hangout and would like the other person to see you. Seems like glass are shapeing up :) Now google where's my glass?

    This will be great for demos (which is most likely the intended purpose). It can be challenging to bring someone up to speed on the navigation of Glass in a 1 minute demo - having them put it on and walking them through the UI will make my demos a lot easier and more fun!
