Zombies, Livestream, and Shazam: Meet Google Glass' Newest Apps

With Google Glass still being in its Explorer phase, there hasn't been a whole lot of diversity as far as its app (or "Glassware") selection is concerned. But to kick off I/O, Google has just announced a whole slew of new apps you can slap onto your face computer.

The most notable (and mildly disconcerting) addition is Livestream, which will let you broadcast exactly what you're seeing, as you're seeing it.

But one of the best uses of Glass we're seeing here is in Star Chart, a stargazing app. Because unlike similar smartphone apps, you can see straight through your screen, letting you see the actual overlay on the starts themselves.
