What does your lazy Sunday involve? For me, it's usually yoga, brunch, and suffering through a Buffalo Bills loss.

Filmmaker Tu Uthaisri's low-key weekend usually includes a trip for coffee and some fancy brunch dish as well. Uthaisri, who has an MFA in design and technology from Parsons the New School for Design and works in Google's New York Creative Lab, decided to take his outing a step further one Sunday. Using Google Glass, the filmmaker shot 1,000 photos over a four-day period to create "Catch: A Handimation Through Glass."

Uthaisri and a team of 14 others joined forces to document what the Thailand-born producer calls "a little surreal moment" in New York City. The result, "Catch," is entirely stop-motion, documenting the appearance, disappearance, and reappearance of a phone number written on a hand in red marker. With a jazz score by Jeremy Turner, the two-and-a-half-minute video shows various animations moving in and out of a real-life setting through a first-person view.

YouTube commenters seem mostly impressed, noting how entertaining and creative they find the video. Some can't believe that the piece was produced entirely with Glass.

Does this video change your perception of Google Glass? Let us know in the comments section.
