Google+ embedded poss means you can embed Google Glass video posts

Public Google+ posts are embeddable, Google announced on Monday.
This is good. And like embeddable public Facebook posts, this also means that you can now embed Google Glass images posted on that service.
With Google+, now you can embed Google Glass videos as well.

This is very good.

This can have some positive ramifications for news coverage presentation on sites, which is very exciting. It is my aim to explore those possibilities.
There is a caveat, however, and that is that the embedded post is the preview of the video, in the form of an animated gif. Clicking on it takes the very large (!) video.

So it's not quite the whole enchilada, but it's still pretty good.

SO, in the meantime, embeds!
