Google's first keynote of I/O 2012 proved to be a big one earlier this week, introducing new software updates and hardware. The biggest news was the company's Nexus 7 tablet, a low-cost 7-inch Android Jelly Bean device that goes head-to-head with Amazon's Kindle Fire. Google also announced its Nexus Q device at the event, a cloud-based audio and video streaming appliance designed to pull media from Google's Play Store and YouTube.

Asides from the hardware, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean got its official debut along with a new Google Now service that works by using your search history, calendar, and location to make search more relevant. The service includes notifications to make travel a lot easier. Chrome for Android went final during day one of I/O 2012 too, now available for Android 4.0 devices. The highlight of the keynote was undoubtedly Google's Project Glass demo. Sergey Brin set the stage for some crazy skydiving and bike jumps in a stunt to demonstrate how the company's glasses can capture and stream live video and images.

It was an impressive display that rounded off the keynote before attendees learned that they'd receive a white edition Nexus 7, Nexus Q streamer, and Galaxy Nexus phone. We won't spoilt all of it for you though, so check out the keynote below in its two-hour entirety.
