It started off like any other morning; a stretch, a yawn, a coffee with a friend - but the day ends with something shocking.

This video takes us through a day in the life of a woman and her Google glasses.

Using the state-of-the-art technology to get directions, listen to some music, and look up a book she wants to read, we are led through a pretty tranquil few hours - until we're greeted by her partner in the kitchen.

The music goes off; the glasses are removed; and the young woman is punched and dragged across the floor by her boyfriend. "Despite all our progress, women still see this everyday," read the words flashed across the screen.

The shocking video which has gone viral, is stark reminder of what goes on behind closed doors and was designed by a team of London creatives to raise awareness about domestic abuse.
