The Awesome Google Glass

Google Glasses is Google’s take at wearable computing. Like in various science fiction movies.
Google Glasses consist of a frame made almost like that of a normal spectacle but is a lot more technical. A screen on the glasses that will display an interface from where you’ll be able to carry out various functions. This video will help you know more about the interface and how the whole thing works.


Check below video to have an idea of the capabilities of Google Glasses

The hardware and connectivity
The right side of the frame boasts a touchpad. The part of the glass behind your ears is where the battery is placed. The front part has a camera but more importantly a small, transparent screen which acts like a display.
Inside the frame, there’s a CPU, RAM, a mic and a speaker. The glasses will have motion sensors. They will most-probably support 3G and 4G connections and also GPS. They’ll be Wi-Fi and Bluetooth compatible with Android smartphones.

How do they work and what can they do?
The OS running on the glasses will be Android.
The Glasses will allow you to make voice and video calls, plan routes, know about the places in your surroundings, play music, taking photos (and sharing them through G+), remind you of your time-table & about the weather, send messages and a lot more.

Google co-founder Sergery Brin said that he ‘expects’ the glasses to be available some time next year but wasn’t very sure when they’ll be released. So expect the glasses to be released in 2014.
This means you’ll have to wait for quite a time but the glasses are only in their developing stage now.
