You’ll either love it or hate it. The Google Glass is an omniscient figure for anyone who regularly reads dystopian or science fiction. But it seems harmless enough to most people – doesn’t it?
This device is a piece of glass shaped into a prism which is able to project images on top of your existing vision. It’s operated by voice commands, a touchscreen, and head movements. It is attached to a headset not unlike a glasses frame with only a square glass positioned in front of one eye. It may look strange now, but Google has plans to add sunglass and prescription lenses into the mix.
Google Glass Technical Specifications.
Google has a longstanding relationship with Android. So it is no surprise that Google Glass is designed to support Android versions 4.0.4 and higher. It also features a display of 640 x 360 pixels and a 5-megapixel camera. The camera feature is capable of taking 720p video. Google Glass is both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capable and sports a whopping 16 gigabytes of storage, though only 12 gigabytes of storage space is free to use by consumers. It has a 682MB RAM processor and has a 3 axis gyroscope, accelerometer, and magnetometer. Google Glass features a bone conduction transducer, as well. Don’t worry, though. This only means that it is able to transfer sound to the inner ear by passing sound through the bones of the skull.
