Google Glass: A wearable Computer
Google Glasses is a type of wearable computer created by the Google’s Project Glass which will look like a pair of normal eyeglasses. These futuristic glasses provide augmented reality for users by visually connecting them to an Android-run heads up display that offers many of the features of an Android smartphone and connects users to many of Google’s key cloud features, such as maps, calendar, Gmail, Google+ and Google Places with natural language voice command support as well as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.
Google Glass uses display technology instead to put data in front of your vision courtesy of a prism screen. This is designed to be easily seen without obstructing the view. The display is equivalent of a 25-inch high definition screen from eight feet away.
Google Glass has the ability to take photos and record 720p HD video with its 16 GB storage. While video is recording, a recording light is displayed above the eye, which is unnoticeable to the wearer.
A touchpad is also located on the side of Google Glass, allowing users to control the device by swiping through a timeline-like interface displayed on the screen and items can be selected by tapping.
