What is Google Glass? how it works?
“Google Glass” redirects here. It is not to be confused with Google Goggles.
Project Glass is a research and development program by Google to develop an augmented reality head-mounted display (HMD). Project Glass products would display information insmartphone-like format hands-free and could interact with the Internet via natural language voice commands. The prototype’s functionality and minimalist appearance (aluminium strip with 2 nose pads) has been compared to Steve Mann‘s EyeTap.
The operating system software used in the glasses will be Google’s Android.
this what Wikipedia says about Google Glass
in future we can access all kind of Google apps with Google glass (gmail, map, Etc) we check the prices of goods and more details so in future we all must need a Google glass , what ever we talks Google glass recognize the voice and help us according to our needs. this device is cost about $1500. check the link below
this video gives us a better idea about it. Google glass does the works of smart phones that is cool. check the next video for Project Glass: Live Demo At Google I/O
I found this video says about how Google glasses works
Now we’ll see what are the cool thing in Google Glasses
- The glasses “basically do everything that a smartphone can do, but faster and without having to pull out your phone.”
- People will be able to tell when you’re not paying attention to them – your interactions with the glasses are noticeable.
- Even if it weren’t her job to test them, the Google employee says she’d “absolutely” still use them herself.
- You can scroll through Web pages by making a scrolling motion with your finger next to the headgear.
It could easily be overpriced. If you want to buy a very fancy pair of designer glasses, you could easily spend $300-$500. Google needs to aim right in this price range (and not much higher) to keep potential consumers interested.
How will we address theft? People steal phones. People steal tablets. It’s not hard to imagine someone walking up to you, grabbing the Google Glasses right off your face, and sprinting away. Will there be a “Find My Glasses” feature?
People might not want to “wear” their technology. People who already wear glasses will have less of a hurdle to clear here – they’re already accustomed to strapping eyewear to their faces every day. But a large portion of the population uses contact lenses or doesn’t have corrected vision. There will likely be a social speedbump to get over before people are wearing them in public without being self-conscious.
Recently Sergey Brin Ride the NYC Subway with Google Glass (in tech crunch)
its give good publicity to Google Glass
The tech giant is throwing two events to let developers have an “early look at Glass” and become familiar with the wearable platform’s software.
Google announced that it is throwing two hackathons for developers to get to know and work on its Google Glass project. The people allowed to participate in the events are those who agreed to fork over $1,500 for the developer edition of the wearable device.
“It’s the first opportunity for a group of developers to get together and develop for Glass,” Google told CNET.
The hackathons are slated to be two days long and take place in San Francisco on January 28 and 29 and in New York on February 1 and 2. Those developers attending the events will be able to have an “early look at Glass” and “have a device to use while on-site.”
so finally this Google glasses going to help our work so after that person gonna be smart people after wear this gadget 🙂
now take about this video it s just a funny video about Google Glass
