Everything You Need to Know About Google Glass


IGN – 

Funny looking? Sure. But Glass may just be a glimpse of things to come.

Google Glass means a lot of different things to many people. For some, the futuristic-looking headwear is the unavoidable next step for personal computing; a look into how technology will someday seamlessly integrate into our daily lives. And for others, Google Glass may appear like a concept without practical application, another idea like the Segway. Sure, wearing a computer on your face sounds cool, but who wants to wear it in public?

No matter which side of the issue you hold as truth, there’s no denying Google Glass has the chance to change the way the world thinks about communication. But what exactly is Google Glass? What do we know so far, and where might that aluminum strip and nose-bridge take us?

What’s Inside Google Glass?

Essentially, Glass’ main priority is to move the interactions we’ve grown accustom to with our smartphones and tablets to the hands-free convenience of a pair of glasses. An Android-powered head-mounted display resides just above the right eye, producing a small heads-up display image with information like travel directions and video messaging, all accessible by Siri-like voice commands. A 720p camera is embedded in the front of the device, allowing the wearer to take pictures or perhaps even stream live video.
