Google Glass is as futuristic a gadget we’ve seen in recent times. It’s limited in scope right
now, but the future, Google believes, is bright and the device itself is “incredibly compelling”.
Future scope and Conclusion
Wearable smart-devices represent the next stage in mobile computing and Google Glass
is the most hotly-anticipated gadget in that space. It is not an extension of your Android
smartphone or tablet, but is a whole new gadget in itself that can perform various day to
day tasks, without you ever moving your hands.
Google Glass is a technical masterpiece. It combines numerous functions and
features in a very small unit. In addition to phone and camera (photo, video), it offers
Internet connection, including GPS.
While the frames do not currently have lenses fitted to them, Google is considering
partnerships with sunglass retailers such as Ray-Ban or Warby Parker, and may also open
retail stores to allow customers to try on the device. The Explorer Edition cannot be used by
people who wear prescription glasses, but Google has confirmed that Glass will eventually
work with frames and lenses that match the wearer's prescription; the glasses will be modular
and therefore possibly attachable to normal prescription glasses
