Google Glass is a wearable computer which gives us a way of using the outboard brain of the internet
while still being able to do other things. Glass was created, according to Google, to "be there when you
need it and get out of your way when you don't.“
Essentially, Google Glass is a wearable Android-powered computer built into spectacle frames so that
you can perch a display in your field of vision, film, take pictures, search and translate on the go as well
as run specially-designed apps. This is designed to be easily seen without obstructing your view.
Current versions of Glass offer a 640 x 360 display. display is "the equivalent of a 25-inch
high definition screen from eight feet away." There is a 5 megapixel camera built-in to the
frame that can also capture video at 720p resolution. There's 16GB of flash memory built
into the device, although only 12GB is currently available for user storage
Summarizing the statement:
Google Glass runs a version of Android,
so developers can easily create apps
that take advantage of its unique
display and input methods. The early
Google Glass apps provide a neat glimpse into the potential of the headset.
The frame will come with adjustable
Pads for comfort.
Google Glass comes in five different colors i.e. Charcoal, Tangerine, Shale,
Cotton and Sky.
Weight And Strength
Google Glasses are very lite in weight and are strong so that they don’t
break easily. Glass is designed to be lightweight and as unobtrusive as
possible. The frame will come with adjustable pads for comfort, and is
expected to be both light and extremely robust. It will also have a
touchpad along one arm for silent interaction.
They are quite simple as it is designed for wearing as a glass so if it was heavy
or designed in a difficult manner so it could have been a cause of headache
for the user’s to wear and use it easily. You can start a search with just saying
Glass responds to voice commands as well as taps and gestures on the
touch-sensitive bar that runs along the side of the frame. You just have to
simply say “Take a picture” and the glass will capture what you are
Just like photos, you can use a voice action to start video recording by
saying "ok glass, record a video.” You'll see a live view on your display of
your current recording and a time counter for your video recording.
Videos are 10 seconds in length by default. To continue recording, tap
your touchpad and select Extend video. To stop recording, tap the
touchpad and swipe to select Stop recording.
Google Glass has the ability to take photos and record 720p HD
video, which you can easily share with others.
You'll be able to use Google Maps to get directions although as there
is no built in GPS receiver you'll need to tether Glass to your
smartphone. Several third party developers have announced apps for
services including Ever note, Sketch and Path.
Message And Phone Calls.
Send messages to your contacts hands-free by saying "ok glass, send a
message to..." The voice action will bring up a list of the contacts you
set up on the MyGlass site or Android app. Say the name of the
recipient or select their name from the list using the touchpad, then
speak your message. If you've paired your mobile phone to Glass,
Glass acts as a Bluetooth headset for your phone and you'll be able to
place and receive phone calls through Glass.
Ask Question’s And Answer’s Without Asking
This innovative technology is so efficient that, the person using it can
simply ask questions and it answers. Sometimes it can tell
information according to your environment.
Translation of voice
Google has snapped up voice specialists DNNresearch whose voice
recognition tech could give Glass the ability to translate words being
spoken to you into your own language on the display. Obviously
you'll need a WiFi connection or a hefty data plan if you're in another
country, but it's certainly a neat trick if it works.
Google Glass was developed by Developers (US)
in February 2013. It will be used by consumers
in 2014. Research contained making
pictures, videos streaming to other locations
dictating operative log, having students watch
the procedures and tele-consultation through
Hangout. Angele documented his findings in
blogs, videos, pictures, on Twitter, and on
Google+ and is still ongoing.
It's important to note that there may be restrictions on when you
use Glass, both legal and social. Indeed
Obviously with any new technology there is the potential for
misuse - and Google Glass is perhaps a little problematic when it
comes to privacy
Google Glass is not yet commercially available but some of those
who signed up to the Google Glass Explorer program have been
able to purchase a developer edition for $1,500.
There was speculation that Glass may launch early, before the end
of 2013 but no announcement has been forthcoming from Google.
Google Glass is a innovative technology. Google
glass is a wearable computer that is in the form
of spectacles, programmers claim it to be
surprisingly simple. Along with this one can
capture photo, make video, share online, online
navigations, send a message, translate and
much more. The physical advantages of the
product is, it is strong, light, modular design
and different colors.
