  3. 3. Google-Glass is a research and development program by Google to develop an Augmented Reality (AR) Head Mounted Display (HMD). The intended purpose of Project Glass products would be the hands-free displaying of information currently available to most smart phones users, and allowing for interaction with the Internet via natural language voice commands. Introduction
  4. 4. Overview of Google Glass  The glasses are not being designed to be worn constantly — although Google engineers expect some users will wear them a lot — but will be more like smart phones, used when needed, with the lenses serving as a kind of see-through computer monitor.  Several people who have seen the glasses, but who are not allowed to speak publicly about them, said that the location information was a major feature of the glasses. Through the built- in camera on the glasses, Google will be able to stream images to its rack computers and return augmented reality information to the person wearing them. For instance, a person looking at a landmark could see detailed historical information and comments about it left by friends. If facial recognition software becomes accurate enough, the glasses could remind a wearer of when and how he met the vaguely familiar person standing in front of him at a party. They might also be used for virtual reality games that use the real world as the playground.
  5. 5. Features •Tiny & Powerful •Google Glass’ Voice Input •Take Photos & Videos •Always On Call •Get Location On-The-Go •Weather & Travel Alerts •Easy Sharing
  6. 6. Tiny & Powerful It’s amazing how the Project Glass team has managed to squeeze all of its features into a tiny ‘computer’ supported on a lightweight yet strong frame.
  7. 7. Google Glass is packed with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, speakers, a camera, microphone, touchpad and possibly a Gyroscope that detects head-tilts. Then there’s the main piece, a tiny screen the size of your finger, that shows you all the information you need at your finger tips.
  8. 8. Google Glass’ Voice Input  Well, all that hardware is put to good use: Google Glass has voice input, which makes everything a lot more interesting. The built-in microphone combined with Google Now connects you directly to the search engine. You activate Google Now by saying "Okay Glass" then send a command or question. Tilting your head up does the same thing.
  9. 9. Google Glass users can now live in the moment, and keep that memory in pictures or videos. No more foraging around for a camera, tuning the settings of your photo apps, and letting the moment go by without a single snap. You can take a photo or record a video, all by just saying the command for it – more on that, later. On the right, is a touchpad where you can swipe through, to get to menus; tapping, registers your selection. Just say, "Take a Photo" and your view at the moment is captured, hands-free. Take Photos & Videos
  10. 10.  Other than photos, you can do the same with videos, which spells opportunities for extreme sports, real-life tutorials and more. Of course, picture quality coming from a device this small would not be comparable to a DSLR camera, but oftentimes, you’d rather not lose out on the moment.
  11. 11. Always On Call  With Glass being able to record videos, it can also act as a webcam with the data connection from your home or smartphone. You can use Google Hangout for a group conference, and still do what you need to do without being confined to a desk.  The powerful voice input feature also allows you to dictate text messages, attach videos and pictures alongwith and sending it via your mobile data connection, without having to remove your phone from your pocket.
  12. 12. Get Location On-The-Go  Since it’s built with a GPS chip, it has an Interior Map it’ll be able to help you navigate, with help from Google Maps. This will take away the need to look down at your smartphone and it will be especially handy when you are driving, when you’re walking through crowded streets or when you’re hiking through the countryside.
  13. 13. Weather & Travel Alerts  Live information that is shown to you would come from the predictive software of Google Now. On Android’s Jelly Bean, Google Now knows when you’re leaving your home for work and can warn you of bad traffic before you get stuck in it.
  14. 14.  You can also set your favourite sports team and it’ll give you the latest news, scores and updates from the team, whenever they play.  All those features are available on Android, but with Glass, you can skip checking your device and just get it shown to you as and when it happens, or as news feeds. Google Now cards also shows you your boarding pass, next appointment, hotel or restaurant reservations, reminders for important birthdays and events in your calendar.
  15. 15. Easy Sharing  Google Glass works not only with Android phones but also with the iPhone, according to this report. Apart from the GPS chip inside, Google Glass is dependent on the Wi-Fi or mobile connectivity to deliver its features. It is only fair game it if is available like any third-party accessory.  When paired up with your smart device, it can show social network notifications and let you communicate via the same channels as you would on the computer. This removes the need of looking at your smartphone constantly, giving you more time to concentrate on the task at hand.
  16. 16. How it works?  The device will probably communicate with mobile phones through Wi-Fi and display contents on the video screen as well as respond to the voice commands of the user.  Google put together a short video demonstrating the features and apps of Google glasses. It mainly concentrates on the social networking, navigation and communication.  The video camera senses the environment and recognizes the objects and people around. The whole working of the Google glasses depends upon the user voice commands itself.
  17. 17. The overall working of Google glasses
  18. 18. Technologies Used •Wearable computing •Ambient Intelligence •Smart clothing •Eye Tap technology •Smart Grid Technology •4G Technology •Android Technology •Augmented Reality
  19. 19. Wearable Computing  Worn by the bearer under, with or on top of clothing. Developed for general or special purpose information technologies and media development.
  20. 20. Ambient Intelligence  Electronic environments that are sensitive and responsive to the presence of people.  Devices work in concert to support people in carrying out their everyday life activities.  The technology disappears into our surroundings until only the user interface remains perceivable by users.
  21. 21. Ambient Intelligence Environments
  22. 22. Smart Clothing  It is a combination of new fabric technology and digital technology.  The clothing is made with new signal-transfer fabric technology installed with digital devices.
  23. 23. Eye Tap Technology  Eye Tap is a device that is worn in front of the eye that acts as a eye to record the scene available to the eye as well as a display.  Eye Tap intakes the world around it and augments the image the user sees allowing it to overlay computer- generated data over top of the normal world the user would perceive.
  24. 24. Smart Grid Technology  Smart grid is an electrical grid that uses information and communications technologies to gather and act on information about the behaviors of suppliers and consumers, in an automated fashion.  It improves the efficiency, reliability, economics, and sustainability of the production and distribution of electricity.
  25. 25. 4G Technology  4G is the fourth generation of cell phone mobile communication standards.  This system provides mobile ultra broadband Internet access with data rates of 300Mbps in mobility to 1Gbps while stationary.  The data speed can make the device run about its purpose.
  26. 26. Android Operating System  Android is a Linux-based operating for mobile devices such as smart phones and tablet computers, developed by Google in conjunction with the Open handset Alliance.  Android is open source and Google releases the code under the Apache License. This open source code and permissive licensing allows the software to be freely modified and distributed by device manufacturers, wireless carriers and enthusiast developers.
  27. 27. Augmented Reality  Augmented reality is a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment.  Real-world elements are augmented by generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.
  28. 28. DESIGN PERSPECTIVE Video Display:  Its features with the small video display that is used to display the pop up hands free information.
  29. 29. Camera:  It has a front facing video camera with which photos and videos can be taken in a glimpse.
  30. 30. Speaker:  Google glasses are designed to be hands free wearable device that can be used to make or receive calls too. So a speaker is also designed by the ear.
  31. 31. Button:  A single button on the side of the frame sophisticates the glasses to work with the physical touch input. It can be used in multi-purposeful ways and it acts according to the context.
  32. 32. Microphone:  A microphone is also put in, that can take the voice commands of the wearer of user. This microphone is also used for having telephonic communication.
  33. 33. ADVANTAGES & DISADVANTAGES Advantages:-  Easy to wear and use.  Sensitive and responsive to the presence of people.  Fast access of maps, documents, videos, chats and much more.  A new trend for fashion lovers together being an innovative technology.  A spectacle based computer to reside directly on your eyes rather than in your pouch or pocket.  A useful technology for all kinds of handicapped/disabled people.
  34. 34. Disadvantages:-  Can be easily broken or damaged. Users will have a tough time taking care of it.  It may lead to accidents while driving, eyestrain or visual confusion.  The resource for running these glasses is still unknown. Will there be a battery or it will run using solar energy?  Privacy of people may breach with new glasses.  Can be used only in metro cities.
  35. 35. Future Scope 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”. Google is trying their hardest to push the Project Glass through the FCC this year. Reports show that Google is trying to get the approval by the FCC this year but there are already several hundred glasses made for testing internally.
  36. 36. Future scope of Google Glasses
  37. 37. CONCLUSION  Google glasses are basically wearable computers that use the evolving familiar technologies that brings the sophistication and ease of communication and information access even for the physically challenged class of people those literally could not use general way of palmtops and mobiles.
