How Google Glass work?
What makes it work?
Google Glass is the attempt to make wearable
computing mainstream, and it's effectively a
smart pair of glasses with an integrated heads-
up display and a battery hidden inside the
The Glass camera seems to be of typical
Smartphone-level size and format. It is not
coaxially aligned with the wearer's eye.
Photos - 5 MP, videos - 720p
Prism projector, 640×360 pixels
(equivalent of a 25 in/64 cm screen from
8 ft/2.4 m away).
A touchpad is located on the side of
Google Glass, allowing users to control the
device by swiping through a timeline-like
interface displayed on the screen.
Google Glass use Bone conduction
transducer. Bone conduction is
the conduction of sound to the inner
ear through the bones of the skull.
Other than touchpad Google Glass use Voice
command through microphone,
accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer,
ambient light sensor, proximity sensor… as input.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean: The list of new
features the android system is used for Google
project glass. The new update of Android,
version 4.4 kitkat is also known to be used.
Google Glass contains the fundamental
bits of any computer, including a CPU,
sensors such as GPS, speakers, microphone
and battery, to which are added a tiny
projector and a prism that redirects the light
onto your retina.
Generally it uses voice recognition
technology to access the menu.
It seems Google has managed to get
Glass to listen you at all times.

Google is the first and most diverse voice
command. The ellipses (...) after the command

2. Take a picture:
Snapping images with Glass should be an
extremely rewarding and spontaneous experience
– after all you can snap images everywhere
3. Record a video
Recording a video is another great examples
where the hands-free nature of Google Glass
shines. What makes Glass different from most
head-mounted cameras though is its cellular
connectivity and ability to instantly share the
4. Get directions to...
With Google Maps in the corner of your
eye at all times you can easily navigate
yourself while driving, cycling, walking.
Again, having your display head-mounted and
your hands free is the greatest advantage to
To start using Google Glass, you tap the frame of the glasses
and you’re taken to the home screen.
You can make calls via Glass
From the demo videos that Google has uploaded on the
Web, Google Glasses can be used to make calls by simply
talking to the device. If you want to call a friend, simply say
"OK, glass, call my friend, Shan" and it initiates a call.
Take a picture
After you issue the order ‘OK Glass’, you can instruct the
glasses to do something specific by saying something like
‘take a picture’. That’s it.
Same goes with video. With Google Glass, you can record
what you see without moving a finger.
Share what you see
Now this is what we call serious sharing – actually sharing
what you see with your friends (it’s not clear at this early
stage whether Google Glass will be able to feed them a live
video stream, but this is inevitable).
Find your way
Lost? No problem, you have your very own super GPS
navigating device to guide you along in the right direction
Google Glass will able to read and translate any text you
see, which makes them an absolute boon for travelers. For
travelers, Google Glass will be a revolution, going a long way
to removing language barriers.
Your info butler
One of the key features of Google Glass is their awareness of
where you are and what you’re looking at, at all times. It
means they can anticipate your needs and flash up information
that’s going to be relevant to you.
Google Glass is strong and light for everyday use:
Glass is so light and inconspicuous that nobody will be
able to tell that you are interacting with a computer screen
You can't make Google Glass like Google:
If you like the sleek ornamental design of Glass and
looking to create your own set to sell, too bad because Google
has already patented the design and look. This will help
protect the technology and discourage people faking Glass.
Google Glass can let you know how fast you are driving
Glass is amazing not only in identifying your current
location but can also let you know how fast you are driving or
biking without disconnecting or disengaging from the physical

Thus we have overlook a new upcoming
device which is going to be released in market by the
end of 2014 and which will be revolutionary device
called as a Google project glass. This device will
change the meaning of a technology, this device will
change the medium of communication and will be
