  2. 2. Introduction to Google Glass • Google Glass is a wearable computer with an optical head-mounted display (OHMD) that is being developed by Google in the Project Glass research and development project • The intended purpose of Google Glass would be hands free displaying of information • Glass is being developed by Google X • It can communicate with the Internet via natural language voice commands • Powered by Android OS Page 2
  3. 3. How It Works Page 3
  4. 4. Technology Used • • • • • • • Wearable Computing Smart Clothing Augmented Reality Eye Tap Technology Ambient Intelligence 4G Technology Android Technology Page 4
  5. 5. • Wearable Computing • Worn by the bearer under , with or on top of clothing Developed for general or special purpose information technologies and media development Page 5
  6. 6. • Smart Clothing • In this technology new fabric is used having the capability of signaltransfer • Augmented Reality • Augmented reality (AR) is cutting-edge technology that allows for a digitally enhanced view of the real world • Live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data Page 6
