Google Glass

Google Glass is an attempt to free data from desktop computers and portable devices like phones and tablets, and place it right in front of the eyes of the viewer.

Google Glass is a camera, display, touchpad, battery and microphone built into spectacle frames so that a display is perched in the wearer’s field of vision, allowing him to film, take pictures, search and translate on the go.

The product uses display technology to put information in the upper right corner of view, courtesy of a prism screen, without obstructing vision. Data is controlled with a microphone and touchpad on one arm of the frame so that users can select what to do with a brief gesture or by talking to the device. There is 16GB of flash memory built into the device, with 12GB available for user storage. The device syncs to Google Drive, and Bluetooth and WiFi are built in.

Google Glass Explorer, the developer version sent out beginning in April of 2013, costs $1,500.
