Now why go through all this hassle for a pair of four-eyes? Because devices like Google Glass, or “heads-up displays,” are the wave of our three-dimensional future. If you’ve ever played with Layar’s augmented reality browsing app, you know what we mean:
- Heads-up display – Like a smartphone, Google Glass displays information in a hands-free format, and it’s voice-activated so you can communicate with the internet via voice commands.
- Record your experience – Google Glass features a five-megapixel HD camera, with the ability to record 720p videos or capture images.
- Ins and outs – A 640×360 display, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 16GB storage, 682MB RAM, ambient light sensing, and tri-axial gyroscope, accelerometer and compass round out its bleeding-edge feature set.
- Interface — Naturally since we’re talking Google, it’s the Android operating system, and you control and manage Google Glass via an app called MyGlass.
Unfortunately, Google Glass is not yet widely available. They’re set aside for those interested in joining The Glass Explorer Program to help shape and contribute to the future of Google Glass. What are you waiting for?
