Introduced at the Google I/O conference in San Francisco, Wednesday, June 27, 2012, Google is making prototypes of the device, known as Project Glass, available to test. They can only be purchased – for $1,500 – at the conference this week, for delivery early next year.
The Salt Lake Tribune:
If you’re annoyed by people who text or talk on the phone instead of paying attention to the world around them, just wait until Google Glass hits the streets.
You may have heard of the new piece of hardware that you wear like glasses that will be coming in 2014. But these aren’t an ordinary pair of shades. Google Glass is a wearable computer that has a small viewing screen for the right eye, a video camera, microphone, small speaker, motion sensors and a number of processors. Google Glass is meant to be an instant window to your virtual world. The monitor covers only part of your vision so you can still see the real world in front of you. But while wearing them, you will be able to video conference with others on Google+, read your email on the tiny monitor, get tweets and more.
Alert reader Garriel points out that Google already has Google Glass in it’s Play Stores.
