What is Google Glass?
Google Glass is a wearable computer with an optical hand-mounted display(OHMD).FEATURESTouchpad To control the device by swiping through a timeline- like interface displayed on the screen.
Camera Ability to take photos and record 720p HD video. Display The Explorer version of Google Glass uses aLiquid Crystal on Silicon(LCoS), field-sequential color, LED illuminated display.
Powered by OMAP4430
1.2 GHz dual core processor16 GB of SandDisk Flash
DRAM chip, RF Devices GPS and Bluetooth/WiFi module Working Principle
ADC translates the analog waves (voice) into digital data by sampling the sound.Eye Tap Technology Eye Tapis a device that is worn in front of theeyethat acts as acamera to record the scene available to the eye as well as a display.
Ambient IntelligenceElectronic environments that are sensitive and responsive to the presence of people.Devices work in concert to support people in carrying out their everyday life activities.The technology disappears into our surroundings until only the user interface remains perceivable by users.
Smart Grid TechnologySmart gridis anelectrical gridthat usesinformation and communications technologiesto gather and act on information about the behaviors of suppliers and consumers, in an automated fashion. It improves the efficiency, reliability, economics, and sustainability of the production and distribution of electricity.
ANDROID VersionAndroidis aLinux-basedoperatingfor mobile devices such assmart phonesandtablet computers, developed byGooglein conjunction with theOpen handset Alliance.
Augmented RealityAugmented reality is a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment.Real-world elements areaugmentedbycomputer generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.
Pros Easy to wear and use.Sensitive and responsive to the presence of people.Fast access of maps, documents, videos, chats and much more.A new trend for fashion lovers together being an innovative technology.A spectacle based computer to reside directly on your eyes rather than in your pouch or pocket.A useful technology for all kinds of handicapped/disabled people.
ConsCan be easily broken or damaged. Users will have a tough time taking care of it.It may lead to accidents while driving, eyestrain or visual confusion.The resource for running these glasses is still unknown. Will there be a battery or it will run using solar energy?Privacy of people may breach with nwglasses.Can be used only in metro cities.
Future Scopes Google Glass is as futuristic agadgetweve seen in recent times. It has an enormous range of scope in the years to come, Google believes, is bright and the device itself is incredibly compelling. Google is trying their best to push the Project Glass through the FCC this year. Reports show that Google is trying to get the approval by the FCC this year but there are already several hundred glasses made for testing internally.
CONCLUSION Google glasses are basically wearable computers that use the evolving familiar technologies bringing together the sophistication and ease of communication and information access not only for the privileged general masses but even for the physically challenged section of the society those who are at most instances unable to actually operate general electronic devices like the palmtops mobile phones and etcetera.
