Google Glass and its Features
Google glass is popular by its features. So, you may ask, How does Google glass differ from the others? Here is the answer.
This Google glass was developed by Google X Lab and manufactured by Foxconn. It is also known as project glass. It is wearable technology with an optical head-mounted display (OHMD). The envisioned purpose of Google glass would be the hands-free display of information currently available to most smartphone users.
It gives a stylish and classy look. Its dimensions are 5.25 inches at its widest point and 8 inches at its longest point. The headband is made of titanium, and it’s durable as it stretches from ear to ear. The glass sides are covered by plastic casing that hides Glass’ key components and gives an overall clean look.
The attention grasping specialty is an adjacent cube-shaped glass prism above the right eye. It has an acceptable 640 x 360 resolution and hangs just out of the way of the wearer’s line of sight. The glass is lightweight and soon to be available in 5 color options (Tangerine, charcoal, shale, cotton, and sky).
How it attracts people by its feature:
I know everyone is very curious to know about its feature…
Google Glass is very hard to invent but so easy to use. They developed this based on human needs and expectations. Whatever we may think impossible, it may be possible by this Google glass.
Interesting things to know:
The tiny look gives an enormous feature:
It’s astonishing how the developing team can compress all of its features into a tiny ‘computer-supported on a lightweight yet strong frame.
Google glass is packed with speakers, a camera, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, a microphone, a touchpad, and a gyroscope that detects head tilts. Then there’s a tiny screen the size of your finger that shows you all the information you need at your fingertips.
How it works by command:
A more interesting thing in Google glass is voice input. The built-in microphone combined with Google now connects you directly to the search engine.
You can give the command by tilting your head.
For example, you can activate Google by saying “Okay Glass” and then sending a command or question.
You can also take a picture or record a video by saying the command.
A touchpad is placed on the right side, which helps you get menus; tapping registers your section.
The inbuilt factor of the GPS chip will help you navigate with the help of Google maps. This will take away to look down at your smartphone, and it will be more helpful on your driving, when you are in a crowded place or when you are hiking through the countryside.
Live Information Connector:
Google glass uses to give live information about anything you want. It may like sports, medical help, TV shows, travel details, etc.
It could provide information about programs we are watching on TV such as the program title, stats about the actor, latest team and player news, scores, etc.
It could help you on your travel; Google cards also show you your boarding pass, next appointment, hotel or restaurant reservation, and reminders for important birthdays and events in your calendar.
Balance with the locals:
If you are traveling and visiting the places where you don’t speak the local language? What do you get to feel in that situation?
Google Glass has a feature that helps you translate your questions and their answers on the spot.
You can get information about the place like fun facts, tasty restaurant, accommodation, best drinking spots, and access to the local secrets when you are still there.
Dependency with Wi-Fi and mobile connectivity:
Apart from the GPS chip inside, Google glass is dependent on Wi-Fi and mobile connectivity to deliver its features.
When it is paired up with your smart device, it can show social network notifications and let you communicate via the same channels.
