SAN FRANCISCO, USA – Just like the glasses worn by Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible that provided Ethan Hunt with the mission brief, Google’s Project Glass is eyewear with smart functions.
The glasses have a display that will show relevant information to the user during their daily activities. Additionally, it will also feature a camera that will be able capture pictures and record videos.
Project Glass will also include sensors such as an accelerometer, compass and gyroscope, besides FM radio.
The Google Glass device is not yet available commercially, and consumers will have to wait until late 2013 or even 2014 to wear them, as they will first be available to developers as an Explorer Edition at the beginning of 2013 so they can code compatible apps.
The Google Glass Explorer Edition can be pre-ordered by developers at the Google I/O conference for $1 500.
