Google Reveals Glass Specs
Google has finally unwrapped Google Glass. Full specs for Glass hardware has now been posted by Google. Its explorer edition will be available for $ 15,00.
The big display is the highlight of the device that “is the equivalent of a 25 inch high-definition screen from eight feet away”.
The first version of Glass will also feature a 5 megapixel camera, 16GB of Flash storage of which 12GB will be usable (and synced with Google’s cloud storage service), wi-fi standard 802.11b/g and Bluetooth. The company says the device should have enough battery power to last a full day “of typical use,” but it also warns that features like Hangouts and video recordings are more battery intensive.
The coolest feature, however, is probably the bone conduction transducer, which will transmit sound from Glass to the inner ear through the bones of the wearer’s skull. Thanks to this, users won’t have to use a regular headphone to use Glass.
