Google Glass, The world before your eyes

google glassGoogle Glass. The coolest thing I think I have seen in a long time. You will be able to do everything hands free. You wear it like a pair of glasses but there is not actually any glass in front of your eye You have a small screen (viewable via a mirrored glass block) above and to the right of the wearer’s right eye. Due to this the point-of-view images that show a large action window in the center of the field of view are a little misleading. Google launched their website for google glass today and it is a true example of a picture (or video) being worth a thousand words http://www.google.com/glass/start/

To activate Google Glass you simply say, “OK Glass” and once engaged, Glass is capable of taking photos, recording videos, looking up answers on Google, showing reminders (such as for a flight) and sharing whatever you’re looking at — either via messaging or through a Google+ Hangout.

Once it becomes commercially available it cost around $1,500 plus tax.
