Google Glass aka project glass is the first wearable computer which is developed by Google, the largest web company out there. Generally, people buy laptop, computer and tablet, mobile which are very difficult to wear when people could buy a wearable friend aka wearable computer or Google Glass. When the project glass was officially revealed the internet got flooded with Google Glass Reviews and this time Android’s Creed is representing their views about this ground breaking technology through this post. Also we have mentioned what is Google glasses price and how you can get one.
Project Glass is being industrialized since past one and half year and this is good news that Google Glass is going to launch in the market in upcoming year for regular consumers. But you can test the developer version of Google Glass by today since it has already been unveiled few months back.
What is Google Glass?
Google Glass is not a prescribed glass that could be wearable for normal guy but it will be revealed like prescribed glass. To make that successful, Google is going to make partnership with few popular glass companies i.e. Ray-ban. This means, future eye specialists could suggest someone to use Google Glass instead of old normal glass to protect his/her eye.
On the other end, Google Glass is a wearable computer. You know that this is much tough to wear a phone using case or hand bands but it will become easier with Google Glass.
Several things like checking Twitter, manage to-do list etc. are default features of this glass. Moreover, Google Glass will run on Android ICS (~4.0).

Tech Specification of Google Glass:
Google Glass has been made based on Android operating system with Optical Head Mounted Display. You can make use of this by your voice or microphone. There are two kinds of sensor i.e. Proximity Sensor and Light Sensor and both of them are significant part. The screen is similar to 640x360px.
I love Google Glass because it has hands-free camera for capturing photos and recording videos as well. It has 5 MP camera which could capture HD pictures and record HD video (720p). You shouldn’t have any problem in terms of low memory since it provides 12GB of space for usage and 1GB of RAM which will make your Glass superfast.
On the other hand, it has Lithium Polymer battery with dual-core Open Multimedia Applications Platform (OMAP) 4430 processor. If you are thinking about it’s connectivity, I would like to say that it has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and microUSB.
After reading all aforementioned specification, anyone would like to know about the app support. Actually, it supports most of the popular application. In fact, it has some in-built apps too. Google search, Text-Messaging, Twitter were in-built applications of this Google Glass in its initial days. But now famous sites are making their own apps which will be supported by Google Glass. Meanwhile Facebook, Evernote, Tumblr, CNN has settled their own apps and I am pretty sure that you will get all of them as in-built apps of Google Glass when you will buy that.
The most interesting news is that Google Glass will get an app store but it is not confirmed whether that will be linked with Google Play or not.

- There is an app on Google Play which lets you access your glass using Android device. My Google Glass has got an update which will help you to take pictures and record videos by touching, swiping or tapping your phone.
- You know that Mercedes-Benz is a famous company which makes high-rated luxury cars and trucks. They are going to integrate Google Glass in their car so that they can give riders a better experience.
If you are thinking to try something new aka wearable computer, then there is no alternative to Google Glass. If you ask what is the Google glass price then you should consider that it might cost $700-$1k for consumers. (Better than getting an iPhone)
