Google Glass is a wearable computing device. It brings a new form factor to the wide array of connected devices already in existence. It features a strange design with a glass prism that acts as the display. Smartphones & tablets have revolutionized the tech industry by capturing the market share which was once dominated by form factors such as desktop computers. Well, Google Glass is an extension of that ongoing paradigm change and a glimpse into the future. It also takes augmented reality to a new level while simplifying many of our day to day interactions with the smartphones.
Google has many faces. The craziest of them all is about Google X. Google X labs is the place where futuristic ideas like driverless cars take shape. It’s also the birthplace of Google Glass. The team behind the Glass project had been working on it from 2011. And early this year Google announced the “Glass Explorer Programme” and launched the “Explorer Edition” of Google Glass hardware. This is limited to selected few people around the world who will test the device and provide feedback to Google. The purpose? To come up with a better & improved consumer version. That’s right, the “Explorer edition” is not the final design of Google Glass.
