Google Glass: Wrap Your Head Around This Thing That Wraps Around Your Head

Joshua Topolsky spends a day with two of Google Glass’ creators and goes up close and personal with the company’s visionary new computer.

Google Glass is a wearable device like glasses that is planned to work with or without prescription lenses and sunglasses.

Google Glass is set for release next week for $1,500 to “winners” of its #ifihadglass contest (that’s “If I had Glass,” as a hashtag, which is now CLOSED). Google Glass gets data through Wi-Fi, or it can tether via Bluetooth to an Android device or iPhone. Google Glass uses a smartphone’s 3G or 4G data plan (via tethering) while while out on the streets. There is no cellular radio in Glass, but it does have a GPS chip.

Be very careful ladies, this is how guys might use Google Glass.

Official Google Release Demo: Want to see how Glass actually feels? It’s surprisingly simple. Say “take a picture” to take a picture. Record what you see, hands free. Even share what you see, live.

Google’s Sergey Brin reveals video-capturing, augmented reality glasses at Google I/O in San Francisco. The Google Glass Explorer Edition will be available via pre-order for conference attendees, cost $1,500, and ship in early 2013.

We believe technology should work for you — to be there when you need it and get out of your way when you don’t.

A team within our Google[x] group started Project Glass to build this kind of technology, one that helps you explore and share your world, putting you back in the moment.

Follow along with us at http://g.co/projectglass as we share some of our ideas and stories. We’d love to hear yours, too. What would you like to see from Project Glass?
