Project Glass-Next big thing in tech world.


                We people are always hungry for change in the way we live, we were not satisfied with telephone so we invented mobile, we were not satisfied with cycle hence we invented bikes and scooter. our only aim here was to make that particular product better and reduce human effort. so one of our finest company 'GOOGLE' was not happy with normal eye wears so they came up with something new.and interesting. basically we can say that they have made new category itself for this product. As apple made new category of products with invention of iPhone, Google is trying to do the same here. Project glass is basically an eye wear having an android operating system, it can basically display information in a smart phone type display and main thing is it can interact with internet. it is basically a eye wear which can do lot of thing.
glass on it  looks like only the headband of a pair of glasses — the part that hooks on your ears and lies along your eyebrow line — with a small, transparent block positioned above and to the right of your right eye.

   According to Wikipedia project glass can be described as--   Project Glass is a research and development program by Google to develop an augmented reality head-mounted display (HMD).Project Glass products would display information in smartphone-like format hands-free and could interact with the Internet via natural language voice commands.
           This project is still in development process so just developers are being provided with it for $1,500.

So you people would be thinking what use this project glass or google glass will to us?

           Google is not planning to release it before 2014. this glass are lot more then normal eye wears it can click photos, tell you current temperature, time, Google has proposed icons for things like taking a picture, recording video, making a phone call, navigating on Google Maps, checking your calendar, surf net (Google said it will have cellular radio later through which it can get online, at present it uses your phone's wireless network to connect online). Inside the right earpiece that is, the horizontal support that goes over your ear Google has packed memory, a processor, a camera, speaker and microphone, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi antennas, accelerometer, gyroscope, compass and a battery. All inside the earpiece. Glass is designed for two primary purposes sharing and instant access to information  hands-free, without having to pull anything out of your pocket. Google has also shown that you can use speech recognition to control Glass. You say “O.K., Glass” to call up the menu.

This is wonderful project and a realistic one if it is priced correctly. Google co founder SERGEY BRIN is seen with this glasses in almost every tech events.we can be pretty sure that this invention is going to be huge step in making us lazy, as even removing your mobile from your pocket will be of no use as it will fo all task of mobile phones. only thing Google need to do is to keep price of these glasses down, and it will be the next big thing in tech world.
