Google Glass


‘Project Glass’ is a research and development program by Google to develop an augmented reality head-mounted display (HMD) named Google Glass. Project Glass product displays information in a smart phone-like format hands-free, and can interact with the Internet via natural language voice commands. It was started about three years ago by an engineer named Babak Parviz who was an electrical engineer as a part of Google’s X Lab initiative.

Google is looking ambitious to bring its Google Glass wearable computer to market much faster than many likely anticipated, according to the Verge. Google has revealed that it hopes to have the commercial version of Glass available for sale to ordinary consumers by the end of 2013. The cost is expected to be under $1,500. This is the most clear Google has been yet about its public release schedule for the headset-mounted computing device. Earlier in June 2012, Google co-founder Sergey Brin suggested that a rough timeline for developer and consumer availability would put the device in the hands of the general public in 2014.
This time, a Google official has said directly that the company is targeting an end of year release date and the credibility of the source cannot be debated. Google’s recent release to a broader audience beyond just developers via an application process indicates things might be moving quicker than the company previously expected.
The Verge has also mentioned that, it is compatible with i-Phone devices as well as Android handsets. They also were convinced that this is something that Google will eventually be able to turn into a device with mass-market appeal.
