Innovation and Google both are parallel to each other. Google always comes up with a new and an innovative idea and Google Glass is in one of them. It can be called Project Glass of Google. It is a head-mounted display device which is used for audio, video chatting, email, GPS and weather report. It can be run through an app called glassware which is optimized for this device because it is an Android operating system. Users can control this device through voice command.
Amazing Sleek Design: It is commendable that how the team has managed to inbuilt all the features in such a sleek and thin design and successfully able to make it computer supported and light weight. It has a very flexible design which makes it handy, comfortable and unbreakable. This Google Glass is inbuilt with WI-FI, Bluetooth, speaker, camera, microphone and a touch pad. When you slide the touchpad onwards it will show you the past events just like a normal smartphone and when you slide it backward it will show you the present events. It can be easily adjusted on any one’s face and look like a casual eyewear.
