Transcript of Google Glasses Presentation

What You Need to Know... Google Glass I already wear glasses.
Will Google Glasses work for me? What is Google Glass? What Can Google Glass Do? Google Glass is an attempt to free data from desktop computers and portable devices like phones and tablets, and place it right in front of your eyes.

Essentially, Google Glass is a camera, display, touchpad, battery and microphone built into spectacle frames so that you can perch a display in your field of vision, film, take pictures, search and translate on the go. - Google's own list of features.
-As well as photos and film - which require no explanation you can use the Google hangout software to video conference with your friends and show them what you're looking at.
-You'll also be able to use Google Maps to get directions, although with GPS absent from the spec list, you'll need to tether Glass to your phone.
-The ability to translate the words being spoken to you into your own language on the display. Obviously you'll need a WiFi connection or a hefty data plan.
Third parties are also already developing some rather cool/scary apps for Google Glass, including one that allows you to identify your friends in a crowd, and another that allows you to dictate an email. What are the Google Glass
specifications? -As well as a mooted 640 x 360 display, the built-in camera is a 5MP snapper that can film at 720p.
-Battery life is apparently a day, although that's with the usual "typical use" caveat, which probably excludes a lot of videoing.
There's 16GB of flash memory built into the device, although only 12GB will be available for user storage. The device will sync to your Google Drive in the cloud
-Bluetooth and WiFi will be built in, but no GPS chip - so the Glass will probably work best alongside an Android phone, although you can pair with any Bluetooth enabled phone. Yes - Google is already working on designer versions which will include prescription lenses. How Much Will Google Glass Cost? The Google Glass Explorer (the developer version being sent out now) costs $1,500 - around £985 or AU$1,449.
The consumer versions, which are expected to arrive by the end of 2013, are expected to be a little cheaper, although any actual prices remain speculative. They are unlikely to be super-cheap - but Google's success with the Nexus 7 tablet may prompt the company to subsidies some of the cost.
