The media and social buzz surrounding Google Glass
has reached a fever pitch after Google recently released a video on YouTube showcasing its capabilities
Glass is one of Google’s newest creations about to make its way into the mainstream. The glasses are essentially a heads-up display running the Android operating system. Users will use voice commands to operate the device, which will be capable of performing the same functions
as today’s Android smartphones. Among other features, the device will record video (or stream it live), take pictures, and provide spoken/visual directions. Like Android smartphones, the device can automatically and instantaneously back up and share data with Google Drive
, Google’s cloud storage option for Android.
