Google reveals Glass technical specifications


Here we go wearable computer addicts, Google has just revealed the specs of its "Holy Grail" (Glass project) and they look just awesome. According to the official report, Project Glass features a 640 x 360 pixel display that Google says is the "equivalent of a 25-inch high definition screen from eight feet away," a 5-megapixel camera capable of recording 720p video and audio that comes via a bone conduction transducer!

In addition the Glass you'll probably buy in a couple of months (if you can afford it) will have 16GB of flash storage on-board, with 12GB of them actually usable, and it will sync with "Google cloud storage" — presumably Google Drive. Glass will also feature fully adjustable nose pads (with extra pads in two sizes), so that it will be able to "fit any face", at least according to Google officials.

The battery life of Glass looks a little discouraging at first, since it will be able to last up to "one full day of typical use", that is unless you use video recording feature all the time, something that will reduce the battery life even more. Google laso urges us to use the included USB cable for charging the device, instead of the also included micro USB cable, for (we quote) a "long and prosperous" life. You won't have any problem connecting Google Glass to the network, since it supports 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and is compatible with "any Bluetooth-capable phone" as we were informed.

If you want to find out when you can buy them then... join us as we also try to find a possible launch date. From what we already know all who have pre-ordered Google Glass Explorer Edition during last year's Google I/O event will be receiving them soon. For the rest if us we can expect the first products to be available by the end of the year at a price around 500$. So.... are you saving money already?
