What Exactly Is Google Glass?
Google Glass looks like a pair of eyeglasses, but the lenses are an interactive, smartphone-like display with natural language voice command support as well as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. Glass is powered by an Android mobile operating system and provides access to Google apps (such as Gmail, GPS-powered Google maps, and Google+) and third-party developer apps (New York Times, CNN, Evernote, and many more). Users control Glass from a touchpad on the side that lets them swipe through a timeline-like interface on the screen, or through an array of voice commands.
Glass also has a camera that can take photos and record 720p HD video, as well as stream video to a Google Hangout or an app such as Livesteam.
