While the device still seems to be under heavy development, Here’s what we know about the hardware:
- A small display above the field of vision
- Camera, Processor, storage
- microphone, small speaker, gyro, compass, and accelerometers
- lightweight design (less than some sunglasses)
In addition to the hardware, Google made a huge deal of highlighting the ways the device will be used. The presentation included skydivers, cyclists and rappellers all wearing the glasses while streaming live into a Google+ Hangout. Obviously this isn’t the most likely use case, but they did show people using the device pretty seamlessly in their everyday lives.
We’ll have video later, but for now know that Google is heavily involved in developing this concept into a consumer device.
Developers can pre-order the device for delivery next year at a cost of $1500, but only I/O attendees need apply.
