Latest News Google Releases Tech Specs for Glass By Staff Wednesday, April 17, 2013 12:24 AM MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.—Google disclosed on Monday the technical details of Glass, its soon to be released wearable computer. According to the company’s website the high tech specs will feature a high resolution display that is the equivalent of a 25-inch high definition screen viewed from eight feet away. A built-in camera will be capable of capturing 5-megapixel images and video at a resolution of 720 pixels and will feature 12 GB of usable memory, synched with Google cloud storage for 16 GB of storage. Audio will be delivered via a bone conduction transducer, Google said. Glass will also feature Wifi connectivity, and can communicate with any Bluetooth-capable phone. A companion app, MyGlass, requires Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or higher. MyGlass enables GPS and SMS messaging. Glass will be powered by a battery that will carry a charge for one full day of typical use, although Google noted that some features, like Hangouts and video recording, are more battery intensive. A Micro USB cable and charger are included. Glass will also have adjustable nosepads and a durable frame that fits any face, according to Google. Extra nosepads in two sizes will be included with each pair of Glass. Yesterday at the D: Dive Into Mobile conference in New York City, Google’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt said that Google Explorers, the 2,000 or so people that have pre-ordered the Glass prototype, “will get Google Glass in the next few days.” Explorers will have to pay $1,500 for the wearable device.
