About Google Glass

Google Glass (stylized simply as GLASS) is an augmented reality head-mounted display (HMD) being developed by Google in the Project Glass research and development project. Google Glass displays information in a smartphone-like format hands-free, and can interact with the Internet via natural language voice commands. The eyewear's functionality and minimalist appearance (aluminium strip with 2 nose pads) has been compared to Steve Mann's EyeTap, and uses Google's Android operating system. Glass is being developed by Google X Lab, which has worked on other futuristic technologies such as driverless cars. The project was announced on Google+ by Babak Parviz, an electrical engineer who has also worked on putting displays into contact lenses; Steve Lee, a project manager and 'geolocation specialist'; and Sebastian Thrun, who developed Udacity as well as worked on the self-driving car project. Google has patented the design of Project Glass.
