Default Say Hello to "Google Glass"

http://www.google.com/glass/start/how-it-feels/

Funny that they are charging 1500 dollars from beta testers.
Anyways if you somehow got one to beta test it, let us know how it is.

Love the Google guys. Always coming up with new stuff.

OT: With this thing lot of traffic issues in India, like He hit me, No he hit me will be a thing of Past.

Any hardware spec shared? How much can it record? Does it access Internet?

If you see the video there is a point where it seems to be accessing the data like pictures etc on voice commands. Maybe it is hooked via wifi.

Perhaps a description of what it is all about will not hurt since the website hung my PC (and may do so to the others).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Glass (for those who face problem with the site)

These will be the links.
It is a wearable camera(?). It looks like fancy sun glass. Only thing is that the glass is transparent. Has in built display system for user.
It records, takes pictures, Shares, Send Messages, Does language translations. Atleast that is what interests me.

After reading what ever is available on the internet about "GLASS", i simply cannot believe that this thing will be in stores by the end of 2013.
Yes it is in its beta form, but the possibilities are limitless...

Check out the review of the Google Glass on the following link :-
