Google Glass is a wearable computer with head mounted display and wearable camera that can do augmented reality. It is being developed by Google as Project Glass in research and development.
Google Glass displays information in a smartphone-like format hands-free, and can interact with the Internet via natural language voice commands.
Google Glass takes a step further toward ubiquitous computing, which is the idea that the Internet and computers will be accessible anywhere at any time without having to use your hands.
Google Glass has the ability to take photos and record 720p HD video. While video is recording, a recording light is displayed above the eye, which is unnoticeable to the wearer.
In general, reception for Google Glass has been positive in the technology industry.Concerns have been raised regarding intrusion of privacy. Advocates of privacy are worried that Glass wearers may be able to use facial recognition for illegitimate purposes such as identifying strangers in public. Google Glass may also be used to record and broadcast private conversations or meetings. The device may also further promote rude behaviors such as email checking during conversations.
In November 2012, Glass received recognition by Time Magazine as one of the "Best Inventions of the Year 2012".
