Google Glass is a new type of hands-free device that allows you to really experience augmented reality/virtual reality via a prism projector that projects a small screen in front of your eyes.

So, how does Google Glass work?

Google Glass uses a prism projector with 640 by 360 pixel resolution that is equivalent to 25-inches of screen real estate from 8 feet away.  All said and done, Google glass screen is like a PIP feature on a TV.  You will see a screen on top-right of your peripheral vision large enough to see all the while being able to still see.

To connect Google Glass to internet, you can use MyGlass available on Play Store to create QR code that will allow you to connect your Glass to your wifi network.  You can also pair Google Glass to MyGlass app via bluetooth to add new apps, contacts, and more.

Google Glass allows you to use voice commands, specifically “Okay Glass” to activate certain features like take a picture, record a video, call people, or even video conference using Google Hangouts app.

Google Glass comes with Google Search feature that is similar to Google Now on smartphones.  You will be able to quickly calculate math equations, look up who’s the President of country, watch YouTube videos, and much much more.

For camera, Google Glass comes with a 5 mega-pixel camera along with video recording at 720P HD.  The quality of photos are excellent while video recording could be improved.  Since current Google Glass is still beta and experimental, I could certainly see much better resolution coming in upcoming consumer versions.

The speakers on Google Glass uses bone conduction through a transducer that is located by the ear, this allows the user to hear perfectly while the sound is inaudible to others.
