What is Google glass

Google glass is eyeglasses with a computer that you can wear. So why would you want to wear a computer on your head you say.. Well this is a completely different piece of computer that you have seen before. The computer is mounted on a piece of eyeglasses, with a twist that is. There is no glass just a projector that projects an image directly onto one of your eyes.

Imagine that you can get information right from the Internet on things that you pass on your way without the need to get your PC or smartphone out of your pocket.

Another use that springs to mind is that you can use them to take pictures or shoot a video while still having both hands available for whatever you want.
