Google CEO Larry Page has now confirmed what we was hoping for, Google glass runs on a modified version of Android.
This was certainly good news for me as I was hoping for an excuse to write an article about Google glass on AndroidFact for quite some time now.
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.
How Google glass works
Simply put Google glass is a computer running Android Os that projects images directly onto your eyes. For a more in depth explanation check out this post on how Google glass works.
