Google reveals specs for Project Glass


Google has published the technical specifications for their upcoming Google Glass technology, detailing everything from the camera size to projected battery life.

The glasses will feature “Adjustable nosepads and durable frame fits any face”, along with additional nose pads but that’s just the physical framework. In terms of actual gadgetry Google Glass will have a 5 megapixel camera, capable of recording video in 720p, and the high-res display will be “…the equivalent of a 25 inch high definition screen from eight feet away.”

Glass will support Bluetooth and 802.11 b/g WiFi, audio will be transmitted via a Bone Conduction Transducer and it will ship with 16GB of flash memory. 12GB of this will be usable and can be synced with Google cloud storage, the rest is given over to the OS it seems.

Battery life is expected to last a day, though using Hangouts and video recording will shorten that time somewhat. Glass will charge via a microUSB cable and it will be compatible with “Any Bluetooth-capable phone”. About the only compatibility hiccup seems to be that the MyGlass companion app for the device will require Android 4.0.3 or better to function.
