How Google Glass Works ? And Introduction To Google Glass Features

This technology is existent in hearing aids but was never used as an information relaying device with both audio and visuals for the wearer.

The Glass works much like City Lens in Nokia’s Lumia series, overlaying augmented reality data about the user’s surrounding that is supplied by Google’s own sat nav (satellite navigation) data.Google Glass

As an introduction…

  • The device has been designed for instant sharing and uploads images, video and audio on the go, online.
  • There is a power cable attached to the right side of the Glass frame that is used to recharge the device.
  • The prototype can currently store limited video file data and is expected to be tweaked for larger storage and battery power capabilities.
  • Google has filed a patent labeled “Wearable Computing Device with Indirect Bone-Conduction Speaker” to mark this technology that is used in the Glass.

The Glass also features a built in miniature camera that can be used to take good quality photographs. The screen in future models is expected to be AMOLED and feature motion sensors, GPS, 4G and connect to smart phones via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth 4.0. The Glass directly connects to cloud so all your content can be stored online within seconds.

How Google Glass Works ?

Watch the latest video to understand how Google Glass works…

Google is currently working on the Glass project to fit over people’s eyes that already have vision corrective glasses on.

Google Glass works by your voice command. You can speak to the glass and it gives you back response that’s the real experience you get from it.

When you say,

Ok Glass start recording – it starts a video recording of what you see through the Glass

Ok Glass take a picture – it snaps what you see through the Glass.

You can search for any information, see route map, ask questions, broadcast/share what you see – yes, it interacts and helps you with many stuffs + unlimited real life entertainment !

The current design is not inclusive of this group and the future variants are expected to address this issue. There is also the question of whether contact lenses can be embedded with micro technology to provide the same features and services Glass is currently equipped with.

  • Google’s focus is to bring every kind of information at your fingertips, or in this case at your retina with its attention to augmented reality. You could look for ATMs or book a table or find the near motel or gas station with just a pair of glasses if Google gets it right!

Here we go with the features and how it works on Google Glass.

  • Live record, Live photo and Share. You can record what you see through the Glass and also, take photo snaps of what you see through the Glass. You can also share them on social networking web sites.
  • SMS/Email on Eyes. You can read the new SMS or Emails as well as reply to them with your own Voice commands.
  • Voice Search. Like Google web search, you can ask or search for any information. It also reads back the results by Voice.
  • Google Maps Integrated. Google glass is integrated with our usual Google Maps and it takes you Live through the routes wherever you want to go.
  • Live Broadcast Yourself. You can broadcast what you are seeing through the Glass to your friends and family members, this is one of the amazing feature of Google Glass.
  • Google Now Integrated. This tracks your daily habit and suggests routes (based on traffic conditions), weather information  and to become betterment in your day-to-day habits.

Google Glass Works HerePublic release of Google Glass is expected to be in early 2014 by which time Google should have perfected many features like battery power, contact lenses, glasses and other minor enhancements we would love to see. Priced at a $1500, this is steep but for the kind of technology at your disposal it is fair to expect pricing that veers towards the higher side.

Once this hits stores, we will see living versions of the animated series, Johnny Quest , only in this case the wear has all the information about his current world on his screen instead of a make believe world.

Tech enthusiasts are very excited about this new gadget as is the general public. Once the Glass comes out, it is a whole new tech war with the battle of the senses that will be unleashed!

Cookoo SmartPhone Watch That Interacts With Your SmartPhone

Technology has taken over the lives. Cellphones, tablets, TV’s, PCs, cameras and many other innovative devices take care of our day to day living. So much so that a day without the phone or tablet feels like a void, we lose sense of what is happening. Fostering this era of gadgets and gizmos is the interfacing between different devices, PCs and tablets, cellphones as remote controls, TV and smartphones. The latest in line is high tech watches talking to smartphones and controlling them!

A start up at the Consumer electronics Showcase has unveiled a smart watch that can not only control Apple’s iPhone but also lasts upto a year on a standard button cell traditionally used in watches. Watches are now officially part of the “smart” bracket, with the Cookoo paving the way for faster, deeply integrated, better “smart watches”.

Cookoo SmartPhone Watch Features

Cookoo SmartPhone Watch

  • The watch is controlled by Bluetooth ([amazon_link id=”B00BB78Q0W” rel=”” target=”_blank” ]more info on Cookoo watch[/amazon_link]), so any messages, updates, emails and calls to your phone is immediately transmitted to the watch and relevant information is presented on the watch face.
  • By design, the watch is heavyset and better suited to the male wrist than the more slender female wrist.
  • It is elegantly built with classy analog hands that show time like any other high end watch. This is where the similarity ends, even with top-notch watches.
  • The Cookoo goes a step further with a digital face beneath the hands to display digital indicators from your smartphone.
  • The watch can give you information like email and Facebook updates, messages from friends, information about callers and missed calls, appointments and even works as a remote trigger for the smartphone camera to click a picture. Cookoo’s unveiling in Las Vegas generated great excitement in the CES, with its release heralding a new era of phone-watch interfacing and remote control.
  • Holding the connect button for 3 seconds will put the SmartPhone watch ON or OFF.
  • The Command buttons are customizable that you can setup your own action for each type of inputs like long press, medium press, short press.
  • This SmartPhone watch is compatible with iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPad 3rd as well as 4th generation devices.

Using a series of beeps and vibrations, the watch can alert you of a call you are receiving or of any calls you have missed. Bluetooth communication has gone beyond mere audio and video transfer between phones.  The watch comes with different colors and you can pick a favorite one as you like.Cookoo Different Color Models

It can now be used to communicate with watches, headsets for hands free service while driving, in offices, or even at home.

The Cookoo illustrates the power of technology and the rapid pace at which it is advancing. As of today, it doesn’t have Android support and it is expected to available in near future.

  • In spite of continuously running, the watch lasts up to a year on standard battery. This is made possible because of Bluetooth 4.0, a low energy version of the original Bluetooth technology.
  • An app from the iPhone 4S and above series enables communication between the phone and the watch via Bluetooth  The only downside to this ingenious device is that few smartphones today have the capability and hardware chip support for low energy Bluetooth transfer.
  • This iPhone App helps to locate the watch remotely. Once you activate Find from the app, it sends a trigger and the watch beeps/alarms for few seconds so that you can locate it.

Thus this watch is limited to the high end phone market that supports Bluetooth 4.0.

Cookoo SmartPhone Watch Weared on-hand

ConnecteDevice is the start up that makes the Cookoo and has smartly priced the watch at a justified approx $130. A watch and quasi phone, the Cookoo provides a new, fresh interesting turn to the gadgets currently available in the markets today. Most new companies are focusing on powerful, feature-packed phones and tablets to get ahead of competition. ConnecteDevice, however seems to be thinking out of the box to create new, funky, useful devices that will flood tech markets.

New Google Glass The Latest Revolution May Hit Market In 2014

Computers are becoming smaller and smaller day by day. From the days of ENIAC, the size of computer has reduced from a building to the palm of your hand. However, Google has forwarded one step and made the computer a wearable device. The Google glassit is the latest computer built in the frame of a pair of glasses.

New Google GlassThe Google glass was first announced in April 2012, under “Project Glass”. The announcement came on Google+, publishers were Babak Parviz – the electrical engineer, Steve Lee – the project manager and Sebastian Thrun – the Vice President of Google and founder of Google X Lab.

Since its announcement the Google Glass has received a positive response. In the very first week of the announcement, the post on Google+ received huge comments, suggestions and feedback. From that moment on, tech savvies around the globe started following the Google glass.

As it has appeared, the Google glass looks like just a pair of normal eye glasses, where the glass or plastic lenses are replaced by an augmented reality HUD or heads-up display. A HUD is actually a transparent display where data is displayed in such a way that user does not need to look away from the usual view point to view the display – a technology initially used in military aircraft  later adopted in commercial airliners, automobiles etc.

  • Google glass is voice controlled and it represents the information in “smartphone-like” format.
  • It beams the information directly into your field of vision and responds as you say.
  • In the first video release, Google glass is displayed to work as per instruction “spoken” to it. Even a reply of SMS was sent while eating by voice command. In this video, Google glass was displayed as a futuristic device that puts your smartphone into your sunglasses or spectacles and projects its contents for some voice-activated fun.

Google glass was a major topic of talking throughout the whole 2012. In January 2013, it gets the hype again when a US regulator published some new details on it. The U.S. Federal Communications Commission’s website releases a test report. In this report it is described that “video playing on the device alongside audio running to a ‘vibrating element’.

The description tallies with a patent filing suggesting it plays sound via “bone-conduction” tech rather than earbuds.”

It was speculated that the Google glass will hit the market by the end of 2014.

Though Google glass created very much hype among the tech savvy people, but Google is not the only company to develop wearable technology. Motorola Solutions announced HC1 headset computer system which is a rig controlled by voice and gesture.

  • An Airwave – ski goggles was announced by Oakley. This goggles comes with a built-in screen that displays the speed, size of jumps and the information of the music it is playing.In Las Vegas Consumer Electronic Show, several other wearable technologies were show cased. Among them were Vuzix’s Android-powered M100 smartphone, a set of digital glasses from Microsoft etc.

The new era of computing is certainly knocking at door, but it is still unclear how this technology will be received in the market and what will be their future, or will they create new future for market.

Here is a latest documentary on Google Glass that i found on Youtube…
