Google Glass is reality augmented glasses and is a classic endeavor on the part of Google. It is better than the normal glasses in every possible way. Designed to transmit the perceived information to your right eye, Google Glass is one of the trendiest gadget to possess. With the launch of a whole new array of hues and frames, the Google Glass has become the new in.

So what is it about Google Glass that makes it different? Let us take a peek into the specifications of this amazing product.

PROS

Some of the promising features of Google Glass are

  • USER FRIENDLY INTERFACE:

    The interface has been designed to match your comfort so that you can scroll through the menu leisurely. Voice command is a great feature that allows you to voice-control the Google Glass without any glitch.

  • CAMERA:

    This singular feature has made Google Glass an instant success. Voice-maneuvering the camera makes it possible for you to capture every photo perfectly. The quality of the pictures matches that of any of the smart phone. However, one edge that Google Glass has over the cameras and smart phones is the great variance in angles at which the photos can be taken.

  • EMAILS:

    reading your email with a single swipe of the finger without actually touching the glass is another of the amazing features. So is going through the tweets on Twitter.

  • CLOCK:

    referring to your cell phone and watches to check time is no more a necessity when Google Glass has it on display for you right in front of your eyes.

 

CONS

One of the major concerns that have been raised since the launch of Google Glass has been that of privacy. It has made invading people’s privacy quite easier. Incorporation of features like a blinking recording light might resolve the problem by indicating to a person that Google Glass is at work and might be recording or clicking away their personal life.

VERDICT

Although the usage and applicability of Google Glass is quite limited at the moment, further trials are being carried out to test its viability in the markets. The availability of less than a 100 applications doesn’t make it that appealing. New features are likely to be incorporated to increase the customers’ interest in the product. The real challenge that will be faced by Google will be to pique the interest of the potential users in the product to a level where they’ll be actually willing to buy this gadget and use it out in the open.
