Awareness about the Google Glass

Although the Google glass has been quite the frenzy for a lot of people all over the world, when it comes to awareness about facts of the device, there is very little that people know. But like it is for any kind of technology, people see the avenues of making money and jump at it even with little knowledge, half the world seems to have become experts on Google Glasses Apps Development.

I mean, it is really irritating to try to read an online article about the glass without seeing a hundred links to a thousand companies that claim to help you ‘hire Google Glasses Developers’. I mean, seriously, do people even know what the glass is all about?

The other day, I was just talking to an old client of mine, who had absolutely no idea that the glass in fact did not sort a glass! He was surprised to know that the Google glass was only a frame with a chip that forced me to think that there may be many like him who need a little more information about the device itself, before they go head hunting to Hire Google Glass Developers.

So, in their interest, here’s a list of some interesting facts about the Glass:

See mom, no glass!

As shocking as it might seem to a lot of people, the Google glasses don’t have any glasses within them. For the most part it is just a frame with a tiny micro chip like display on the top corner of the frame near the eye.

The display is very small

Because of its placement, you don’t need a huge glass display. It is small and so has very little scope for you to showcase stuff. In case someone is promising you to develop a glass app loaded with features, you might want to hold that thought because there isn’t a lot of stuff that your user will be able to focus on through that tiny screen.

Can’t be folded

The glass only looks like an eyeglass but does everything that a glass can’t do. Similarly the Google glasses too can’t be treated like your regular pair of eye glasses as it can’t be folded and stashed in your pocket. If you aren’t wearing it, you might need a customized case for it that can be pretty big to carry.

Only the right eye

As of now, the version of the glass that is available only has that display thingy on the right eye corner. So, this means your left eye is always free to view the surrounding (if your brain can handle so much information all at once) while you are looking you stuff through your right eye.

No built in GPS

Believe it or not, your Google glass is only as wonderful as the GPS connection on your connecting device. The glass basically gets connected via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to your smart phones or tablets. The efficiency of your Glass depends entirely upon the performance of your connecting device.


Before you think about buying a glass, it is very important that you go out and do a little research about it. There is no doubt about the fact that it will be c\very popular soon and there are many business prospects lined up, but it is always advisable to know what you are getting into beforehand itself.
