Eyeing at a Piece of Future: The Google Glass

When I was a little child here were so many things that I thought were impossible. However, as I kept growing and technology kept on evolving I realised that there is absolutely nothing that can be regarded as truly impossible today. The rate at which technology took a turn forced me to join the world of web development and coding. And the more I learnt, the more fascinated I continued to get.

So, exactly what is futuristic?

Any technology that seems ahead of its time is futuristic technology. The best example that we can quote today is that of the Google Glasses. This piece of technology has been thought about ever since the series of Star Trek came forth. However, today this fascinating gadget is a reality.

What is Google Glass?

Google Glass is nothing but a wearable computer that one can mount just like a pair of spectacles. The Google Glasses do not sport any lenses ad are essentially just the frame with a tiny chip attached to one side of the frame. With the Google Glasses you can do a host of activities including clicking pictures, recording videos, searching maps and much more.

How does Google Glass Application Development help?

  3. Voice controlled status uploads on Social networking sites
  4. Voice activated phone dialer connected to the handset through Bluetooth
  5. Bar Code scanner
  6. Google maps

And many more.

What next?

Many technology enthusiasts are hoping to get their hands on this device to be able to better study it and create many other apps that can make the device much more usable. Amongst all the rumors about how amazing this device is, there is also a lot of discussion regarding how difficult it is to actually be used.

It is being speculated that the second version will be a lot more user friendly than the previous versions. The voice command software is better honed and the touch pad on the side is enhanced. Also, this new version can be worn with prescription glasses. It comes along with an earpiece too.

On the whole, as amazing as the Google Glass may be, there is every possibility that the device wasn’t yet ready for a launch. A few more functional and usable changes only will be able to make it a hit for it to be used as commonly as the smart phone.
