Everyone has been waiting anxiously for the Google Glasses to become available for the general public. In fact the wait seemed to be so long that people had started getting agitated towards the explorers themselves.
We repeatedly heard news about explorers being attacked in the general public places like bars and restaurants. However, now things are about to take a turn for the better. The Google Glasses are soon to become available for the general public. However, for now, the Glass was available on 15th April, for a one day sale at the price of $1,500 plus tax.
What are the features that drove the people crazy?
The Glass is so amazing that it quite literally drove its fans crazy. With so many features and apps to support it, the glass quickly earned its reputation as the world’s most amazing device. Its most promising features are:
A touchpad is positioned on the side of Google Glass, enabling users to organize and handle the device by swiping through a timeline-like crossing point presented on the screen. Sliding backward shows current events, such as weather, and sliding forward shows past events, such as phone calls, photos, circle updates, etc.
Probably the most spoken about feature of the Google Glasses is the camera. Google Glass has the ability to take photos and record 720p HD video. While video is recording, the screen stays on while it is doing so. The most exciting thing about it is that it allows you to take complete point of view videos unlike any other device.
The Explorer version of Google Glass uses a Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS), field-sequential color, LED illuminated display. The display’s LED elucidation is first P-polarized and then stands out through the in-coupling polarizing beam splitter (PBS) to the LCoS panel. The panel reflects the light and alters it to S-polarization at active pixel sites. The in-coupling PBS then mirrors the S-polarized areas of light at 45° through the out-coupling beam splitter to a collimating reflector at the other end. Finally, the out-coupling beam splitter (which is a partially reflecting mirror, not a polarizing beam splitter) reflects the collimated light another 45° and into the wearer’s eye.
So, who would buy the Google Glass?
The explorer program was initially started off to ensure that people from various countries and backgrounds could use it and thereby be able to give a definition on its uses in various industries. This worked quite well to a large extent because new and innovative sources have been able to show how the explorer program is extremely useful in various industries such as medicine, fire fighting, real estate, so on and so forth. This is why people belonging from every industry have become keen on getting the glass for themselves in order to become able to use it in their own specific businesses.
Also, developers and tech savvy people too have begun taking the plunge and participating in the purchase and use program to ensure that they can reap the maximum benefits of the same. There are so many kinds of apps that people are developing to help in making the device itself extremely user friendly. As more and more apps keep surfacing in the market, the demand for this great device will continue to see the rise.
