Google officially revealed a project that will push them to their creative limits. It’s called Project Glass, and it’s a pair of glasses that layers digital information over the real world. Google unveiled the Explorer Editions of Google Glass at I/O 2012, and they will be priced at $1500 and be available around early 2013. Google will also launch a consumer version priced much lower for mass adoption. Right now Glass Explorer Edition is only for the US and the device is only available for pre-order by I/O attendees. Still there are some regulatory issues to resolve prior to International shipping.
Watch the live demo of Google Glasses at Google I/O event in which number of Skydivers and stunt bikers performed together hanging out of Google Plus wearing Google Glasses.
There’s a “powerful” CPU and “lots” of RAM (though, there was no mention of specifics) alongside an accelerometer, gyroscope and wireless radios for pulling in data. There’s a mic for voice commands, a speaker and a camera, which can also be controlled by the touchpad that lines the side of the wearable device. All of those components sit off to one side, though Google says they’re still well-balanced and actually lighter than some pairs of sunglasses. The tiny transparent display doesn’t actually sit directly in front of your eye. It’s slightly above your line of vision, so that it shouldn’t interfere with your normal life.
OS on Google Glass
Android is used on Google glass. We will be able to scroll through the interface just by moving your head around and by voice input.
The Glasses will allow you to make voice and video calls, plan routes, know about the places in your surroundings, play music, taking photos (and sharing them through G+), remind you of your time-table & about the weather, send messages and a lot more.

Google Glasses will make the world around you interactive. Google is also working on a special pair of glasses for people who already wear glasses.DOWNLOAD SOLUTION HERE
