Google I/O 2013 & Google Glass!

16 Apr 2013  No Comments

It’s just around a corner, if you consider a month to be that short that is. However, it’s still close to me!

So just in case that a new thingy for them, here’s a simple breakdown taken shamefully from its Wikipedia page:

“Google I/O is an annual developer-focused conference held by Google in San Francisco, California. Google I/O features highly technical, in-depth sessions focused on building web, mobile, and enterprise applications with Google and open web technologies such as Android, Chrome, Chrome OS, Google APIs, Google Web Toolkit, App Engine, and more.”

So the event is happening on the 15th-17th of May and apparently, it only took 49 minutes to be exact for the event to be sold out for the $900 priced tickets. Which is not very surprising considering the scope of the conference itself. But for me, I’m just crossing my fingers to see other editions of Google Glass  with a release date would make my day, heck even my year. Now despite many controversies about the “Goggles” themselves seeing as a possible invasion of privacy..etc I’m still thinking it’s going to be big and isn’t going to take much time for them to grow popular between our middle aged demographic people.

Now Google themselves has been giving away and selecting people “almost” randomly but of course it isn’t free as once you have been chosen  you have to pay $1500 if you wanted to get the goggles. This “campaign” basically started around since late Feb. I believe till about mid March for people to submit their doings and wishes in the hash-tag of “#IfIhadGlass” and you just get replied back by Google Glass’ Twitter Account if you have been selected and I believe just a few hours ago if I’m not mistaken, specs of the goggles themselves started to come out and unveil as people started to receive them by now. So here’s a quick breakdown of the specifications of the explorer edition of the goggles:

Fit
Adjustable nosepads and durable frame fits any face.
Extra nosepads in two sizes.

Display
High resolution display is the equivalent of a 25 inch high definition screen from eight feet away.

Camera
Photos – 5 MP
Videos – 720p

Audio
Bone Conduction Transducer

Connectivity
Wi-Fi – 802.11b/g
Bluetooth

Storage
12 GB of usable memory, synced with Google cloud storage. 16 GB Flash total.

Battery
One full day of typical use. Some features, like Hangouts and video recording, are more battery intensive.

Charger
Included Micro USB cable and charger.

While there are thousands of Micro USB chargers out there, Glass is designed and tested with the included charger in mind. Use it and preserve long and prosperous Glass use.

Compatibility

Any Bluetooth-capable phone.
The MyGlass companion app requires Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or higher. MyGlass enables GPS and SMS messaging.

Hoping to see more info comes out and more real life testing and practicality of the goggles themselves. *Crossing fingers for early release date*

 

UPDATE:

It seems that it was answered/posted before by Google but I’ve gotten a reply for them regarding people wearing glasses already and how would they approach it, and I’ve gotten some good news which made me wanna pursue it even more.
