(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Ready to see the world from a whole new perspective? Well, you might just have to wait a bit longer. The very interesting project known as Google Glass is being rolled out to a limited number of Explorers for $1,500 a piece.
Google Chairman Eric Schmidt recently announced the move via All Things Digital’s Dive into Mobile Conference, according to a report from the Next Web.
And while the rest of us may be far away from receiving the very futurist product – Google has made tech specs available. Here’s a rundown:
Display – Google says it’s “high resolution,” but what we find most interesting is how the company equates it, noting it’s “the equivalent of a 25 inch high definition screen from eight feet”
Fit – It’ll go on any face using “adjustable nosepads and durable frame fits”
Charger – Micro USB cable
Connectivity – Wifi & Bluetooth
Storage – 12GB – syncs with Google cloud storage
Audio – Bone Conduction Transducer
Works with – A MyGlass companion app is available for Android 4.0.3 and above (GPS and SMS)
Battery – We were wondering about this. Google says it’ll provide for one full day of what it describes as “typical use.” The company notes that other features including video recording and Hangouts tend to drain the battery more.
Camera – 5 MP for photos along with 720p for video
