Working Principle

Display

Voice Control
ADC translates the analog
waves (voice) into digital
data by sampling the sound.

Eye Tap Technology


Eye Tapis a device that is worn in front of
theeyethat acts as acamera to record the scene
available to the eye as well as a display.

Ambient Intelligence
Electronic

environments that are sensitive and

responsive to the presence of people.


Devices work in concert to support people in
carrying out their everyday life activities.
The technology disappears into our surroundings
until only the user interface remains perceivable
by users.

Augmented Reality
Augmented reality is a live, direct or indirect, view

of a physical, real-world environment.


Real-world elements areaugmentedbycomputer
generated sensory input such as sound, video,
graphics or GPS data.

Pros
Easy to wear and use.
Sensitive and responsive to the presence of
people.
Fast access of maps, documents, videos, chats
and much more.
A new trend for fashion lovers together being an
innovative technology.
A spectacle based computer to reside directly on
your eyes rather than in your pouch or pocket.
A
useful
technology
for
all
kinds
of
handicapped/disabled people.

Cons
Can be easily broken or damaged. Users will have
a tough time taking care of it.
It may lead to accidents while driving, eyestrain
or visual confusion.
The resource for running these glasses is still
unknown. Will there be a battery or it will run
using solar energy?
Privacy of people may breach with nwglasses.
Can be used only in metro cities.

Future Scopes
Google Glass is as futuristic agadgetweve seen in
recent times. It has an enormous range of scope in
the years to come, Google believes, is bright and the
device itself is incredibly compelling. Google is
trying their best to push the Project Glass through
the FCC this year. Reports show that Google is trying
to get the approval by the FCC this year but there
are already several hundred glasses made for
testing internally.

CONCLUSION
Google glasses are basically wearable computers that
use

the

evolving

familiar

technologies

bringing

together the sophistication and ease of communication


and information access not only for the privileged
general masses but even for the physically challenged
section of the society those who are at most instances
unable to actually operate general electronic devices
like the palmtops mobile phones and etcetera.
