Google Glass' Proper Fit

They say beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. And when it comes to Google Glass, that's certainly true. The technology is made to fit onto the person's face like glasses, but there's only one lens. Some have said the glasses look nice, while others balk at such a claim. The big question, though, is how will it work with standard glasses, including corrective lenses?


Google Glass might just be one of the most exciting and anticipated products that eventually reaches the market in the next several months. The technology, which is essentially, a single-framed lens that has a heads-up display and the ability to communicate with its user, will soon be tested by thousands of people. If all goes well, Google Glass could finally go on sale sometime later this year or early next year. Google has, for now, been tight-lipped on its eventual plans. But that doesn't mean that Google Glass isn't coming. Quite the contrary, the technology appears to be the kind of innovative new product that's needed in the industry. It could also define and confirm the utility of wearable technology. To say that Google Glass looks promising is a major understatement. But why would Google Glass inspire such excitement? More importantly, what can today's consumers and enterprise users expect from the glasses? Here, eWEEK discusses the features and apps built into the device to help you determine whether Google Glass will be useful in your work and life.
