Google Glass Explorer Program Starts: 10 Key Features to Know About
Google recently released the specifications on its wildly anticipated—and ultra-futuristic—Google Glass. For those who haven't been following the news, Google Glass is the search giant's eyewear that, it claims, will transform the way people live their daily lives. From the ability snap photos with the eyewear to the opportunity to get directions from the lens, Google Glass looks to be one of the most interesting and perhaps useful products announced in a long time. Google Glass is undergoing field evaluations by members of the Explorer Program, who were lucky enough to be selected to pay $1,500 for a chance to try out the device. But how can the rest of us decide whether Google Glass might be worth buying whenever the technology goes into mass production? Will Google Glass come with features that actually impress the average user, or will it be just another device that has plenty of promise but little in the way of practical value? This eWEEK slide show examines Google Glass and its specifications to help determine if it'll come with enough interesting features to impress users. Take a look at the features and decide whether or not Google Glass makes sense for you.
