After shipping the first batch of Google Glass to developers, Google has released the tech specs of its highly anticipated glasses. The specs include information about the glasses’ camera, memory, connectivity capabilities, battery life and charger. Unfortunately, one piece of information that most consumers would probably want to see that isn’t included is the price of Google Glass.
Although the glasses are now with developers, it is unclear when they will become publicly available. It has been speculated that they will be on the market within a year but that has yet to be confirmed, according to Fox News.
An API (Application Programming Interface) for the new glasses has also been released. That means that anyone who wants to can start working on apps to interface with the fancy new spectacles.
The full list of specs from Google is below:
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.
