At Shady Grove Eye and Vision Care, we make it a priority to stay updated on the latest advancements in the visual health field. We want you to enjoy better eyesight and quality of life through state-of-the-art technologies, such as Google Glass. Here, your reliable eye specialist discusses the features and benefits of this innovative technology.
The Concept Behind Google Glass
Google Glass is a wearable, voice-activated gadget that was developed in 2012 by Google X, Google’s frontier technology center, under the Project Glass program. In 2013, it was made available to various developers and testers. Its operating system is Android-based, running on Glassware applications that were specifically programmed for the device. It also has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections, a GPS locator, and a camera for capturing images and videos.
How Google Glass Works
Google Glass looks like a pair of sleek eyeglasses. The device gathers signals based on your voice, visuals, and location. It lets you take pictures and navigate your way without having to use your hands. It then collates these data to give you relevant information, which will be directly displayed across your visual field. If you’re entering an airport, for example, your flight information will load on your Google Glass screen. Some models of this device can accommodate prescription lenses if you have refractive errors. Your expert optometrist will be ready to modify and upgrade your eyewear to give you a better visual experience.
Benefits of Google Glass
Google Glass is made of lightweight yet durable, high-quality materials to ensure your comfort. It’s also packed with connectivity features, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. With Google Glass, you can answer important emails easily and reach your destinations quickly. The integrated camera and speakers allow you to take videos and pictures on the go. With just one voice command, you’ll be able to relive the moment anytime, anywhere through the embedded screen.
