Google Glass specs arrive, the screen is equivalent to a 25-inch monitor in front of your face

Google Glass specifications are here, high-resolution display is equal to that of a 25-inch monitor in front of you

Google have finally unveiled the full specifications of their Glass tech, which is actually a bit better than what I thought we'd receive in the final consumer units.



We have the display first, which is a high-resolution display being the equivalent to a 25-inch high-definition screen eight feet away from your eyes. Camera-wise, we have a 5-megapixel camera for photos and 720p capture for video, there's some adjustable nosepads with a durable frame that fits any face. There's also two extra nosepads included.


We have a Bond Conduction Transducer for audio, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g and Bluetooth for connectivity, 12GB of usable memory synced with Google cloud storage, 16GB of flash memory total. Battery life should be good, with Google quoting "one full day of typical use", which includes Hangouts and video recording which are more battery intensive.

There's an included microUSB cable and charger, and now onto the most important bit - compatibility. Glass is compatible with any Bluetooth-capable phone, with the MyGlass companion app requiring Android 4.0.3 or higher. MyGlass enables GPS and SMS messaging.
