Google Glass Computer

Google Glass is a wearable computer with an optical head-mounted display that is being developed by Google in the Project Glass research and development project, with a mission of producing a mass-market ubiquitous computer. Google Glass displays information in a Smartphone-like hands-free format that can communicate with the Internet via natural language voice commands.

Voice activation

nov13_GOOGLEOther than the touchpad, Google Glass can be controlled using “voice actions”. To activate Glass, wearers tilt their heads 30° upward (which can be altered for preference) or tap the touchpad, and say “O.K., Glass.” Once Glass is activated, wearers can say an action, such as “Take a picture”, “Record a video”, “Hangout with [person/Google+ circle]”, “Google ‘what year was Wikipedia founded?'”, “Give me directions to the Eiffel Tower”, and “Send a message to John”(many of these commands can be seen in a product video released in February 2013).
