Google has released details on its futuristic headset, Glass.
According to NBC News the Glass software will be named “Glasswear” and will be broadcast on a square that sits right above eye level. Google claims it’s the equivalent of watching a 25-inch high-definition screen from eight feet away.
One major feature Google is advertising is that Glass will run for a full day with typical use.
Glass can take five-megapixel photos and shoot 720p video with 16GB of flash memory.
In case you had hope that Google Glass might be water-resistant and handle a quick dip in the pool, I’ve got bad news for you. “Don’t let the Glass device or battery come in contact with liquids,” Google’s Glass help pages warn. “Liquids can get into the electronic components, leading to corrosion.”
