Google Glass This is the future Google glass will change how we live. Google Glass is a wearable computer with an optical head-mounted display. Google Glass displays information in a smartphone hands-free format. It works with voice command through the internet like a phone would. The glasses do not have lens in them it’s just a little computer screen type device. “Testers have found the glass to be quite comfortable” (Hill,2013) This is a new way to advertise products. This is a new way to buy products and to communicate with the sellers. You can look at something you want and it will read what it is and take you to a web site where it is available. “Simply look at them, find out where they’re from, and buy them instantly within (literally) the blink of an eye.”(unknown,2013) This will change the future of shopping online. Google glass will be the future of mapping. This product will read where you have walked. It will have satellite, and street views, it will also have 3d views on the maps. This product uses Google maps to help you navigate just like a gps on a cellphone but only hands free. Google glass is going to be the future of journalism. This will make it way easer to record people hands free. You will be able to get video footage on the go. This will make it less suspicious when you are undercover trying to get info instead of holding a huge camera. With this new technology I think it would be invading our privacy by not knowing you are being recorded.

...ACKNOWLEDGEMENT [pic] We would like to thank Asst. Prof., Ila Parmar for her guidance, her support and the opportunity to work on this project and H.O.D., Mr. Lokhandvala for his support and the encouragement. We would also like to thank our families for their constant support, encouragement and motivation without which the accomplishment of this project would not be possible. We would also like to thank our friends and all the people who directly or indirectly played a role in this project. ABSTRACT [pic] Mankind has always strived to give life like qualities to it’s artifacts in an attempt to find substitutes for himself to carry out his orders and also to work in a hostile environment. The popular concept of a robot is of a machine that looks like a human being. Cleaning of floors of rooms and corridor usually involves lot of effort and labour on the part of the person doing it. It causes much trouble, waste of time and energy on the part of humans. Moreover, it also proves to be expensive if a person is hired for doing it. It also makes the employer dependent on the person hired for getting the job done. Thus it bounds people in a way and renders them helpless. What if this process is made automatic and independent of any apparent human role. This can be done with the help of embedded technology and automation. That is the job we as future EC engineers have undertaken. The process of cleaning can......

...Display Google Glass uses a miniature display(640 x 360) to put data in front (or at least, to the upper right) of your vision courtesy of a prism screen. This is designed to be easily seen without obstructing your view. Voice Commands Glass responds to voice commands as well as taps and gestures on the touch-sensitive bar that runs along the side of the frame. You can start a search with "Ok Glass." and take a photo or launch an app with a command phrase or a tap of your finger. Glass can also be paired with a phone using the My Glass app to allow quick fiddling with settings and customisation. Navigation You'll be able to use Google Maps to get directions although as there is no built in GPS receiver you'll need to tether Glass to your smartphone. Several third party developers have announced apps for services including Evernote, Skitch and Path. Memory There's 16GB of flash memory built into the device, although only 12GB is currently available for user storage. The device will sync to your Google Drive, giving you both a place to stash your photos and video clips as well as a stash of documents and files you can call up from the cloud. Camera There is a 5 megapixel camera built-in to the frame that can also capture video at 720p resolution. Battery The rechargeable battery last for roughly a day, although that's with the standard "typical use" caveat, which probably excludes a lot of video capture or playback. Connection Bluetooth and WiFi will be built in,...

Google Glass isn't available for purchase yet, but for a fee of $1,500 before taxes you can be placed on a list if a spot opens up. Google Glass for me would work great in my personal and work life. In my daily activities in personal life I would be able to capture tons of pictures as I do now, and record videos. The Google Glass would help me out by allowing my hand to be free while I'm doing something. I would be able to capture special moments without reaching in my purse to find my phone, and possibly missing the moment. I would have the time there available on the glass, seeing as I don't wear a watch. It can also give me directions while I’m driving so I won't have to look at the GPS.

Since our task was to provide advising to the average consumer on both advantages and problems concerning Google’s wearable, our goal was to exterminate all personal bias and provide a report that, while providing informed advice, leaves the consumer armed with the information he/she needs to make an informed and personal purchasing decision. Upon gathering our research, we learned a lot about how committed both Google and other entities are to pushing Project Glass into the consumer electronics arena, and came up with the general conclusion that if a consumer is interested in this bleeding-edge technology, it would probably suit him/her best to wait until the consumer version of this product is announced, with the added features and lower price tag Google has promised en towe. ...

...1. Google Glass from Google Incorporate 2. We chose this product because it is convenient, useful and high technology but unsuccessful product. 3. Google was found in 1998 by Sergey Brin and Larry Page while they were PhD students at Stanford University. Google is an American multinational technology company. The name of "Google" originates from the misspelling of the word "googol", a mathematical term, which means 1 followed by 100 zeros. Google’s chairman is Eric Schmidt and Larry Page is the CEO. Its headquarter is in California called Googleplex and over 70 offices in more than 40 countries with more than 55 thousand of employees. The main product of Google of course is Google search. Their mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. One of the interesting fact of Google is Google has a pet T-rex, named Stan, which lives at their California headquarters. The reason why the founders bought it is because they want to remind the employees to not let Google go extinct. 4.

Google Glass - Ethical or Not?

...Assignment Topic Area: Technology and Business Ethics Thesis: Should the ‘Google Glass’ be sold to the general public, or, should there be a restriction on the people who can use the device? Imagine what the world would be like with the ‘Google Glass’, a device that can be used to capture everything, even our thoughts, and it all happens without our consent. Although the glass is a revolutionary piece of innovation that allows access to information and services in a matter of seconds, it is “essentially going to allow people to come in and spy on you and record that without you knowing what’s going on”. Google claims that the glasses are designed to address this issue of privacy and “in order to activate the camera or to record the video you have to take an explicit gesture or say something out loud”. However, there are ways around this, such as developed by Mike Di Giovanni, who has came up with a way to take pictures with just a wink and hackers have also been able to run facial recognition programs on the device, where the glass can scan a face and provide information about that person. With technology like this available to the public anything can be recorded and uploaded on the Internet in a matter of minutes, therefore its use is essentially breaking ethical codes by disrespecting the privacy of others. A recent example is a video uploaded by filmmaker, Chris Barret, who secretively captured an arrest on the New Jersey boardwalk on the 4th of July 2013 and......

Report on Google Glass

...Alexander Klocke Group member: Gul Turgut English C1; WiSe14/15 Instructor: David Martin 03.12.2014 Göttingen Report on Google Glass limitations Introduction Our latest product Google Glass has absolved the beta phase. As a result of that we got a lot of feedback, which will help us to improve our product. The task of our team is to forecast the Google Glass’ potential for longevity. In order to that it was my job to analyze the limitations by itself and even to work the social hurdles out. Over the last weeks we gathered lots of ideas for improvements from our 10.000 “Explorers”. Findings To start with the technological impression, there is to say that the technological level is very low. Countless flaws led to nine updates since the release of the beta version, which means much effort for our customers to keep at the best available technology. Another point is that the software seems to be quite poorly sophisticated. It is neither possible to edit photos nor to upload them to Instagram. The directory includes only 10 contacts while it has very weak capabilities anyway. Besides that there are struggles with the voice control while talking in loud areas what makes our Google Glass useless in such a situation. Furthermore many consumers have complained about the weak battery, which only runs about 2 hours or 45 minutes of recording. Consequently our product is not made for workaday life. In comparison to conventional glasses our product does not have......
