Google Glass with Orange band

Google has revealed the specs for Google Glass, its upcoming interactive glasses. The specs say Google Glass is compatible with any Bluetooth-capable phone, but the MyGlass companion app requires Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or higher. You need the MyGlass app for GPS and SMS messaging.

Google describes the display on the device as the equivalent of viewing a 25 inch high definition screen from eight feet away. Google Glass has a 5- megapixel camera that can record 720p videos.

Google Glass has 16 GB of total Flash memory. 12 GB of this is usable memory, which is synced with Google cloud storage. Google says the battery is good for one full day of typical use, however, features like Hangouts and video recording are more battery intensive.

Google says Glass has adjustable nosepads and a frame that fits any face. Extra nosepads are also available in two sizes.
