Its been more than an year since Google started pastering which is called ” Project Glass “.In 13 months, Glass has gone from Star Trek fantasy to reality. It’s been quite the whirlwind of activity.

The “wearable computing” age was depended upon us, and it’s been widely reported that Apple was working on a watch, therefore many assumed that Google was working on a similar device to keep up.

Lets take a stroll down look over the facts that Google share about this Project Galass :-

# Fact 1:

There are seven voice commands built into this first “Explorers” edition of Google Glass. Two of those six are search-related: “google…” and “get directions to….” The others are “take a photo,” “record a video,” “send a message to,” “make a call to” and “start a Hangout with.”

# Fact 2:

The device automatically shows us the kind of information Google thinks we will be  looking for. There’s no Web browser in Google Glass, so there’s nothing to navigate to. So, search on Glass is built for finding information, not for finding webpages. Search is fully voice-activated. You start by saying “okay, glass,” then you say “google” to bring up the search screen.
