Increasingly, people are glued to their smartphones every day, which has become a major utility in personal mobile internet access. This is why Google Glass came to life. The main goal is to let people do things using their eyes alone rather being stuck to their smartphones, allowing the hands to be free. In the earlier stages of Google Glass, only a few people were given the opportunity to own it. This was designed to test whether or not the said device will be a major hit. Indeed, it took no time for the people to clamor for its worldwide release. However, it also paved the way for more legal issues to arise. YouTube videos have shown what the device is capable of, as well as interactions with people hostile towards Glass. Privacy concerns and other matters came to light because of the device's innovative, and some would argue intrusive, features.

In 2013, it was expected that Google Glass would go for a full release. However, that did not happen. In the U.S., a few people had the opportunity to get the item for $1,500 a pair. This year, it is expected that Google Glass would have a wider consumer launch. The price of the said item is expected to be a lot cheaper, possibly costing as much as a top end smart phone.

Google Glass doesn't have lenses but it is battery powered with heads-up display (HUD). The overall concept is just like a smartphone, but everything is delivered directly to your eyes. Some of its features include a camera that can take pictures by simply blinking, as well as microphone, GPS and other tasks expected from a smartphone. It also has a voice recognition technology. Using your voice, you can ask the device to take photos, provide info via Google search, provide directions, and translate your voice and many others. Google Glass comes in different colors. However, aside from the main device, you also have to buy the frame for a separate price. The potential capacity of this device is seemingly endless. Other developers are set to create devices to compete with Google Glass.
