One of the many divisions of Google is called Google X . The Google X projects face major engineering problems, and one of the many projects he has worked with the division's Project Glass.

The main purpose of the project was to build a wearable that allow you to explore and share your world through a pair of glasses. Once released the beta program for developers, Google Glass holders can use it to: remember meetings and events calendar, alert activity on social networks, give directions, and give updates local weather and traffic.
Google Glass is full of chips, sensors and feedback devices.

There are a few different ways to manage Google Glass. One is using the capacitive touch pad on the right side of the lens.

This responds to changes in capacitance, which essentially is a weak electrostatic field along the screen. When your finger touches the panel, a controller chip detects the resulting change in electrical capacitance and registers as a touch. Slide your finger horizontally lets you navigate menus on the device. Swipe down takes you back, or puts lenses in sleep mode.

Voice commands can also be controlled with a microphone picks up your voice and the microprocessor interprets the commands.

Do not expect anything and say that Google Glass answer you - there is a list of commands you can use, and most of them start with "OK, Glass". Like, "OK, Glass, take a picture" capture team and what you're seeing.

While you can use the Google Glass to take pictures and record video without having it connected to the Internet to get the most benefit from the product you need to. The two ways to do this is via Bluetooth or WiFi.

Another chip, the SiRFstarIV, is a global positioning system (GPS) that allows you to determine your location Glass via satellite signals.

While inside the Google Glass is interesting, the attractant component is a prism-like screen.

Speaker Google Glass is a bone conduction speaker. That means that the speaker sends vibrations that travel through your skull to the inside of your ear. Use the camera and speakerphone allows you to make video calls conference.

The glasses also have a proximity sensor and ambient light sensor. These sensors help determine if the lenses are being used or were removed. A final sensor within the Google Glass is the InvenSense MPU-9150. This chip is an inertia sensor, which means that detects movements.

All these chips and features require power to operate. This energy is provided by a battery that fits behind your right ear. It is a lithium polymer battery with a capacity of 2.1 watt-hours. Charging the battery takes only 45 minutes using the cable that comes with the lenses.
Other projections of Google Glass.

Experts from the Medical University of Stanford (California) have created a face recognition software for Google Glass, glasses that feature a built-in screen, and have already tested some 100 children with autism spectrum disorder.

This is the second phase of the experiment. The first started a few years ago when Stanford received funding for the project and 35 glasses donated by the technology giant.
