Google has finally made an entry into the wearable tech market with the launch of the Goggle Glasses. Google had first announced the smart headset in the summer of 2012 at its developers’ conference.
Google Glass is nothing but a headset that you wear like a pair of eyeglasses. The headset has a small prism-like screen tucked into the upper corner of the frame that keeps you always plugged into your e-mail, calls, and other notifications, so you don’t have to miss a beat.
When you think of it technically, it sounds a bit silly. Why will people want to have a computer on their face?

Though it sounds something that is out of the league, the idea behind this is to bring the technology closer which will make it easier to disengage from it.
Instead of having your head bent over a screen in your hand, you can look up. You can also make that decision immediately and get on with your day instead of flicking through a list of notifications or eMails to see if you missed something important.
Google Glasses work in a unique way as it is designed to provide a secondary screen for your device, so just hook it up to your phone to get the notifications and other information.

There are various ways to operate a Google Glass; you can use voice commands for Glass by adding the phrase “Okay, Glass” and start the app, start a call, take a picture, etc.
There is a touchpad on the sides of the device — the part that goes over your ear, which you can tap or swipe for navigation.
