Over the last few weeks, more information has come out about Google Glass than ever. Between the multiple patents that Google has filed for their futuristic device and the hackathons being held in San Francisco and New York, Glass is becoming more and more of a reality. The latest news to come out are these FCC documents about Glass. The specific device that went through the FCC is the Explorer Edition. All we learn about that is inside of the wearable tech is that it is using a Broadcom 2.4GHz 802.11 b/g WiFi radio that’s been paired with a Bluetooth 4.0 + LE module. There is also a reference to an “integral vibrating element that provides audio to the user via contact with the user’s head.”
Hopefully with the device now strolling through the FCC, it means the developers who are part of the Glass Explorer Program will be getting their hands onto the device. As someone who pre-ordered the device at Google IO (#1549), I cannot wait to use the headset and see exactly what is possible with Glass.
I will most definitely be sharing my experience with Glass with all of you. Stay tuned!
