Google Glass: futuristic and applicable or fun toy? The debate is still raging and until the normal citizen can get their hands on it, we wonâ€™t know for sure. Before it does, though, people were starting to ask how it actually works, and many questions arose. From simple questions like: â€œWhere is the processor?â€ and â€œWhere is the ON switch?â€ to more difficult ones to answer like: â€œHow does the augmented reality work?â€
Luckily for us, a techie artist called Martin Missfeldt created an infographic that explains the wonders of technology behind Googleâ€™s technologically-enhanced Glass. The prism inside Glass projects a layer over the light generated by the environment around you. Meanwhile, the prism focuses the image directly on your retina.
But donâ€™t let me spoil all the fun, check out the infographic below. One nagging question remains in the back of my mind, though. Where the heck would I turn the thing on? One thing that is for sure is that, according to Google, it will come out before the end of the year for â€œless than $1,500.â€
