    Infographic: How Google Glass Works

    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 won‘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: “œWhere is the processor?“ and “œWhere is the ON switch?“ to more difficult ones to answer like: “œHow does the augmented reality work?“

    Luckily for us, a techie artist called Martin Missfeldt created an infographic that explains the wonders of technology behind Google‘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.

One thing that is for sure is that, according to Google, it will come out before the end of the year for “œless than $1,500.“
