I was approached by someone from GDG Kuwait who asked me if I was interested in checking out the Google Glass he had in a small black bag. Of course I said yes and started playing around with its features. What I really wanted to know was whether it was worth KD 450. The Google Glass screen is pretty big, it’s equivalent to a 25 inch high-definition screen.
No one can see what you see on the screen unless they really get up close. The way you take a video or photo is very impressive, you just ask it to take a photo “Okay Glass, take a picture”. If you need to take a photo is a quiet area you just wink. Glass has live step by step navigation which is great since you won’t be using any of your hands.
Google Glass runs on Android and already has a decent amount of apps available. The battery life was the only down side, it lasts an hour but because it’s only on when you give it a command or so then goes on stand-by it should give you a day worth of battery life.
I thought there was no way to physically navigate but there is, you swype your finger while touching Google Glass to navigate the menu or a gallery; that came in handy. I think it’s worth the money, just not right now. Wait for the final product.
