Google glass is a wearable computer with OHMD (optical head-mounted display) developed by Google in their research and development project named Project Glass. Their mission is to produce a mass-market ubiquitous computer.

Google is considering partnership with sunglass retailers such as Warby Parker and Ray-Ban since the frames do not currently have lenses fitted to them. They may open retail stores to allow customers to try on the device. On the side of Google Glass is located a touchpad which allows users to control the device by swiping through an interface displayed on the screen. It also has the ability to record 720p HD videos and take photos. Google Glass uses many existing Google applications such a Google Maps, Google+, Google Now and Gmail.

In 2012, Google Glass received recognition as one of the “Best Inventions of the Year 2012” by Time Magazine.

But of course nothing is perfect. On 31 July 2013, it was reported that diving while wearing Google Glass is likely to be banned in UK being deemed careless driving and therefore a fixed penalty offense following a decision by the Department for transport. In October 2013, a driver was ticketed for driving with monitor visible to driver (Google Glass) after being pulled over for speeding. The driver was reportedly the first to be ticketed for driving while wearing a Google Glass.
