Google recently published the specs for its Google Glass augmented reality product. The company said that Google Glass is equipped with a 5-megapixel camera capable of recording 720p video, a bone conduction transducer for audio—similar tech has been used in Jawbone Bluetooth headsets—support for 802.11b/g Wi-Fi networks, 16GB of flash storage (12GB is usable), Bluetooth, one day of battery life and a microUSB charging port.

Google said that Glass users can expect the device to provide a “high resolution display [that] is the equivalent of [viewing] a 25-inch high definition screen from eight feet away.”

Other features, such as GPS and SMS messaging, will require the use of a smartphone paired to Google Glass using the company’s new MyGlass Android application. The Google Glass Explorer Edition is expected to ship sometime this month and it should be available to the general public later this year for under $1,500 per pair.
