Google has started to ship their highly anticipated Google Glass devices.
Touted as ‘future tech’, Google has released the technical specifications of their new wearable devices, which started shipping to app developers last week.
Expected to be released to consumers later this year, the first edition of the Google Glasses won’t come cheap with an expected price tag of just under $1500. Its impeding release was announced by Google co-founder Sergey Brin at a recent event.
Google Glass will be the first publicly launched product based solely on augmented reality technology allowing for live data interactions with landmarks, people and products via the device.

I was worried that my need for prescription glasses would prevent me from ever owning a pair of Google Glasses, but Google has released a statement that the device will be created to allow for prescription frames.
