Does the smartwatch have a place on your wrist? Will it empty your pockets of that smartphone? We take a look at what could be.
You remember the Glass Foundry, right? Those were the events held in San Francisco and New York in which developers were invited to come and check out Google Glass.
Soumya Mohan, who used the Glass at a tech talk organized at Stanford, took to Quora to describe how the user interface looks and works.
More details have surfaced about Google Glass, after the the device passed through the FCC. It looks like bone-conducting speakers are confirmed for the headset.

Google Glass seems plucked straight out of a sci-fi movie. But the “smart glasses” are very real, and the designers and engineers that make them have some very real problems to solve.
Google Glass hackathons scheduled for late January and early February, devs to get their Glass on-site
Google has set the Glass Foundry hackathons in NY and SF late January. Developers get to receive their Google Glass and build apps for the wearable tech.
