It’s been more than a year since futuristic hopefuls have been talking about Google’s Project Glass, where a HUD (heads-up display) would be placed in front of the users field of vision by wearing the gadget like a pair of glasses. But there’s something special: some of the specs have been leaked since Project Glass has hit the FCC. First off, there’s some standard parts, like a Broadcom 2.4GHz 802.11 b/g WiFi radio and a Bluetooth 4.0 low-energy module.
The magic happens in a sentence where there’s an “integral vibrating element that provides audio to the user via contact with the user’s head” — bone-conduction. Basically it plays with the science that occurs between human bones and the rest of the body, and through that, transmits audible sounds by literally vibrating sound into your skull. Talk about cutting-edge from Google.
