Google Glass is a type of wearable technology with an optical head-mounted display (OHMD). It was developed by Google. Google Glass displays information in a smartphone-like hands-free format. With Google Glass, you are able to view social media feeds, text, Google Maps, as well as navigate with GPS and take photos. Google released it to public in April 2014. Google Glass is smaller and slimmer than previous head-mounted display designs. Wearers communicate with the Internet via natural language voice commands. In June 2014, Nepal Government adopted Google Glass for tackling poachers of wild animals and herbs of Chitwan International Park and other parks listed under World heritage sites. Google offers a companion Android and iOS app called MyGlass, which allows the user to configure and manage the device. Many developers and companies have built applications for Glass, including news apps, facial recognition, exercise, photo manipulation, translation, and sharing to social networks, such as Facebook and Twitter.
Originally the Google Glass was only available to “Explorers” better known as developers. Finally Google offered a one day sale on April 15, 2014 allowing the general public to purchase the Glass for a whopping $1500.
