Glass includes a camera that can take five megapixel images or shoot 720-pixel video, has wireless connectivity and 16GB of storage with 12MB available to the wearer, and includes a battery designed to last for hours.

Glass works in a way that will he instantly familiar to people who have used a tablet or mobile phone to glance at a map and at the surroundings. Unlike many earlier devices, Glass incorporates a still image and video capability.
