Google Glass can best be described as a wearable computer with an optical head-mounted display (OHMD). By using voice commands the glasses can take pictures, videos and essentially do everything else that you could on Google. Wearers can search for directions, check their email and connect to social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. Sounds pretty cool, right?
