Google Glass devices have started shipping to developers, the first time the augmented reality device has been used by people outside the company.
The search engine giant has released a guide that instructs developers on how to write software for Google Glass, but also informing them that showing advertising to wearers is banned.
Google revealed a list of Google Glass specs on the Google support pages, which feature a small high resolution transparent panel in the top right hand corner of the wearer’s field of vision “equivalent of a 25-inch high definition screen from eight feet away”.
The augmented reality glasses have a 5-megapixel camera capable of shooting HD 720p video inbuilt into the solid portion behind the screen and come equipped with 16GB of flash storage, although only 12GB is available to the user.
On one battery charge Google advises that Google Glass will provide “one full day of typical use”, but also warns that some features are more battery intensive than others.
As the first developers receive their Google Glass headsets, user videos are beginning to appear on YouTube and other video sources showing what the augmented reality tech can really do.
