Google Glass sensors revealed, would make for a stunningly accurate augmented reality device
You can find the full list of specs below, but we’ll first just mention that with all the included sensors Google Glass can easily determine exactly not just where you are located but where you are looking at.
The finding comes from developer Lance Nanek who managed to install an Android app to the device using debug mode and list all the sensors. Here is what Google Glass has pre-installed:
- MPL Gyroscope
- MPL Accelerometer
- MPL Magnetic Field
- MPL Orientation
- MPL Rotation Vector
- MPL Linear Acceleration
- MPL Gravity
- LTR-506ALS Light sensor
- Rotation Vector Sensor
- Gravity Sensor
- Linear Acceleration Sensor
- Orientation Sensor
- Corrected Gyroscope Sensor
Location comes from the cellular network if you are tethered, or from Wi-Fi if you are not. That opens up a lot of possibilities for augmented reality app developers, doesn’t it?

let's just hope the price won't be expensive

Gravity Sensor? So it will only work half as well on the moon? And im guessing not at all on the ISS

Correct me if I'm wrong but why would the gravity sensor affect how well the device works

talking about the sensor itself, not the product as a whole.
