Google Glass now comes out of the box with 2GB of RAM

Google Glass now comes out of the box with 2GB of RAM
A Google+ post from the Google Glass account, highlighted some of the changes made to the connected specs over the last year. Forgetting for a  moment that the wearable will now come with 2GB of RAM, double the amount that Glass had shipped with, there have been other improvements made as a result of feedback from Glass users.

For example, battery life on Google Glass has been extended by 20% over the last 12 months. Voice search is now 10% faster, and Glass now comes with support for prescription lens and frames.

You can now frame your pictures on Glass easier by saying "Ok glass, show the viewfinder." You will see four "L's," with one in each corner (see the picture below) so that you can frame the shot. To snap the photo, say "Ok glass, take a picture," wink, or press the camera button. And two new Google Now cards are available for Glass. One reminds you where you have parked your car, while the other tells you when you have a package coming.

With Google I/O 2014 just hours away from starting, we should be hearing more about Google Glass over the next two days.

Tell Glass to show you the viewfinder to help you frame a picture

How about putting the screen on the left side of the eyes and drop the price

It's still in the development phase. Once it goes retail the price will be much lower.

So Google Glass can continually record using 1GB buffer, sort of like a dash cam. Using advanced data compression techniques, Google Glass uploads this footage to their servers. It's like having a dash cam with infinite storage.

Only thing lagging is your brain. Every one know that 2 GB can run desktop windows but can it support Battlefield 4? The extra ram is to prep android platform for the next software jump. Supporting OpenGL ES 3.0 games. With 80% market share they need to add more sophisticated os features to take on Microsoft desktop computing in enterprise. Waiting for the day that my Android can replace my windows desktop play battlefield 6.

Because MS and Apple have all sorts of products like Glass that don't have lag. In other words- they have nothing comparable to Glass. Get over yourself, dig a hole, jump in and bury yourself.
