What's in the Glass: more details about Google's Project Glass surface
Google’s Project Glass has captivated our imagination recently with the amazing photographic options a wearable display provides and the unique point of view. And now we have even more details about the glasses with the first actual shot of them not being worn.

The images come from the Google Glass Walk from a couple of days ago in San Francisco, with even Sergey Brin taking part. 

The biggest novelty here is that on those close-up images you can actually get to see what's in the glass. Not clearly – it looks like menus, but we'll let you decipher it yourself. The eyeband itself seems to hold a camera shutter button and what we can see from the image is a small power button on the bottom of the side panel. There's also a microUSB port for charging the device.

The biggest news to take away from here though is that the design and everything else will probably change by the time this becomes a retail product:

“These are very early prototypes, mostly hand assembled and no where near what the final product will look like - so all those specs are likely going to change dramatically before they get close to even being in beta.”

I would think it would make more sense to have that little housing (on the right) on the top portion of the frame... it looks to obstruct eyesight on your right hand side in the upper part of your vision.

I was gonna say, the guy in the third photograph has a truly epic mustache. I'm excited to see what the final product looks like. If it's a reasonable price, I'm getting it. And knowing Google, it'll probably be a reasonable price. Maybe Motorola will be involved in the manufacture of these devices?

I think Motorola will be involved with android @ home, Google TV desktop android and this. as ive said before Google COULD juice up from Motorola with other things

AND what about the other eye? You're just seeing with one of your eyes?

Seems like they changed the design. The small screen seems a little bigger and more centered with the eye, so looking at it will be easier.

His moustache looks like something that crawled out of my shower drain the other day, a house centipede is what i think it was. =(
