Earlier today Joshua Topolsky from The Verge reported his hands-on experience with Google Glass, an extensive futuristic accessory from Google. Questions remained whether Glass would work with the iPhone, but Topolsky reported since the device does not have a cellular radio it will be able to tether data from the iPhone:
The device gets data through Wi-Fi on its own, or it can tether via Bluetooth to an Android device or iPhone and use its 3G or 4G data while out and about. There’s no cellular radio in Glass, but it does have a GPS chip.
TechCrunch reports Google has confirmed to them Glass will work with the iPhone as Topolsky reported, beyond using its cellular connection:
Google just confirmed to us that this is indeed correct, though the company didn’t want to comment on the details of how this will work.
So Google Glass will not be exclusively to Android handsets. Most likely there could be a Glass iOS app to connect your iPhone to Glass via Bluetooth. Google Glass is set to launch in 2013 with a consumer price tag under $1500.
Would you be interested in buying Google Glass? And also wear it daily in public? Or are we not ready for something like this yet?
