  1. I have heard about it since long time but never went into details.
    Franky, it never impressed me but the ‘flow of writing’ in this article certainly did.

    Benefit of Google Glass is conveyed in one sentence: “No need to bring head downwards but instead upwards.” :)

    Article touched usability as well as Technical aspect. But, considering I am reading about it for the very first time, I have some questions which still remain unanswered.
    1. I understand it is standalone device but can we connect it to Phone? If so, what would be benefit? Screen Mirroring?
    2. and Approximate Price?

  2. Hello Rohit,

    1. Google glass is standalone device but it will work effectively when you connect it with your Android / iOS device. They have app called MyGlass which will send data to your glass and also you can use your mobile internet data when you are not in range of wifi. Yes this application has screen mirroring feature, last picture of this article is screenshot of screencast.
    2. Write now prize is 1500$ + tax
